Porsche 911 San Remo Rally Car

Porsche 911 San Remo Rally Car

The Porsche 911 San Remo Rally car is one of the wonderful cars that is housed at the Porsche museum. The ill-fated rally racing machine was driven by the legendary driver Walter Rhörl in 1981.

In the San Remo Rally the car was poised to win in a dominating fashion when the 911 SC suffered mechanical issues with the rear axle. This put the car out of the race.

Since then Porsche has done a full restoration of the machine and Mr. Rhörl was even able to drive it in 2011 Targa Tasmania rally race. The restoration was apparently so spot on that the car experience similar mechanical issues which once again prevented a victory.

None the less the car has an interesting story and this short video expands on the history of the rally racer.
