“Race cars are meant to race, not rust.”
That’s the motto of Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA), which just announced it will expand from serving teams and owners of contemporary 911 race cars to providing a similar service to the large number of collectors of vintage Porsche racers in the US and Canada.
This is big news, as it means we’ll see ridiculously more beautiful cars like 917s and 962s on the racetrack.
PMNA has established a partnership with a new historic motorsports department that is currently being established within Porsche AG’s Motorsport Division in Weissach, Germany, providing expert restoration services to the Porsche Museum for many of the vintage competition cars the company owns, in addition to the ones on display.
When ready, a number of these cars will be entered in the increasingly popular vintage racing circuit around the world.
Take that, rust…
