Porsche 901 2.0

The Porsche Museum’s oldest 901 is finished on October 22, 1964, with the chassis number 300.057 – five weeks after the production of the iconic sports car at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen has started with chassis number 300.007. Porsche delivers the signal-red car on the 27 November the same year, and from then on all traces are lost. Until a production team of Germany’s TV station RTL II finds the rusty remains of the sports car classic for their docu-soap “The Junk Troop” in a shed close to Brandenburg, southwest of Berlin. Experts from the Porsche Museum check numbers in the body, the dashboard and even handwritten scribbles in chalk on the inside of the door panels and declare the car to be genuine. The restoration takes a good two years and costs ca. 250,000 Euros. Now the 901 is ready to roll and represent the Porsche Museum at historic meetings.
