Bill Devin was an automotive pioneer in the truest sense of the word. For his first car, the 1954 Devin Panhard, he modified a 2-cylinder Panhard engine using Norton Manx heads and created the first ever belt driven overhead cam engine. The cars were not only innovative but had significant racing success. In 1956 Jimmy Orr piloted a Devin Panhard to the SCCA National Championship in the H-Modified class.

In 1958 Devin built the Devin SS, a dual purpose sports car with Chevy V8 power. Like his first car, the SS was inventive. The car was built on a tube chassis which Devin sourced from engineer Malcolm MacGregor of Northern Ireland - giving the car deep European roots. Although Devin's initial idea was to build the best sports car possible, some found their way tot he racetrack. In fact, Pete Woods won the 1959 Cal Club C-Modified Championship in a Devin SS.

Devin SS #SR 4-9 was raced at the 2006 Monterey Historic Races by Andy Porterfield who was the original Devin factory driver in the late 1950's. Porterfield is also the winningest driver in SCCA history.
