Chassis: 907-003
Built specifically for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, chassis 907-003 was shared by Jochen Rindt and Gerhard Mitter. During qualifying, Rindt reached a top speed of 302 km/h, which undoubtedly was a new record for a two-litre engined car. Unfortunately, the car was forced to retire after just 103 laps with a damaged camshaft due to over-revving. In a subsequent test, the car was extensively damaged. Still awaiting repairs, it was acquired early in 1968 by Porsche privateer racer Karl von Wendt. Pre-occupied with racing other Porsches, he did not have the time, nor did Porsche themselves, to repair the 907. Von Wendt eventually sold the car to his former team-mate Willy Kauhsen. He later did have the time and resources to reconstruct the longtail 907. It returned to Le Mans in 2014 when it was driven by Porsche stalwart Jürgen Barth during the Le Mans Classic.
