Porsche, Ford and Jaguar cars featured in various displays during the race weekend, Porsche certainly had the bragging rights given their magnificent display of cars direct from the Porsche Museum, Stuttgart.

PORSCHE: Porsche started selling cars in Australia in 1951, their 60th year celebrations in Australia included displays at major Porsche Dealer Networks throughout the country and the display at the Phillip Island Classic left everybody in no doubt they were taking things very seriously indeed. The appearance of the magnificent Porsche 935/78 'Moby Dick' said it all, having viewed the car in the Porsche Museum, Stuttgart I just had to see it again at Phillip Island and hear it running, woohoo!!

1978: #43: PORSCHE 935/78 'MOBY DICK' The 935/78 incorporated a flat six DOHC 4V boxer engine of 3,211cc capacity with twin turbo chargers and water cooled heads, producing 630kW (845bhp) at 8,200rpm. The gearbox was a four speed and the chassis was a steel monocoque supporting an outer skin of steel, aluminium and fibreglass construction. The maximum speed achieved was 366kmh.

The gearbox was a five speed and the chassis was an aluminium monocoque. The maximum speed achieved was 340kmh.

 

 

 

 

1969: #66: PORSCHE 908/02 'SPYDER' The 908/02 incorporated a 'mid mounted' DOHC flat eight boxer engine of 2,997cc capacity with vertical fan air cooling, producing 350bhp at 8,400rpm. The gearbox was a five speed and the chassis was a tubular aluminium space frame. The maximum speed achieved was 288kmh.
