Steve McQueen’s Porsche 908
As the story goes, McQueen purchased the Porsche specifically to compete at Sebring and teamed up with Formula One driver Peter Revson. The Sebring 12-Hours was a full factory contended points-earning race and the amateur McQueen/Revson team and their private car seemingly had no chance against the factory giants Ferrari, Ford and Porsche teams. Yet with only 25 laps remaining they were in the lead. This was an incredible upset for the big professional teams so Ferrari ordered Andretti to “win the race at all costs.” Although the 5-litre Ferrari 512S was far more powerful than the 3-litre Porsche, Andretti couldn’t pass until the second to last lap, winning by only 23 seconds! More amazingly, Steve had raced with a broken foot still in a cast, duct taped to keep it from coming apart.
