Porsche 908/3-007 spyder was a works race car and is one of eleven examples of the Mark 3 variant built for the 1970 and 1971 seasons.

The 908 originally was a closed coupe to provide low drag at fast tracks, but from 1969 on was mainly raced as the 908/2, a lighter open spyder. An even more compact 908/3 was introduced in 1970 to complement the heavy Porsche 917 on twisty tracks that favored nimble cars, like Targa Florio and Nurburgring. Sold off to privateers for 1972, various 908s were entered until the early 1980s, often retro-fitted with Porsche 934-based 2.1-liter turbocharged flat-6 engines.

Chassis 007 was entered in the 1970 Targa Florio in 'sunburst' livery as a works car driven by Vic Elford and Hans Hermann. It crashed out of the race on its first race lap, but sister cars 008 and 009 finished the race first and second respectively.

908/3-007 was repaired over the winter and upgraded to 1971 specification with tailfins. It was next entered into the 1,000 Km Nurburgring under Martini Racing livery and finished third at the hands of Gijs von Lennep and Helmut Marko.

In 1973, the sports car races were dominated by F1-powered prototypes and chassis 007 was sold to a Mr. Fernandez in Spain. He then sold the car in 1976 to Egon Evertz, a German Porsche enthusiast who was highly successful in sprint races and hillclimbs with various Porsches. The car stayed in German hands until 1995 when it was sold to the US.

Today the car wears its 1970 Targa Florio sunburst-over-white works livery as restored by Ron Greuner at Morspeed (now a part of Jerry Woods Enterprises) for its debut at the 2000 Monterey Historic Races. The car was then sold to Europe where it was campaigned actively. It returned to the United States in 2007 and raced once again at the Monterey Historic Races.

In March 2012, the current owner purchased the car and began campaigning it in vintage events.
