Porsche’s history in motorsports is a long one, laden with victories, achievements, and records that have arguably positioned them as the winningest manufacturer in history. The brand planted its racing roots early as Porsche Chassis No. 1 took a victory in its first race less than 5 weeks from its initial completion.
While it’s not a brand that dominated the racing world, Coca-Cola is arguably one of the most world renowned brands in our history. It seems fitting that such a brand would grace the body panels of one of the last Porsche 935s built for competition. Fabcar, in Tucker, Georgia, assembled the car from the most successful parts in its predecessors.
I fall in love with the little details. Each car has its own moments and marks that make it unique and tie it to the story that trails behind through the years, and these little aspects are what draw me in every time. While walking through the rows of Pebble Beach’s Councours d’Elegance, the Abarth Simca 2000 GT was the first to catch my eye.
In our first StanceWorks Aesthetics, I documented the Porsche 917K, so it made sense to go back even further and explore the elegant lines that gave rise to the 917. The Porsche 907 was first released at the 1967 24 Hours of LeMans and with it, Porsche hoped to capture the World Sportscar Championship. This particular 1968 Porsche 907K , chassis number 024, was driven to a first place finish in the 1968 12 Hours of Sebring by Jo Siffert and Hans Hermann.
