Post THE ELVA-PORSCHE NOW FEATURES IN TWO MAGAZINES
I have mentioned elsewhere on this Forum that a well researched and presented feature article appeared in the U.S. magazine "Excellence" issue 233 Dec 2015, entitled 'The Elva-Porsche Saga' which of course details the co-operation between Elva Cars and Porsche in the early 1960's.
The story is told by Karl Ludvigsen in co-operation with Porsche.

Here is PDF file of the article for you to download and enjoy.

Would it not be appropriate for a modern day E-P as a road/track car?
Sadly Porsche has become too big and distant to consider such a renewal of that unique marriage, although the 19 cars built by ELVA are considered as members of the Porsche family.
Who knows ... just sometimes dreams do come true! ;)

Post ELVA-PORSCHE FEATURES IN TWO PORSCHE MAGAZINES
My earlier post relates to the article entitled "The ELVA-PORSCHE SAGA" published in a U.S. Magazine, and we now have a specific and rare example of the ELVA-PORSCHE featured and examined in the UK magazine "GTPorsche".
The car which is owned by Clive Winterstein, has been stunningly restored and shows the original vertical fan installation of the 4-cam twin ignition Porsche power unit. The car chassis number is 70/067.
Later installations were modified by having a horizontal cooling fan thus lowering the line of the rear deck.

A link to the PDF file to download and read the article is also attached, after the images below..
