Porsche 908/3 Gulf - Fly-bys, downshifts and revving

Engine: Boxer-8 / 2997 cc / 182.9 cu in Power: 350 bhp / 257 kW @ 8400 rpm Torque: 365 Nm / 269 ft lbs @ 6600 rpm Weight: 545 kg / 1,202 lbs Top Speed: 275 km/h / 171 mph [quote: Ultimatecarpage] In its debut year of 1970, the Porsche 908/3 scored victories in the two races it was designed for; the Targa Florio and the Nürburgring 1000 km races. Unfortunately these fine results were left in the dust, behind the racing headlines that Porsche finally won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. In the next season the 908/3 faced stiff competition from Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. Porsche was clearly down on power, but the 908/3's exceptional low weight meant it could stay on pace with its heavier competitors. At the Targa Florio, the entered 908/3s suffered from bad luck, leaving an easy victory for one of the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/3s. Porsche bounced back with a 1-2-3 finish on the Nürburgring after the more powerful Ferraris and Alfa Romeos had failed under pressure. Again the 917's results pushed the Porsche 908/3's victories into the margins of the history books. Following a rule change, Porsche withdrew from the World Championship at the end of the year.
