Porsche 906 Carrera 6

Rennwagen, 1966


  • Chassis 104 is a perfect reconstruction
  • Valid FIA HTP
  • Perfect for period racing (Eg Le Mans Classic)

Chassis 104: 

A notable Porsche 906 model with a unique history. Imported to the USA in 1966 by Otto Zipper, owner of Precision Motor Cars in Beverly Hills, California, it was later repainted silver and raced by legendary driver Ken Miles.

After being sold and actively raced in Kansas, it returned to California in 1968 under Vasek Polak’s ownership. Over the years, it changed hands several times until it was acquired by Dennis Aase and later restored by collector Tom Kobayashi in California.

In 2003, it participated in the Tour Auto in France but suffered a crash that led to a complete reconstruction supervised by Porsche expert mechanic and manufacturer Thierry Reynaud.

Now bearing the chassis number 104 (bis), the car, equipped with a correct period Porsche 2.0L Flat six-cylinder engine and a valid FIA HTP, is eligible for historic races, including the Le Mans Classic.

The current owner, having held the car until now, has decided to sell it through Boutsen Classic Cars, Monaco due to a lack of time to drive it.

The vehicle in detail

Porsche 906 history: 
The Porsche 906, or Carrera 6, introduced in 1966, marked a crucial period for Porsche’s racing evolution. Designed for endurance racing, it succeeded the 904 Carrera GTS and notably became the first Porsche to fully utilize lightweight materials, featuring a tubular steel chassis and a Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) body. This innovative use of materials significantly reduced the car’s weight, enhancing its speed and handling. A standout moment in its history was the 906’s victory in the 1966 Targa Florio, where its agility and reliability triumphed over rivals with larger engines. Despite a short production run of about 50 units, the 906 left a lasting impact on the racing world, influencing Porsche’s future endeavors and setting a standard for lightweight design and performance excellence.

This example – Chassis 104: 
This particular model is one of the three 906 which was imported to the USA in 1966 by Otto Zipper, the owner of Precision Motor Cars in Beverly Hills, California.
The car was repainted in silver shortly after arriving in the land of Uncle Sam, where it was raced by legendary driver Ken Miles (celebrated in the recent Ford Vs. Ferrari blockbuster). It was then sold to Jack Hinkle in Kansas, where the car was actively raced.

In 1968, the car made its way back to California under the ownership of Vasek Polak, another US Porsche dealer. The car was then resold several times in the USA before being acquired by Dennis Aase who owned it for fifteen years before reselling it to Tom Kobayashi, a collector located in California, who restored it completely.

In 2003, Jean Claude Pichon and André Cuzeron took part in the 2003 Tour Auto in France. The pair unfortunately crashed during a circuit race of the Tour, where the car burnt entirely, but luckily its crew escaped unharmed.

The car was completely reconstructed under the supervision of famous Porsche Mechanic and manufacturer Thierry Reynaud. It now uses the chassis number 104 (bis) as a reconstruction of Chassis 104.

It was then sold to its current owner who has held the car until today, not finding the time to drive it enough, he has chosen to sell with Boutsen Classic Cars.
The car is equipped with a correct period Porsche 2.0L Flat six cylinders engine and comes with a valid FIA HTP, making it eligible for any historic race such as the famous Le Mans Classic.
