Back in 1963, Porsche first presented the 901 as a show car at the IAA, unveiling a production-ready vehicle one year later. But because of a trademark dispute, they had to rename the coupé to the 911, with only a small handful of vehicles manufactured as the Porsche 901.

For 50 years, the Porsche factory collection lacked one of these gems, searching high and low for a way to add one to their showcase. Eventually, in 2014, they were led to a barn find 901 model and spent the next three years transforming the rare and historic ride from pricey rust bucket to the piece of art it is today.
