Those with sharp eyes may have picked up from our Calendar that the Le Mans Classic has been postponed yet again, until July 2022. We at Porsche Road & Race are as disappointed as the rest of you, and so we have decided to run a few of our photos over the next couple of weeks as a reminder of how good the 2018 event was.
The first of these photos is this fantastic looking 904 Carrera GTS, in my eyes, still one of the most gorgeous, streamlined and iconic race cars ever produced. Of course the 904 started the whole ‘plastic Porsche’ era in the 1960s, that culminated in the awesome Porsche 917 in 1969, and which gave the manufacturer its first Le Mans title in 1970.
Our photo shows the Fuhrmann-engined 4-cylinder #79 Carrera GTS as it approaches the right hand sweep of Tertre Rouge driven by Boden/Lins.
