    A Truly Historic Porsche Type 64 Is Being Auctioned off at Monterey
    An extra-rare 1939 Porsche Type 64 will soon be up for sale at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction (August 15 – 17). Only three examples of the Type 64 were built between 1939 – 1940 for the Berlin-Rome endurance race, but due to World War II, were never fully realized. Existing even before the Gmünd-built 356 chassis, the Type 64 was designed after the KdF-Wagen, but was built to be lighter, more aerodynamic, faster, and with techniques borrowed from the aviation department — just look at those aluminium alloy panels.
