1964 Porsche 904 GTS coupe

In 1963, about the same time as the legendary Porsche 911 road car was introduced, Porsche embarked on a racing program built around the Porsche 904 GTS, it's first mid-engined race car and designed to compete in international road racing in the under 2-liter class. This Porsche 904 GTS is the car car built in the series and caries chassis number 904-002 as shown on the data plate, photo number 2. This car is unique in that it has short doors that terminate halfway down the side of the body. This car was originally built with long doors that cut into the lower part of the body. It is speculated that the change was made at some point in the late 1960s, possibly at the behest of designer Butzi Porsche. This Porsche 904 GTS also features a full leather interior making it exceptionally unique among the Porsche 904 series.All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.
