I have gathered a lot of info of different 911 SWB racecars, and especially the wonderful
What a masterpiece this is...800kg...2,0 flat 6 with 3x46 IDA Webers pumping out 210 BHP/8100RPM.
4 prototypes buildt on 67S chassinumbers and 20 "series" cars on the 68 chassinumbers
As i have investigated every chassinumbers life, i have found many interesting things during my search over the last 10 years that i have been working on this
An example is 911R #001....11899001
This is the record car from Monza
Porsche was to set the 2000ccm class record with the 906 but the cruel surface of the Monza was so tough that they opted for the new special 911...the 911R.
So 911 R#001 was prepared and was driven to Monza akong with 911R #002.
#002 was brought as a spare car.
To make a long story short...19 records were made...90 tires were used!
One of the records was a 96 hour run with a average of 209 kmh.
And this car was restored in the 1990's in the US, and the pics from Monza was all black and white photos.
And they all claimed that the car was white with green stripes as the main sponsor was BP.
So it was made with green stripes
I also thought this was right, all untill i got the photos from Herr Lars Weber.
He was a mechanic for Porsche during the Monza run and had taken his own pictures.
His own...colour pisc!
And now we see that the car was white...but with ORANGE stripes!
So time to make the 11899001R right again!
