Perhaps the most rare and unique of the late sixties Porsche prototypes was the 907 Coupe and was produced in two body types, K for Kurz (short) and LH for Langehecke (long). The cars ran most of the 1968 season and achieved overall victories at Daytona, Sebring, Targa Florio an the Nurburgring. Only 12 examples were built and each was equipped with a 2.2-liter fuel injected, four-cam, flat eight-cylinder engine, which required 220 man hours to build and produced an unheard of 275 horsepower.

The Porsche 907 was a sports car racing prototype built by Porsche in 1967 and 1968. It was based upon the 270hp Porsche 910 2200cc 8-cylinder engine which was developed for the new 3-liter prototype category effective with the 1968 racing season. Since the big V8 and V12 prototypes of Ford and Ferrari were banned, Porsche hoped to secure the World Sports Car Championship and maybe even get an overall win at Le Mans, since the competition had no suitable 3-liter prototypes yet, either. Things started well, with wins for Porsche 907s at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. Vic Elford and Umberto Maglioli drove a 907 to victory at the Targa Florio. In the 24 Hours of LeMans, postponed to late September due to political unrest in France, a Porsche 907 'longtail' placed second. This example is the car which won the Sebring 12 Hour race in 1968, and was driven by Jo Siffert and Hans Hermann.

This 1968 Porsche 907K Coupe, serial number 907-023 is powered by a 2.2 liter, horizontally opposed, eight-cylinder engine.

It was entered by Porsche Systems Engineering and was driven by Jo Stiffert and Hans Hermann.
