Ferrari 512s or Porsche 917k?

Discussion in '1970 Ferrari 512 S' started by F U C K, Aug 28, 2002.

  1. If you had to choose one which would it be? Personally, it's a tough decision for me but I believe I would take the Ferrari.

    For me also it would be a very hard decision...
    They both attract me very much...
     
  3. Re: Ferrari 512s or Porsche 917k?

    Yeah. Both companies had 25 made of each so they could pass regulations and be direct rivals for one another. The Porsche won Le Mans in 1970 and had a Daytona win. The Ferrari also had a Daytona win in 1971 I believe. Today the 917k is valued at $2,000,000 to $3,500,000 dollars with the Ferrari not far behind.......but you'll see a lot more Porsche 917k's at vintage races than Ferrari 512Ms.

    Ferrari. This is one amazing car.
     
  5. The Porsche may be faster/more successful, but I'd still take the Ferrari. This is the most beautiful racecar ever (except maybe the Ferrari 330 P4), and I'm sure the scream of that V-12 beats the turbo-whine of the 917's flat six...
     
  6. Not to nitpick, but the fearsome 917K had a V12. As for the answer to the question, I'll say "yes".
     
  7. I'd take the 917K, personally.
