Direct competitor in the Tiger development competition from Ferdinand Porsche's design office. Power was transmitted to the drive wheels by a Siemens-Porsche electromechanical clutch.
April 20, 1942 at 11.00 a program of tests was started, in which Henschel's prototype VK 45.01 (H) also took part. Both with the same tower and armament. Porsche's prototype won the special stage, Henschel won tests in maneuverability and maneuverability. After these tests, Adolf Hitler ordered the continuation of further tests, which took place in May at the Berka test tank center. Due to the complexity of the Porsche drive, Henschel won.

However, Porsche has already started the production of 100 pieces of chassis and their further fate in the form of the creation of 91 pieces of tank destroyer Ferdinand is generally known.
A total of 10 tanks were created (7 of them with a tower of the first design with a low roof). These 10 prototypes were produced in two five-piece series. The first series was characterized by narrower fenders (600 mm), the second series had fenders 700 mm wide. In total, the chassis Fgst.Nr.150001 - 150009 and Fgst.Nr.150013 were designed for full-fledged machines.
The latest source [~ 1 ~] lists Fgst.Nr.150001 - 150014. These are probably numbers that have been reserved for this type, but not all of them have actually been used.

The first prototype (not Fgst.Nr.150001, it was completed as the third or fourth) was completed on April 18, 1942 and was introduced to Hitler on his birthday on April 20, 1942. Another tank was completed 6/1942 and was sent for testing to Kummersdorf. The other two tanks were sent in 8/1942 for testing to the test center in Döllersheim. And the total number of Dollersheim prototypes rose to five at the end of 9/1942. These were used to train crews schwere Panzer-Abteilung 503. At the beginning of 11/1942, two tanks were sent to the Berka polygon, where comparative tests of the WaPrüf 6 with the competing VK 45.01 (H) took place.

The final decision on the use of the components of the running 100 pcs of the VK 45.01 (P) series was as follows:

- 90 chassis was to be rebuilt into a tank destroyer Ferdinand.
- 3 pcs VK 45.01 (P) should be converted to Rammtiger
- 3 pcs VK 45.01 (P) should be converted to Bergepanzer Tiger (P)
- 1 pc VK 45.01 (P) was to be converted to a machine with hydraulic steering Porsche type 102
- 2 pcs VK 45.01 (P) kept WaPrüf 6 for further tests and later also used for training

The last VK 45.01 (P) serial number Fgst.Nr.150013 was converted to a command machine Panzerbefehlswagen VI (P). Interestingly, the serial number Fgst.Nr.150013 was used on two different platforms. In the form of a tank destroyer Ferdinand figured on September 1, 1943 in the schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653 (tactical number 322).

The fate of the Porsche tank was predetermined at the design stage. It is not clear for what reasons Porsche promoted a completely unusable drive arrangement in the conditions of war...

Takýto kombinovaný benzíno-elektrický pohon sľuboval lepšie jazdné vlastnosti, dlhšiu životnosť a lepšie ovládanie vozidla než klasický pohon spaľovacím motorom a s mechanickou prevodovkou. Samozrejme, že zložitosť tejto koncepcie je v bojových podmienkach nevýhodná. V mierovom využití by bol tento druh pohonu veľmi zaujímavý.
