"After Porsche made a run at Formula One in the early 1960s the company returned to sportscar racing in earnest. In 1962 Ferdinand A. “Butzi” Porsche took on the designing of the new two-seat competition coupe that would replace the aging 718. The 904 utilized the same mid-engine layout of its predecessor but would be the first Porsche to use a ladder chassis and a fiberglass body. At 190-horsepower, the 2.0-liter flat-six engine was potent and reliable. The illustrious 904 went on to rack up race wins and class wins, marking the dawn of a new era for Porsche’s racing record. With fewer than 150 models built for homologation and racing, the 904 has garnered ever-increasing real-world auction prices. It’s a rare and beautiful piece of racing history that we can now all get to know much better."—Official description
