Porsche RSK

This car competed in the 'Classic Car' Sports Car Race at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1994.
This is Wessel von Loringhoven's 1959 Porsche 718 RSK.
Better known as just a Porsche RSK, it was a development of the Porsche 550A and because of the short wheelbase was named the RennSportKurz, or RSK.
Some of the RSKs were converted to single-seat Formula 2 Porsche 718s, which in 1961 became Formula 1 cars - later superseded by the Porsche 804.
