Seen: The Porsche 904 Living Legend comes to life
A brief encounter at the gas station. At night, near Stuttgart Airport. A silver Porsche and her. Memory holds on to the moment for a while, immediately flashing images of the 1963 mid-engine Carrera GTS into the mind’s eye. The lightweight racing legend, celebrated as the 904, was just as radically compact, small and puristic as the present-day concept it inspired. A high-revving motorcycle engine could be just the thing to power the roughly 900-kilogram racer, based on the same platform as the VW XL1. We’d be happy to offer our services as co-driver.
