1972 Porsche 914 2.0-liter Ritchie Ginther Race Car for Sale
Richie Ginther was an innovator and a “Maverick”, not afraid to defy convention. He wanted to make race cars his way. Accordingly, the car that pays tribute to Richie Ginther must also reflect the man and his methods.
In 1972, Jo Hoppen, the director of Motorsports for VW and Porsche | Audi, approached Richie Ginther (Former Formula One driver and mechanic, sports car racer, and Carrera Pan America winner) to prepare a 914 for the 1972 American Road Race Championship, and to develop a kit to help club racers build a competitive car.
Ginther, and his ace mechanic Harold Broughton, built three cars taking their knowledge from their C production 914-6’s raced by Elliott Forbes Robinson and Alan Johnson. As a result of the project Elliott Forbes-Robinson got his first paid ride of his hall of fame career.
EFR won almost all the races entered to qualify for the run-offs 7 wins, 8 poles, 5 track records, and 1 DNF leading all there races he entered. He won or lead overall in many races against AP, BP, CP, and Sports Racers in events the car raced in.
