Car Specs

The Porsche 906, also known as the Porsche Carrera 6, is a mid-engine sports car that was produced by Porsche from 1966 to 1967. It was designed to compete in the FIA Group 4 racing category, and was intended to replace the Porsche 904.

The Porsche 906 was powered by a 2.0-liter, air-cooled, six-cylinder engine that was capable of producing up to 210 horsepower. It was paired with a five-speed manual gearbox and had a top speed of around 170 mph. The car’s lightweight fiberglass body and aerodynamic design helped to improve its performance and handling.

The Porsche 906 was successful in both endurance and hill climb races, and won several major races including the Targa Florio and the 24 Hours of Daytona. It was also one of the first Porsche models to feature fuel injection, which provided better fuel efficiency and performance.

Overall, the Porsche 906 was a highly advanced and innovative sports car for its time. Its mid-engine layout and advanced engineering helped to set the standard for future Porsche racing cars, and it remains a popular choice among collectors and enthusiasts today. Only around 50 examples of the Porsche 906 were produced, making it a rare and valuable classic car.
