…my true love knocked it out of the park. This is one of the two works 911 RSRs that took on the big boys at the final Targa Florio in 1973.

Experimental aero and engine alterations meant the still-largely standard 911s had to compete against the bespoke, ultralight prototypes from Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, with their flat-12 engines and slippery fibreglass bodywork.

But outrageous race-pace and rock-solid reliability saw Porsche come out on top once again, with the No. 8 RSR driven by Gijs van Lennep and Herbert Müller finishing a comfortable first overall with the No. 9 car you see here taking third.
