After the 1967 LeMans race, the FIA decided to change the rules to limit maximum displacement to 4-liters. Porsche reworked the 8=907 to accept the new 3-liter engine, thus creating the 908. The new 908 boxer eight cylinder engine needed only 25 man-hours to assemble versus 225 man-hours to assemble the 907 engine. Porsche 908-019 is one of only two existing 908 coupes.
This factory car participated in only one race, the Austrian Grand Prix at Zeltweg. It was used as a street car in Australia for many years, and then restored back to a race car. This car has the original body with matching numbers of engine and gearbox cases.Also photographed at :
