John Wiley’s front view of a customer car engine, circa 1997, as removed from a working race car. All the fiddly bits are present or at least were once attached. Thanks for putting this one up, John!

One pretty good photo from my set of the Rohr 1996 car:

Unfortunately, since this is a street version, the intake is slightly different, possibly 959 derived, so there’s a single throttle body with 6 runners to the cylinders, rather than 6 individual throttle butterflys. Still…
A nice site from the Netherlands illustrating 911 GT1 colors from their various owners and appearances. There’s some really cool stuff here, not just the shark marking, though obviously that’s a keeper in my favorite colors of gray and white… http://www.lemans-models.nl/MERKEN/porsche_GT1.htm
