Built early in 1970, this works 911 racer was allocated to Gerard Larrousse for the 1970 Tour de France. Porsche had intended to run a 908 prototype in the rally but after inspecting the roads, the German manufacturer concluded the roads were too rough. Instead, they prepared this 911 ST, equipped with the latest 2.4-litre flat six. It was also further lightened and tipped the scales at well under 800 kg, making it the lightest 911-based racing car ever built. Upon arrival in France, it turned out that the entire route had just been re-surfaced. This made the pair of Matra prototypes the instant favourites. They were nevertheless challenged throughout the event by Larrousse but eventually he could do no better than third overall behind the two Matras.

Upon its return to the factory, the ex-Tour de France Porsche continued to be developed and it was eventually sold to a Greek customer and updated to Carrera RSR 2.8 specification. In this guise, it was then shipped to England where its racing career continued. The car passed through several hands in the United Kingdom before it was acquired by Kevin Morfett of Historika Porsche in 2006. At that time, there was a lot of confusion about exactly which Porsche had been raced by Larrousse in the 1970 Tour de France. Morfett was convinced he had bought the right car, and found all the proof he needed in the Porsche archives. The 911 was subsequently restored to its original configuration and was reunited with Larrousse. In 2018, he raced the car, together with Olly Bryant, in the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or.
