This Porsche 908 poster tells us the story of a racing car that won the Nurburgring 1000 km in three different decades. The Porsche 908 was among the cars that paved the way for the glorious 917 and its epic victories. A story of a racer produced in less than 30 units in three different body styles and various engines.

 

This Porsche 908 poster is the story of a multipurpose racecar.

There is a reason why Porsche 908 came in so many shapes and powertrain versions. It was a racing car dedicated to endurance racing and hill-climbing, as well as versions destined for fast and slow tracks. Furthermore, the 908 was the first sports car by Porsche stretching the maximum allowed engine size with its 3.0 litre, 8-cylinder boxer engine. With only two valves per cylinder and traditionally being air-cooled, the 908 initially had just 350 hp. Such power was way behind the F1 style engines in the class, altough they weren’t suitable for endurance racing.

Ferdinand Porsche-Porsche-908

The closed coupe bodied Porsche 908 was aimed to provide low drag at the fast track. Later it appeared also as a lighter open spider. Such bodies were raced at Targa Florio and Nurburgring. What you see at above is a Porsche 908 poster featuring one out of five cars fitted with the short-tail Kurzheck bodywork. This particular car entered in 1000km Spa in May 1968. Unfortunately, it didn’t finish due to heavy rain and a spun which send the car into a telegraph pole. Nowadays that same car is restored to its previous glory and is a frequent participant in historic racing events. Even more, Porsche 908 K was featured in the North Carolina Museum of Art`s exhibition Porsche by Design: Seducing the Speed. Well deserved.
