Porsche 917 Count Rossi’s Martini Racing/Porsche 917 Wyer-Gulf Racing
Obviously 917s are not street cars. However, Sarasota Café Racer, Ottokar Jacobs and friend, Gunter Spindler, hardcore Porsche collectors and vintage racers living near Vienna, wanted 917s that they could drive on some of Austria’s incredible roads. Ottokar owns and races a number of vintage (original) Porsche racecars, restored to their original livery, including a 917 Spyder.
Both his and Spindler’s 917s are handcrafted, painstakingly exact replicas of famous racecars that will never be in private hands. They showcase replicated space frames, drivetrains and suspensions along with road equipment. Both are powered by modified, high-horsepower 3.8-Liter Porsche engines fitted with signature 917 horizontal cooling fans in place the factory 911 vertical fans. via
