1968 Porsche 908
Imagine a car that rocked the Nurburgring 1000 km race in three different decades, inspiring artist Stamatis Tsirdimos to craft a cool poster of the 1968 Porsche 908. This Porsche isn't just any car – it's like the big sibling of the famous 917, leading the way to its epic victories. This story is about a racecar that only a few lucky folks got their hands on, coming in three shapes and sizes with different engines.
In the world of this Porsche 908 poster, we're diving into the tale of a car that can do it all. It's a champ in super long races and those uphill battles. It can handle speedy tracks and slower ones too. The 908 is the first Porsche sports car with a big 3.0-liter, 8-cylinder engine – pretty strong stuff! It's not as powerful as those F1 engines you might have heard about, but it's built to last in those endurance races.
This Porsche 908 poster takes you through the changes in its design. First, it's got a sleek closed style that's great for slicing through the air on fast tracks. Then, it switches to an open spider style that's lighter. You can catch these cars zooming around places like the Targa Florio and Nurburgring.
One cool car in this poster is a Porsche 908 with a short-tail look, which means it's got a compact back end. This speedy machine hit the 1000km Spa race in May 1968, but it couldn't finish because of heavy rain and a run-in with a telegraph pole. But guess what? That same car has been fixed up and is now part of historic racing events, like a blast from the past. It even made its way to a fancy art exhibit called "Porsche by Design: Seducing the Speed" in North Carolina. Cool, right?
Now you can own a piece of this car's history with the awesome 1968 Porsche 908 poster made by Stamatis Tsirdimos. You can choose to get it as a super fancy art print or as a regular poster – whatever floats your boat!
Stamatis Tsirdimos, known as Stam, is a freelance art director residing in Marathon, Greece. His deep love for cars, especially Formula 1 cars, traces back to childhood days spent playing Super Top Trump cards and avidly watching Formula 1 Grand Prix races. Evolving into a professional, Stam delved into the artistic side of cars, expanding his focus to racing cars, historical vehicles, and prototypes. His unique approach involves designing cars not just as sketches or 3D models, but rather, in his words, in "a photographic manner with the imperfections that handcrafted work brings".
