I’m sorry but here’s another self-indulgent post. I spotted this wonderful period photo in a selection sent to me from the Porsche Archive, and had to share it.
It shows three Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR racecars competing hard in the ADAC Super-Sprint at the Nürburgring in 1975. I love the the quality of these old photographs – it was obviously shot on film and has then been scanned to create a digital version. It’s a bit grainy, contrasty and faded but that just adds to its appeal. People spend ages in Photoshop creating similar effects with a modern digital image (or seconds with an iPhone app!) so it’s good to see a genuine photograph.
And as for the RSR – it’s an important part of the Porsche 911 history, as it was the first to boast that super-wide look that we all now know.
Don’t you just love the Seventies? 🙂
