904 Carrera GTS

1964 - 1965
United States

After having withdrawn from Formula One at the end of the 1962 season, Porsche focused again on sportscar racing. The 904 debuted late in 1963, for the 1964 racing season,[1] as a successor to the 718, which had been introduced in 1957. Porsche designed the GTS variant to compete in the FIA-GT class at various international racing events. The street-legal version debuted in 1964 in order to comply with group 3 appendix J[2] homologation regulations requiring a certain number of road-going variants be sold by the factory. Porsche produced one-hundred and six 904s at four or five a day[3] with a list price of US$7245 (FOB Stuttgart).[4] Orders far exceeded the one hundred car requirement to satisfy homologation rules and more cars could have been sold.[3] The 904 marked the beginning of a series of sportscars that culminated in the dominant 917.
