Racing. The ultimate proof. Porsche.

Racing. The ultimate proof. Porsche. No proving ground can duplicate the ele-ments which make competition the final test of a car's performance. The rivalry of premier drivers, the unexpected moments, the con-stant stress on the entire machine, and the incentive to win are present only in racing. Research, not publicity, has been the prime objective of Porsche's competition program since the firm's founding. Win or lose, Porsche races to prove out engineer-ing and design concepts under the toughest of all possible conditions. Take one example. The Sportomatic semi-automatic transmission was installed in a Porsche 911 and raced in the Marathon de la Route, 84 hours over the demanding Nur-burg ring course. It met the test. The car won. Porsche prototype racers, last year, won the Daytona 24-hour; Sebring 12-hour; Tar-ga Florio; Nurburgring 1,000 kilometer and other major races. The earlier developments perfected in these unique cars brought vic-tory to virtually stock Porsche sedans in the Trans-American championship and to hun-dreds of amateur owner-drivers who race their own Porsches. Not all Porsches are raced, of course. But the Porsche you drive is raceworthy; able to take the punishment of high speed racing. Engine, brakes, suspension, electrical sys-tem—the total design—are based on race-bred research and built to racing standards. Can a car be built too good for everyday use? Porsche doesn't think so. If you're serious about your driving, you can have a lot of fun driving a Porsche, the car that's good enough to race. Prices start at about $5,100, East Coast P.O.E.
