This is the Tubeframe car built for the 1980 DRM Championship by Jan Lundgardh (S), Josef Zierkelbach (D) and Porsche Engineer Eberhard Braun (D). to run in the under 2.0 L Class using one of the only two 1.4 L Turbo engines built by the factory in 1977 (The factory built Baby car won the 1977 Season final at Hockenheim using the other 1.4 L engine). The car then raced in the 1980-1981 German DRM Championship, the World Endurance Championship as well as at the 24H of Le Mans in 1981. A 3L Turbo engine was then installed for the 1982 season and the car was entered in further 4 rounds of the World Endurance Championship until retiring from Racing in 1984.
Due to the tubeframe construction the car was very light (It showed only 817 Kg on the weithing balance at the 1981 Le Mans 24H scrutineering) and therefore very competitive.
In the current ownership since 2004, the car has been completely frame up restored at no expense spared, altough the car still retains the original K3 Body panels fited in 1980. Restoration files and invoices (€ 600'000) are available. This car is very well known among Porsche Enthusiasts, the History meticulously documented and the chain of ownership absolutel
