This car always fascinated me. It is the essence of a driving machine. Power, no weight, The driver feet in front of the front axle and no roof. Pure fun to drive it.

You cannot find any professional RC versions of this car. The only is a German brand which had a cable controlled version with a lousy body.
Tamiya made a later version of this car with the 58003 model, the 908/3 version with the large air intake and the rear winglets, which Porsche added later n the real car to give it more high speed stability.

I prefer the flat version which declassified all competitiors, and forced race associations to change the rules so that this car could only race one season - winning all races. A knockoff version of this car was bulit fo hill climb races only, The famous 909.

Absolutely fantastic! I love these open-cockpit cars, and I wish someone would do a few RC versions (or at least that Tamiya did a rere 58003).
