Porsche 904 Carrera GTS

Although it was officially named Carrera GTS, it opened a new chapter in Porsche’s sporting history under the internal designation 904.

The 904, designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (known as “Butzi”), anticipated, from a technical point of view, much that did not become the norm in racing car manufacturing until later: mixed steel/plastic construction,
low weight, small frontal area.

It was the first Porsche with a plastic body and 100 examples had to be built in order to qualify for the GT class.
This was followed by a further 20 vehicles, of which 16 were assembled. The rest provided the parts for the spare parts store.
