RALLY - PORSCHE
What do you get when you want a fast car, but the freedom to go just about anywhere? Well first, let's back up and get some background so this all makes sense.
Porsche created a car destined to race and the Porsche 911's first-ever race was at the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally. Porsche's Public Relations committee wanted to showcase how much Porsche could do as a competitive motorsports team. Within a year of that race, Porsche began producing an available rally kit for the 911 that included Recaros, a roll bar system, and adjustable Koni dampers out of the box. They went on to produce factory rally cars until the early 1970s. Porsche ended up going on to win Monte Carlo three times in a row! With the wins, Porsche began to focus on campaigning in the East Africa Safari.
