    You can also see where the idea for the painted GT3 RS's nose/ intake originated

    Re: Pictures from Monterey

    Some interesting fact about the 908/3

    The 908/3 was Porsche's secret weapon for 1970 and was so effective that it never really got it's proper due. Built as a complement to the awesome 917, which overshadowed the 908/3, it assisted in securing Porsche's second straight world manufacturer's championship that year, as well as the 1971 championship. The concept of the car was a scaled down version of the 917, with the eight-cylinder engine from the previous 908/2, and a very special gearbox with the differential AFT of the transmission, thus having the driver/engine/trans-axle assembly between the two axle assemblies (a true mid-engined car). A total of 13 examples were built to be utilized for only two races in 1970: The Targa Florio and the 1000km at the Nurburgring, winning both handily. A repeat appearance at the same two races in 1971, winning the Nurburgring, and the 908/3 went into retirement. Four of the cars were sold to privateers who campaigned the cars competitively for an unheard of additional 9 years. Perhaps the greatest testimony for the 908/3 turbo was in 1982 when on was leading the FIA Norisring race ahead of Porsche's Werkes Team 956's...a 12 year old car leading the state of the art 1982 LeMans winner for the initial 1/4 of the race!

    Ferdinand Piech was obsessed with winning the World Manufacturers Championship in 1970, having sipped the champagne from Porsche's first championship in 1969. Piech was certain that Ferrari was building a 'secret' lightweight car to contest the short circuits, so a complement to the 917 was designed for contesting the Targa Florio and the Nurburgring events. Ferrari's 'secret weapon' never appeared and the Porsche 908/3 dominated the Targa and the Nurburgring so strongly that they were brought out of retirement for 1971, contributing to Porsche's domination of both the 1970 and the 1971 Manufacturer's Championship. Thirteen of these cars were built. Weighing a svelte 1,125 pounds with 350 horsepower, the 908/3 won both the Targa and the Nurburgring in 1970 and again in 1971. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that these cars were competitive for 10 years, with a turbo-engined 908/3 winning a championship race as late as 1980.

    The 908/3 engine produced 350 horsepower which was low when compared with the other Manufacturers engines. The reason the 908 was competitive was because it was light and its power-to-weight ratio was better than most.

    500kgs, 350HP, tubular chassis without any designed-in safety.

    Some very brave drivers too!
