This poster shows the model that can be seen at the Porsche Museum and is dated as 1970 with the driver names of Jo Siffert and Derek Bell on the side. However, the bilateral tail fins were actually only added for 1971.
A sports prototype, it was designed to be fast rather than pretty, but manages to achieve both.
The sky blue and orange palette denotes the Gulf Oil livery and is popular with motorsport fans after appearing in the racing film Le Mans being driven by Steve McQueen.
