The Porsche Designd by "Butzi" Ferdinand Alexander Porsche

Porsche 904 GTS (Type 904) was created to bring the company back to its racing sports car roots, after withdrawn from Formula One at the end of the 1962 season. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (nicknamed “Butzi”), the grandson of the company’s founder, was tasked with designing a new two-seat competition coupe that could also be driven on the street with a mid-engine chassis configuration that had proven so successful with the racing department’s lightweight spiders. A run of 100 cars was approved to homologate the design for the FIA’s Group 3 GT category. This design is still widely considered one of the company’s most beautiful designs.
