First generation (1977–1981)
The first generation, launched in January 1977, was called the Hyundai HD1000 and was available in both truck and minibus (3 and 12-seater van, ambulance) versions. The truck was called the Porter. The HD1000 was discontinued in 1981.
Second generation (1986–1996)
In November 1986, Hyundai revived the label with the introduction of the second generation Porter, which was now a rebadged licensed second generation Mitsubishi Delica (L300).

It was built with the following body styles: 2-door truck, 4-door truck, 3-door van and 4-door van.
The upgraded second generation was a facelifted version of the second generation model. Round headlights, a steering wheel from the 1991 Sonata, and the dashboard from the newer Grace, were the main differences. In The Netherlands, it was called Hyundai H150.
The 1993 Porter was available with a regular cab, an extended cab, or a double cab. The four-cylinder engine was called the Cyclone D4BX, a Hyundai built version of Mitsubishi's 4D56 2.5 liter diesel four-cylinder.
