Stuttgart industrialist Heinrich Sauter, a former fighter pilot, found his Porsche 356 too heavy, so the story goes. He thus engaged Hans Klenk, soon to be a Mercedes-Benz test driver, to build a lightweight steel body. The car is lower and has suicide doors thought to provide a split-second edge at a LeMans start. Sauter, however, had little success with it. A Francois Picard then campaigned it in 1952 achieving six class wins, and in 1953 it was retrofitted with a stock Typ 527 55 horsepower 1500cc twin Solex engine and sold to California attorney Sam Mullin. Its final recorded race was at Pebble Beach in 1954 where it crashed, and then was mysteriously lost until 1982 when historian Ray Knight found it 'sitting outside in the Mid-West!' He finished the restoration in 1986 and it has been admired ever since on the rare occasions it has been shown.
