Porsche's first two-litre, eight-cylinder vehicle is affectionally nicknamed "Grandmother" by the mechanics because of its exceptionally long motorsport career (1961-1964).
Its history of wins includes sensational class victories, such as those at the Targa Florio in 1962 and the 1,000-kilometer race at Nürburgring.
"Grandmother" dominated the European Hill Climb Championship in 1963 and in 1964, and twice drove Edgar Barth to the championship title.
