Summary

•Charts the resurrection and restoration of the 1972 Le Mans winner, the Porsche 911 2.5 S/T

In 1972, this Porsche 911 2.5 S/T, with chassis number 911 230 0538, was at the World Sportscar Championship, and became class winner at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The team, Michael 'Mike' Keyser and Jürgen Barth, participated in the long-distance race world championship in the USA, the 6 hours of Daytona, then the 12 hours of Sebring, followed by the Targa Florio and the 1000-kilometre race at the Nürburgring. Highlight of the season was the 24 Hours of Le Mans. More races followed. At the Targa Florio their car was even used as a dolly - that is, with cameras in the front and back, to shoot scenes for the film The Speed Merchants.

After an intensive search in the USA, the Porsche 911 2.5 S/T from 1972 was found and fully restored to the minutest detail. A photo, that was taken several years ago, no longer matches reality. Back then, the shape of the historic 911 was correctly described as 'scrap heap'. In about two and a half years, several Porsche experts accomplished a magnificent masterpiece - finally presenting the 911 from San Francisco in historic shape.
