History at a glance

The car underwent updates for the 2008 season and retained its blue and white livery. It achieved class podiums at races like the 12 Hours of Sebring and the St. Petersburg Grand Prix. During the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park, 705 was involved in an incident and had to be rebuilt within a day with the help of Porsche engineers. The car finished the season without further issues, contributing to Dyson Racing’s 3rd place in the LMP2 team championship and Porsche’s second consecutive Manufacturer’s Championship.

After the 2008 season, chassis No. 9R6-705 was returned to Porsche in Germany and later became a training vehicle for the Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 program. In 2013, it was purchased by its current owner, who embarked on a comprehensive restoration at Virtuoso Performance in California. The car was disassembled, and each component was inspected, replaced if necessary, and restored to its original condition. The restoration cost over $600,000 and was completed in two years.

Since the restoration, the car has participated in events such as the Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI in 2018, where it performed admirably. It underwent further systems checks and was prepared for circuit use, running test laps in July 2023. The car has detailed documentation, including images of the restoration process, transponder records, gearing records, setup sheets, and more.
