Chassis: 907-031
The penultimate 907 built, this example was entered by the works team in 1968 Nürburgring 1000 km for Jochen Neerpasch and Joe Buzzetta. After starting sixth on the grid, they finished fourth overall. Ahead of the 1969 season, it was sold to Spanish privateer Alex Soler-Roig, who entered the car in the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours, where he finished fourth overall together with Rudi Lins. Soler-Roig then won the Spanish championship race at Jarama in June of 1969. The following year, chassis 907-031 was raced by André Wicky. The Swiss gentleman campaigned the eight-cylinder engined extensively, including at Le Mans in 1970. The 907's long contemporary racing career lasted through to the summer of 1973.

It was then sold by Wicky to compatriot Albert Eggs with a six-cylinder engine fitted. In 1983, Eggs sold the car to German enthusiast Ernst Schuster. He sourced a correct flat-eight engine and had the car restored during the 1990s by specialists in the United States that included Butch Dennison and Robert Hatchman. The complicated eight-cylinder engine was restored by former Porsche employees Gustav Nietsche and Valentin Schäffer. The work was completed in 1995, which allowed Schuster to campaign the car in the Tour Auto. He then raced the car in a variety of historic events until the early 2000s. Still in full running order and beautiful condition, Schuster decided to consign the 907 to the 2022 Artcurial Retromobile sale after owning the car for nearly 40 years.
