Porsche 908/01 K Coupé
Premiere: May 19, 1968, Nürburgring 1000 km
The Porsche 908/01 K Coupé was basically a 907 K with the new 3-litre boxer-8 engine (in 907 2.0 and 2.2 B8 engines were used). “K” in the designation stands for Kurz which is “short” in German, meaning the car had short-tail body compared to the LH (“langheck”, long-tail). Although 907 and 908 were similar, there was a visual difference - the 907 had symmetrical front openings and the 908/01 K had asymmetrical.
While the 908/01 LH had debuted on April 7, 1968 at the Le Mans test day, the 908/01 K debuted 6 weeks later on May 19 at Nürburgring 1000 km race and won it outright. The victorious drivers were Jo Siffert and Vic Elford.
