Porsche EBS Prototype

Factory 2.8 RSR engine

The EBS Porsche Spyder was built in 1972 as a prototype at the Porsche works for the Interserie-European Can Am series (Under 3 litre small block division) and also for hillclimbs for the Max Moritz Team. Eberhard Braun designed and built the car which has a remarkable resemblance to the 917/10 series, just on a smaller scale. It is built on a tube frame chassis (URD Chassis), has a fibreglass body, weights around 700kg and is powered by a genuine factory 2.8 RSR engine (ex Max Moritz Le Mans car 73) coupled to a Hewland FG400 5 speed gearbox.

The car was raced by prominent European racer like Max Moritz and driven by Hubert Schmidt at the famous Nurburgring in 1976 as well as Zolder, Salzburgring and Hockenheim. It was then sold in 1980 and went to the US where it raced in Historic Can Am races, SCCA, SVRA and HSR meetings. It was owned by a few other Americans until an Australian purchased it and bought it back to Australia where its full restoration was achieved. The car is now back in Europe and represents a rare opportunity to own a prototype motorized by the powerful 2.8 RSR.
