Chassis 908/03-001 Used exclusively as as test and development car, this, the very first 908/3, was never raced in period. Following its duties on the test track, it was stored by Porsche until it was acquired from the factory by Dale Miller of Miller Historic Motorcars in the 1990s. He had th>>>

Chassis 908/03-002 One of the development prototypes, this chassis was extensively used for testing in 1970 and 1971. It was also driven by legendary journalist and racing car driver Paul Frere, while working on his book about Porsche prototypes. Liveried in Martini colours, it may have also b>>>

Chassis 908/03-003 One of the first batch of prototypes built early in 1970, chassis 003 served as a T-car at that year's Targa Florio. It was driven in practice only by Hans Herrmann and Vic Elford. Partnered by Richard Attwood, Herrmann was back behind the wheel of this 908/3 later in the mo>>>

Chassis 908/03-004 Originally constructed for flex-testing, this development prototype chassis was not raced in period. In 1976 it was sold to Kremer Racing along with a considerable pile of spares. Serving as a back-up car, chassis 004 again did not turn a wheel in anger. During the 1990s, it>>>

Chassis 908/03-007 This 908/3 was allocated to Vic Elford for the 1970 Targa Florio where the versatile Englishman qualified second only to crash out during the race. Repaired and updated to the latest specification, it was possibly next used for the 1971 Nürburgring 1000 km where Gijs va>>>

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 b>>>

Chassis 908/03-009 The ninth 908/3 built, this example was one of the four examples entered in the 1970 Targa Florio. Sporting Gulf colours, it was driven by Leo Kinnunen and Pedro Rodriguez. Starting fifth, the talented pairing finished the race in second place behind their team-mates. Chassi>>>

Chassis 908/03-012 The first of two 908/3s for the 1971 season, chassis 012 was only used that year in the Nürburgring 1000 km. Entered for Derek Bell and Jo Siffert, it retired from the race early after the new lightweight frame failed. Fully repaired, it was later sold to Reinhold Joest>>>

Chassis 908/03-013 Chassis 013 was the final example produced and like the other new-for-1971 908/3, it was only raced by the works teams at the Nürburgring. Pedro Rodriguez and Jo Siffert nurtured the Gulf-liveried home to second. Soon after it was later sold to a privateer, and campaign>>>
