Unveiling a Rally Legend.


Gear up for an extraordinary journey back to the golden era of rally racing with the unveiling of the 1971 Porsche 914/6 GT Werkswagen, a masterpiece of automotive engineering and racing history. Set to grace The Amelia Auction 2024, this iconic racer carries an estimated value between $1,200,000 and $1,500,000, a testament to its unparalleled legacy and rarity.

With a prestigious lineage as one of only 12 factory Werkswagen 914/6 GTs crafted for the 1970 and 1971 racing seasons, this vehicle not only competed under the expert hands of Gérard Larrousse and Jean-Claude Perramond in the challenging 1971 Rallye Monte Carlo but also served as "Quick Vic" Elford's reconnaissance car for the Targa Florio. Its significance is further underscored by its prolonged retention within Porsche's test department until 1973, followed by a meticulous restoration and 30-year stewardship by Porsche factory race engineer Walter Näher.
