For us, these cars are all about driving them and experiencing them in the environment for which they were conceived. Here at Historika we have a particular soft spot for the 904 as we have spent the last 3 years rebuilding our own genuine factory built car with a view to completion in the Summer of 2021.
The lengths we have gone to ensure that our own original car has been rebuilt to exacting factory specifications have been exhausting. We have invested a great deal in the remanufacture of parts that have been obsolete for many years and reverse engineered all components so that when we get behind the wheel of our car on track later this year, hopefully all the hard work will be amply rewarded and we can drive the car in a manner which was intended!
Naturally our 40 years of expertise with Porsche competition flat six engines will be applied to the power plant of our own 904, although today, early 4 cam engine options are now also an option, due to significant tooling investment.
This "labour of love" has been the product of significant expenditure and tooling and we are looking to capitalise on our hard won 904 expertise by offering a highly limited production run of cars built to FIA Appendix K specification for racing. The cars will be built without compromise and will present new owners with an opportunity to buy a turn key racecar which can also be used on the road, at a price which compares favourably to the handful of 904's which are periodically available on the market today, many of which bearing "interesting" histories which make them very difficult to value!
