This, people of the Internet, is genesis. What’s considered by many to be the very first and “most historically significant” Porsche - the third of three and sole surviving Type 64. It’s going up for auction in August in Monterey, where it will sell for untold millions.
Its story begins in the 1930s, with a 1,500km race from Berlin to Rome that never took place. Set for September 1939, this race would be used to promote first Germany’s then-new autobahn network and second, something called the ‘KdF Wagen’ or ‘Strength Through Joy Car’.
