Daytona, Sebring, Targa Florio, Nurburgring, Watkins Glen, Le Mans - these are just a few stops in the incomparable success story of the Porsche 911 ST 2.5 with the chassis number 911 230 0538, the pilots Jürgen Barth and Michael Keyser 1972 for GT class victory of the Sports Car World Championship drove. Later, the light yellow painted Porsche race car with the two arrow-shaped black stripes on the hood was for decades considered lost. It is only thanks to the tireless detective work of automotive journalist Thomas Imhof that the famous 911 was rediscovered in May 2013 in San Francisco. Completely corroded and in a miserable condition, it came into the hands of the Porsche Classics factory specialists and was restored with love and passion to the smallest detail true to the original. The extensive volume Porsche 911 ST 2.5 traces the history of this unique restoration object for the first time completely - from the birth of his active time with numerous racing successes to the spectacular resurrection.
