Throwback Thursday-1971 #22 Porsche 917K

Dr. Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep 1971 #22 Porsche 917K

The newer version of the Porsche 917K has two large fins on the rear, which help with aerodynamics, and unintentionally made the car look better as a result. Add in the Martini paint scheme which has looked great on every car it has ever been painted on, and you have an amazing looking car. I also like how the door numbers fit the scheme well, and aren’t printed on circles. This is a car that’s worth an A.
