Porsche 718 + 804

The 1961 season was the first year of the new 1.5 litre regulations in Formula 1. Out of all the German car manufacturers, only Porsche had both the determination and the ability to enter this new class. In the beginning, a Porsche Spyder was converted to a monoposto, called a Type 718, and that was relatively successful. Porsche’s next entrance was then and is still the only purely German-manufactured Formula One car ever made. The engine, the chassis and the brakes of the 804 were all Porsche-made and thus this car became the last real Silver Arrow.

The 1961 season was the first year of the new 1.5 litre regulations in Formula 1. Out of all the German car manufacturers, only Porsche had both the determination and the ability to enter this new class. In the beginning, a Porsche Spyder was converted to a monoposto, called a Type 718, and that was relatively successful. Porsche's next entrance was then and is still the only purely German-manufactured Formula One car ever made. The engine, the chassis and the brakes of the 804 were all Porsche-made and thus this car became the last real Silver Arrow. In the end, it was all a bit too much and too expensive for the small sports car manufacturer from Stuttgart, but it was still an exiting part of motorsport history. Wonderful and previously unseen photographs illustrate the memories of those people involved, while complete statistics give this book a comprehensive documentation of Porsche's amazing Formula One experiment. This book will surely fill a major gap in everybody's collection of Porsche books 1961 war das erste Jahr der 1,5-Liter-Formel1. In Deutschland gab es nur einen Hersteller, der willens und imstande war mitzumischen: Porsche. Zunächst reichte der Monoposto namens 718, der im Herzen noch ein Spyder war. Dann aber ging Porsche aufs Ganze und baute den bis heute letzten deutschen Formel-1-Renner aus einer Hand. Motor, Fahrgestell, Karosserie und Bremsen des 804 waren hausgemacht und ergaben einen echten Silberpfeil. Es war ein bisschen zu viel und ein bisschen zu teuer, aber es war ein überaus spannendes Stück Rennsportgeschichte. Wunderbare, bislang unveröffentlichte Bilder illustrieren die Erinnerungen jener, die dabei waren, und eine vollständige Statistik rundet die erste umfassende Dokumentation über Porsches Formel-1-Experiment ab. Dieses Werk schließt die letzte große Lücke in Ihrer Porsche-Sammlung.
