1968 Porsche 908 Works 'Short-Tail' Coupe

The Porsche 908 Works ‘Short-Tail’ Coupe is one of the first iterations of the legendary 908 and one of five ex-Works short-tail prototypes surviving.

Often referred to as a 908 K or “Kurzheck” (German for “short-tail”), the Porsche is powered by a 3-liter, flat 8-cylinder 908 engine producing 350 hp, and is one of two ‘sister’ cars (908-010 and 908-011) introduced by Porsche System Engineering as a Works entry at the 1968 Spa 1000 KM race.

It was expected to fetch $2.5-2.8m at RM Sotheby's in 2018.
