When Porsche 907s Swept Daytona


Making motorsport history in 1968

Much more than an interim model that gave birth to the 908, Porsche’s 907 had a splendid career all its own. A bright highlight was its domination of the podium places at the Daytona 24 Hours in 1968.

Porsche 907L chassis 008, driven by hot-shots Jo Siffert and Hans Herrmann. A sticker showed its “Prototype” category.

The trio of elegant long-tail 907s finished 1-2-3 in the Daytona 24-hour race.
