1968 Porsche 907 Longtail : Classic Cars

Porsche had long dominated the under two-liter sports car races, but in 1968, with the unveiling of the 907 model, Porsche became a contender for top honors. Powered by a normally aspirated eight-cylinder engine displacing only 2.2-liters, yet producing 270 hp, the 907 won three significant FIA World Championship races in 1968 - the Daytona 24 Hour, the 12 Hours of Sebring and the Targa Florio. Vic Elford was the winning driver in two of those events.

This vehicle, chassis number 005, was the Daytona 24 winner leading a 907 one-two-three sweep of the event, Porsche's first 24 hour race win. This specific car was also 2nd at the Monza 1000 km race in 1968, and was an unprecedented five-time Le Mans 24 race entry, clearly the best history example of the Porsche 907.
