Long Tail Coupé
Chassis #: 917-019
Porsche 917
This Porsche 917K has a flat-twelve air-cooled engine mounted amidships, twin-overhead camshafts and fuel injection. The car is displayed in late 1971 configuration and is quite conservative given the raiment provided other 917s during the two championship years. A Martini car was modishly decorated in psychedelic colors. For LeMans, Porsche Styling painted an experimental 917/20 pink with dotted lines representing the various cuts of meat available from swine. It was named Big Bertha, The Truffle Pig of Zuffenhausen. One can be cheeky when one is a champion. The car was part of Porsche Salzburg in 1970. In 1971 it raced at Le Mans as a member of the Martini Racing Team, sponsored by Martini and Rossi and driven by Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep. It sported numerous experimental features including a magnesium tube frame.

Porsche 917This original 917 was part of Porsche Salzburg in 1970. In 1971, #917-019 raced as a member of the Martini Racing Team, the new name Louise Piech gave her organization following sponsorship from Martini & Rossi. Again the Piech team took Le Mans, the winning car driven by Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep and sporting numerous experimental features including a magnesium tube frame. Marko and van Lennep raced 917 #019 three times in 1971, although the results were not as fortuitous as they enjoyed at Le Mans. At Daytona's 24 Hours, wîth Rudi Lins as the third driver, a crash put the car out on the 462nd of 688 laps. At the Monza 100 Kilometers, a throttle linkage was the culprit shortly after mid-race. Engine failure put 718 #019 out at Spa, its last race. The car, preserved in late 1971 configuration, is quite conservative given the psychedelic raiment which graced other 917s during the two championship years.
