1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta/Exterior (the racing one)
1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta/Exterior (the classy one)
The last week I asked which one do you like more. And I think the sporty one wins. I prefer the red one too, but not only for its interior. The exterior has some details I love: the bumpers have been removed, the side mirror is smaller, a lower sports suspension, a sports exhaust system, and mainly, those rear gills… an extremely beautiful things.
Once upon a time in Porsche:
Ferdinand Alexander Porsche designing the 911 (project number 901). F. A. Porsche later established his own design company called “Porsche Design”.
“Before the setting up of modern crash facilities, crash tests such as the one shown here for front, rear and roof structures on the 904 were carried out. In this first crash test in 1966 the performance of a Porsche 904 in crash conditions was tested. In order to simulate a front impact at a speed of 50 km/h, a Porsche 904 (530 kg empty weight, glass-fibre-reinforced plastic body) was dropped from a height of 10 meters. Before the first crash facility was developed in Weissach, 72 crash tests with impact speeds of up to 80 km/h were carried out in this manner.” via
