A Porsche 911 with Pedigree

Many people regard the original Porsche 911 as one of the most fantastic sports cars of all time. It's steering was light and talkative, its handling was intuitive, and its sound was as sonorous as a siren’s.

Evo magazine had the lucky opportunity to test one such 911, a road legal racer with period pedigree. This one left the factory floor in Stuttgart to go rally racing, and after a stint in Point A-to-B racing, went on to race three times in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

It's current setup matches its final livery, which it donned at Circuit de la Sarthe. At the time of this video, the special 911 was going up for auction. Let's hope the buyer continues this car’s fantastic history of period and historic racing.
