Within the pantheon of classic cars, some are merely old, while others are timeless. The Porsche 910-018 falls squarely into the latter category. The Porsche 910 lineage is more than mere metal and mechanics; it's an icon, a sleek silhouette that cut through the racetracks of the 60s like a blade through silk.
The Porsche 910-018 stands as a remarkable symbol of Porsche's racing heritage. Although Chassis 018 didn't achieve monumental victories like some of its siblings, it demonstrated resilience and competitiveness in various races.
But it’s not all about horsepower or lap times; it's about the experience. Every inch and curve tells a story of innovation and ambition. It's a reminder of when cars were bold, drivers were heroes, and every race was a page in the annals of history. Owning, or even just beholding, the Porsche 910-018 is to connect with a legacy of style and speed.
It featured a 1991cc overhead camshaft flat-six engine, renowned for its Bosch mechanical fuel injection system. This engine could produce a maximum power of 235bhp at 7600rpm and a torque of 155lb ft at 6200rpm, delivering astounding performance characteristics.
Porsche updated the later 910s, including Chassis 018, with a number of updates. One of the most noteworthy was a widened front and rear tracks to improve further road holding, which was introduced after the 910-012 was built. This offered a balanced and responsive driving experience combined with a lightweight frame and sophisticated suspension system featuring double wishbones and coil-over Bilstein dampers.
Today, 910-018 is a collector’s grail, a vehicle that only a true Porsche aficionado could properly enjoy. An engineering masterpiece with a rich history full of competitive spirit and racing prowess. 910-018 represents a significant chapter in Porsche's racing story. It’s journey from the track to becoming a valued collector's item mirrors the resilience and enduring appeal of the Porsche 910 series.
Today, Prototypes like 018 are not just reminders of racing triumphs but are also coveted for their engineering excellence and historical significance.
