1965 Porsche 904/6


There were only 6 Werks-904/6 Porsches built in 1965 and raced as 2 Liter Prototype. This 906-012 was first entered by the factory at the 100km Nuerburgring race and driven by Klass/Noecker finishing 6th overall. In June, 1965, Klass/Glemser started the 24hr of Le Mans leading the race in class and 3rd overall position until the morning hours at wich they quit with a broken cam shaft. At the International Ralley Coupe de Alpes, the race team of Boehringer/Wuetherich was leading the field for most of the race but retired early.

The car was sold in 1966 without the engine to George Drolsom of Florida. He drove it in the Bahama races 1967 and the 12 hours of Sebring finishing 1st in class.

In 1998, only three 904/6 ex-werks cars could be accounted for.

In 1997, the current owner, Mr. Robert Manshot, undertook an historic correct and authentic restoration of the car, back to the 1965 Le Mans specifications.
