Nice Shot! 914 Rally Car

You don’t often think of the Porsche 914 as a rally car, but this shot from the 2010 Boucles de Spa rally in Belgium shows it’s versatility yet again. She may among the forgotten and unloved Porsches but I’m always impressed by them at vintage races, where they often participate in 4 or 5 different race groups—another sign of their range. This is, after all, a car that finished sixth overall at the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans, and deserves more props than it gets.

Fantastic bokeh in this shot.

Update: Guillaume T has been identified as the photographer. It’s an amazing shot, as are the rest of his photos from the event, which you can find on his Flickr. Thanks Guillaume!

    Porsche did send a pair of 914-6’s to the 1971 Monte Carlo Rally, with Bjorn Waldegard and Hanz Thorszelius finishing 3rd overall.
