On the seventh day of Christmas

… my true love proved to be a proper Porsche nerd: the 1960 718/2.

The 718/2 was Porsche’s experimental single-seater, driven by the likes of Stirling Moss in Formula 2. The 718/2 took four victories in its first full season, including two podium lock-outs, winning the manufacturer’s championship in 1960. A rule change would see the diminutive Porsche graduate to F1 the following year, where it only narrowly missed out on even greater glory against the newer and more powerful rivals from Lotus and Ferrari.
