Porsche purchased this car, chassis 1177, on behalf of Finnish racing legend Leo Kinnunen.
Kinnunen was at that time racing a Porsche 917/10 Turbo in the Interserie, the European equivalent to the North American Can-Am Challenge series, a series that he would win three years in a row from 1971 to ’73.
At Kinnunen’s request, the car was fitted with larger ST-style wheelarches to accommodate wider wheels and tires. A second example was subsequently built for another factory driver, Herbert Read More

The Kardex specified that the engine was number 20774, a 1300 Type 506 model. It is now equipped with a 3300 Read More
