This 1960 Porsche RS-61 is one of thirteen Porsche Sports Racers built for the 1961 FIA season. In the 1961 racing season, FIA requirements included windscreen, two seats, trunk, et al -- essentially all the equipment for a 'street' car; thus the reason for this car being fitted with these amenities. This car, chassis number 718-068, was built for the 1961 racing season but was never raced and ended up in a museum in Japan, where it was purchased by its current owner and brought to the US in 2002. It is, perhaps, the most original RS61 left.
The car is powered by a four-cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower and 130 foot-pounds of torque. It has a Porsche gearbox and an independent suspension in both the front and rear.
