The first Porsche 917, from 1969, is being restored to its original condition using state-of-the-art technology and old-fashioned elbow grease. On the evening of 10 March 1969, mere months after Hans Mezger's initial ideas and design sketches, the first Porsche 917 with chassis number 001 is completed - with just two days to go before the official press event showcasing the new Porsche Group 4 sports cars at the Geneva Auto Show, scheduled for 3 p.m. on 12 March 1969. Not long afterwards, on 21 April 1969, the 25 units necessary to meet regulations are finally completed; the 917 receives homologation certification from the official motorsport bodies, and is thereby approved for racing.
