Last week I had the change to test-drive the Porsche 908/3 of NSR.

I was lucky to drive the car in the right environment: the Targa Florio slot car track of Marc Stouten. You have noticed more pictures of this beautiful track on this website.

This version of the Porsche 908/3 is the winning car of the 1.000 km Nürburgring 1970 with Vic Elford and Kurd Ahrens.

The brand new #15 car came straight out of the box for this photo session. This car participated in the same race in Germany.

The white and the yellow colored cars are perfect for slot car racing.

This slot car has no secrets for us as it is equipped with the standard features. The Porsche comes in sidewinder setup. The motor is Shark 20k which has 20000 rpm @ 12 Volts 164 gr/cm.

What I do not like of this car are the looks of the backside. You notice the red chassis. NSR could have done a better job.

In the end I concluded after driving many laps with this NSR that it is a nice car, easy to handle, but not a winner. I think that the Porsche 917 or GT40 of NSR can easily beat this model. But, this one you need to have in your collection if you understand and love the history of racing.
