Only one specimen of the Porsche 917/20 Coupé exists. It is a blend of a short-tail and long-tail version – and a truly exciting sight. The Porsche Design Studio came up with a pink paint finish and divided up components visually like a butcher’s diagram. No wonder this racing car soon earned the nickname “Pink Pig”. It remains one of the most famous Porsches, even though it broke down at Le Mans.
