The "formula" racing regulations of the 1960s call for racing cars with exposed wheels. Porsche develops a compliant single-seater. It is based on the successful 718 RSK, but has a longer wheelbase in order to accommodate larger fuel tanks, as well as a steering wheel in the center of cockpit.
In 1960, this successful 718 /2 wins the unofficial Formula 2 Manufacturers World Championship "Coupe des Constructeurs" and performs so well by 1961 that is is successfully used in Formula 1 races.
