For those of you with an interest in this car, Brutus the prototype 916 and Corina Porsche's personal car, it will be featured in the RM auction in Paris, Feb 2019

https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pa19

The 916 is the rarest production Porsche ever made, and this one the prototype of the prototype, fitted with a 2.9 RS engine, and personally owned by a member of the Porsche family. What else could make it more valuable?

A set of Avon CR6ZZs or CN36s...as that crowd craves originality and "period correct." (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

Seriously, this will be a very interesting result to watch.

The fact that they had unique serial numbers, were sold to retail buyers, and at least one came to the U S with the dot sticker in the door jamb also sold new to a retail buyer, in my opinion makes them production cars. HOWEVER, Brutus is indeed a prototype, as it started as a 914-6, had a 914-6 serial number, and was made into a 916 by the factory, and never sold new by Porsche

They are hoping that it sets a record for a 914 type car. If it does, it would be great for all of us, and the 914 would get some more world wide recognition. Look at this article:

Will you give a discount to the new owner on some of your stainless bumpers to replace those hideous ones currently on the car? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Louise Porsche was Ferry's sister, and she married Anton Piëch => Louise Piëch
These are the parents of Ferdinand Piëch (husband of Corina)

Check that right heat exchanger for the MFI warm air.
I saw one of those for sale in Europe years ago.
Look at how the factory did the clutch release arm for the 916 trans.
All cool stuff.
