Tuesday, 15th of January 2013 – meeting a masterpiece of a vintage Porsche racer

It was freezing outside, when german restoration authority Karl-Heinz Feustel opened up the doors of his workshop. Officially, he started his actual business 22 years ago. But in real life, he already reworked his very first Porsche 356 in the year of 1974. Can anybody cope with such a huge experience? Meanwhile, his son Florian Feustel is supporting this ace mechanic, learning all the secrets about GT racers and prototypes until the year of 1973 from his early childhood on.

Wraps were taken off a 1972 Porsche 911 S/R ("Sport- und Rennausführung), one of 21 ever built. Before its stunning ressurection, it was originally delivered to Switzerland. 41 years later, this purpose-built 2.5-litre-machine looks like being handed over from the factory at least yesterday. But that's not the case. Seemingly, the level of perfection stands alone, without any current example. A Masterpiece – that's the headline of a story, that propably changed everything.
