This 1970 Porsche 908/3, chassis #004, was recently offered for sale at 2013 Amelia Island Auto Auction. It failed to sell with high bid of $1,300,000

#004 history

According to the research of Dale Miller, a Porsche race car expert and former PCA historian, chassis number 004 was originally designated as a spare chassis to be used for flex testing at the Weissach racing development facility. As a test chassis, 004 was never fitted with a body or raced, and following development, it was stored by Porsche until 1976, when the car was sold to Kremer Racing with a package of spare parts (mostly consisting of suspension pieces). Kremer retained the car as a backup to chassis number 006, which they were then actively campaigning.

Never used by Kremer, chassis number 004 and its accompanying spare parts were sold to Bill Bradley Racing, who in turn sold them to Mr. Miller in 1996. In addition to his vast knowledge as a Porsche historian, Mr. Miller is notable as the owner of Miller Historic Motorcars and is a respected trader of rare Porsche prototype race cars. Recognizing this spyder’s unique provenance, Mr. Miller set about a restoration that would finally take chassis number 004 to the status of a complete, fully-bodied, and proper 908/3. The restoration was completed in 2005, and 004 was then delivered to a buyer-in-waiting, who has only raced the car about a dozen times since the restoration.
