    “The car has been designed, fabricated and assembled at this point and is fully drivable but requires thorough testing just like the original 917 needed.”

    Of course, that’s the only thing holding this creation back from garage-build-iniquity: the financial and intellectual capacity of a dedicated factory skunkworks whose members are perpetually petrified by their brilliant but sadistic boss into creating a genuine icon of racing history.

    Sounds easy.

    Surprisingly devoid of pertinent detail required for cogent purchasing decision.

    I’ve been aware of this project for some time and it’s really impressive. The frame looks like it’s a pretty exact replica of the original, right down to the pretend roll bar on the originals. I can’t imagine why he picked the ugliest 917/10 of all to replicate though.

      It was the easiest to build and I was at Watkins Glen in 1971 and saw the car up close.

    Actually after reading about this guy’s troubles with the engine if he were to configure it the way the original 912 engine was configured , and by the way that’s the actual model number of the 917 engine, he might be able to cere the vibration the way Porsche did. Porsche took the power off of the center of the crankshaft where a 32-tooth cog meshed with a 31-tooth cog in the power take-off shaft.effectively making the engine two six cylinder engines. Many straight 8 gran prix racing engines worked the same way.

    Gosh the engine coupling has to be a big part of this and not to be balanced what else is ready for a big boom of metal bits. Lot of work & effort 4 sure.

      I know the best way to do it now but I need someone else to actually get it done. After 10 years, I've had enough.
