Chassis: 908/03-008
Easily the most successful of all 908/3s built, chassis 008 was driven to each of the type's three major victories in 1970 and 1971. In its debut season and wearing Gulf colours, Jo Siffert and Brian Redman used it to win the Targa Florio. Later in the month it was entered by the Porsche Salzburg squad for Vic Elford and Kurt Ahrens, who won at the Nürburgring. Now in Martini livery, it won again at the 'Ring in the hands of Vic Elford and Gérard Larrousse. The car's career was far from over as it was campaigned by Reinhold Joest for another dozen years, powered by a turbocharged engine from 1975 and winning a minor race as late as 1982. Now restored to its 1970 Targa Florio specification, this very important Porsche is now part of the formidable Jerry Seinfeld collection.
