One August morning, Alexander Klein, Manager of the Classic Car Collection at the Porsche Museum received a phone call after 50-years of waiting.

Well not him solely, let me explain. 

For 50 years, the Porsche factory collection had lacked an early-model 901. All of the customer vehicles produced up to that point were manufactured as 901 vehicles but sold as 911 vehicles - due copyright dispute with Peugeot.

In 2014, while valuing a collection of items long forgotten about in a barn, a German TV (RTL2) crew working on an antiques and memorabilia programme stumbled across two 911 models, lying in a barn that dated back to the 1960s.

During that phone call – the team read out one of the car’s chassis numbers – 300 057. And as Alexander Klein said, “the penny dropped”. The TV crew had stumbled upon one of the earliest 911 vehicles ever produced, built in autumn 1964 as a Porsche 901. 

Eleven days later, two experts from the Porsche Museum went to the former farm in Brandenburg to inspect the two vehicles.
