Chassis: 908/03-002
One of the development prototypes, this chassis was extensively used for testing in 1970 and 1971. It was also driven by legendary journalist and racing car driver Paul Frere, while working on his book about Porsche prototypes. Liveried in Martini colours, it may have also been used by Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep during the 1971 Nürburgring 1000 km, where they finished third behind two sister cars. Stripped at the end of its racing career, chassis 002 was eventually acquired from the factory in 1998 by American Porsche expert Dale Miller and prepared for historic racing. While new bodywork was needed, Miller did manage to source a correct engine and transaxle. With the Martini colours re-applied, it was campaigned in select events by a longtime American owner between 1999 and 2014. Offered at auction in 2014, it returned to Europe and was campaigned by its most recent custodian during the 2022 season.
