CHRIS HARRIS DRIVES THE FIRST EVER PORSCHE – THE TYPE 64

Ten years before the 356, Mr Ferdinand Porsche created the Type 64, a race car prototype, and Chris Harris gets to drive it.

In 1939, Ferdinand Porsche decided to create a racing car based on the VW Beetle. Using a 1.0-litre engine and some aircraft technology, he created a vehicle that could do over 80mph which, for the time, was astounding.

This was the start of the biggest sportscar manufacturer in the world before World War Two even started, and Chris Harris is captivated. In this episode, he gives us the incredible history of the Porsche Type 64, as well as his driving impressions.

So steeped in history, in fact, that this car is worth 10 million dollars. When you look closely and really, deeply consider the impact it's had on the world of motoring, you can see why...
