The 908/3 was Porsche's secret weapon for 1970 and was so effective that it never really got it's proper due. Built as a complement to the awesome 917, which overshadowed the 908/3, it assisted in securing Porsche's second straight world manufacturer's championship that year, as well as the 1971 championship. The concept of the car was a scaled down version of the 917, with they eight-cylinder engine from the previous 908/2, and a very special gearbox with the differential AFT of the transmission, thus having the driver/engine/transaxle assembly between the two axle assemblies (a true mid-engined car). A total of 13 examples were built to be utilized for only two races in 1970: The Targa Florio and the 1000km at the Nurburgring, winning both handily. A repeat appearance at the same two races in 1971, winning the Nurburgring, and the 908/3 went into retirement. Four of the cars were sold to privateers who campaigned the cars competitively for an unheard of additional 9 years. Perhaps the greatest testimony for the 908/3 turbo was in 1982 when on was leading the FIA Norisring race ahead of Porsche's Werkes Team 956's...a 12 year old car leading the state of the art 1982 LeMans winner for the initial 1/4 of the race!

This car, chassis 006 was sold to Dennesburger Racing in 1975. Driven by Herbert Mueller, the car finished 34d at Mugello, 9th at Dijon, DNF at Monza and Spa, and was 9th at the Osterreichring. Sold then to Kremer Racing it was campaigned by Klaus Ludwig to the 1977 German Sports car championship. Kremer later restored the car back to its 1971 configuration and sold it to collector Hans Deiter Latsheim of Colgne in 1980. Dale Miller purchased the car in 1995 and sold it to John Wean in 1996. Wean campaigned the car for two years in selected vintage events and traded it back to Miller, who sold it to a former Indy 500 winner and 3-time CART champion, Bobby Rahal. Rahal ran the car for one season and sold it on to it's current owner Greg Galdi in early 2003.
