Porsche 906 E Carrera 6 – Specifications & Performance
Porsche 906 E Specifications
The technology in racing during the mid 60s was shifting from carburetors to fuel injection. Porsche began experimenting and after a lot of development had developed a competitive system. The Bosch injection system proved to be the most reliable and produced the best results. Though the performance did not increase, it did provide superior throttle response over the Weber carburetors, and it was easier to tune. To compliment the new engine, a new body was created which reduced drag levels. Porsche dubbed the resulting car, with its new engine and body work, the 906E, with the ‘E’ representing ‘Einspritzung, or injection.
