RSK (Type 718)


via :

Porsche Type 718 RSK
The further development of the 550 with much nicer lines but the same form factor was the Type 718 RSK which first appeared in 1957. It had the same wheelbase as the 550A but a lower body. The earliest versions had vertical fins on the rear fenders.

- Chassis 718-005
- First in class 3rd overall, driven by Behra/Herrmann at the 1957 Le Mans.
- This car was originally fitted with fins.

Models still racing:

- The rear suspension was coil over dual action Koni shocks.
- Tubular steel frame with aluminum body skins.
