Porsche has one hell of a racing pedigree, earned fair-and-square over the course of their nearly-100-year history. And while it’s a fairly simple prospect to get behind the wheel of one of their many excellent vehicles, hitting the asphalt in one of their bonafide, championship-level cars is a bit trickier. And that makes this auction-ready 1970 Porsche 914/6 GT an enticing prospect.

One of just 16 built for customers, this particular race car was delivered brand-new to Canadian driver and journalist Jacques Duval. The following year, this exciting factory-built speeder took 1st in class at the 24 Hours of Daytona. It also took 4th at that year’s 12 Hours of Sebring. Since then, it’s actually changed hands a whopping six times — however, it’s still in spectacular condition. In fact, it’s such a superb example, it’s expected to go for over $1,000,000 when it hits Gooding & Company’s auction block in Scottsdale at the end of January.
