Original Porsche 904 of 1964 year will go under the hammer

October 21, 2016 at 8:44 pm

Porsche 904 released as a limited edition from 1964 to 1965, obtained real recognition on the track. The official name of the model is Porsche Carrera GTS, but it has caused a problem with the names of a large number of models, from 901 to 911. The most significant racing victories in the history of the 904 include first place in the Targa Floria, first place at the race in Reims, and five of the top ten places in the GT Le Mans. Unfortunately, the sports car racing career ended too soon.

This 98th from 106 models of Porsche 904 is sent to the auction, which will take place on January 19, 2017 at the event Bonhams Scottsdale Car Week, Arizona. Released in 1964, the sports car was delivered to Jacksonville, Florida, where he was sold as the car for public roads.

A few years later, the car was bought by a well-known collector of Porsche in Europe, whom it belonged to for almost 30 years. Under the hood of the coupe with a fiberglass body is hidden 177-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine. We can only assume that most of the time the car stood in the garage with climate control. Considering the rarity of the model it is unlikely that the legendary Porsche race car will be sold at the low price.
