904

On a similar subject there is the Porsche GT which used to be called the 904, was changed to 914, and is now back to 904. This is the very functional fibreglass-bodied Coupé with the longdeveloped 4-camshaft Carrera engine behind the cockpit, but in front of the rear wheels, unlike production road-going Porsches in which the engine is still way out the back. The original conception was the 904GTS along with the got, which was the 6-cylinder production car, but the latter had to be changed to 911, at the request of Peugeot who reckoned to have a monopoly on car numbering with a zero in the middle. It was reasonable to assume that the 904 should be changed to 914 and the new competition 6-cylinder version to 916, but it seems that Peugeot are only excited about production cars, not competition cars, so as from now the fibreglass competition Coupé, which finished second in the snow of the Monte Carlo Rally, can be called a Porsche 904 once again, and the new one, when it reaches private hands will be a 906. Porsche do have trouble, for some time ago they called one of their models the "Continental" and got into difficulties with Lincoln Cars, the name being synonymous with the American firm, or so they said.


The Maglioli/Linge's Porsche 6-cylinder 904/6 Coupé in typical Targa Florio village motoring with the road bordered by stone walls and grass banks. 3rd overall, 3 in prototypes and 2nd in 1601-3000 class.


The 4-cylinder Porsche 904 GTS of Pucci/Klaas at the Targa Florio. They won Gran Turismo category and 1601-2000 cc class.


The new 8-cylinder Porsche 904/8 Bergspyder (#906-008/S-VP102) of Davis/Mitter looked most odd with its abbreviated bodywork at Targa Florio. Finished 2nd in general ranking, 2nd in prototypes category and 1st in 1601-3000 cc class.
