Some cars are destined for an easy life right from the start. Spike Feresten's Trans Am 1968 Porsche 911L is not one of those cars. Delivered to Sebring in 1968, this car was prepared for racing in just ten hours. The car went on to be featured in Porsche advertising thanks to a photo taken at its very first race. Originally raced by Fred Baker, son of the founders of Tonka trucks, this car was also raced by comedian Dickie Smothers in period before making its way to a used car lot in 1973.
Spike Feresten is a Certified Porsche Nut
Spike is perhaps best known for his work with Jerry Seinfeld and David Letterman as a writer, and now for his show Car Matchmaker on Esquire. Thanks largely to Jerry, Spike is a Porsche nut in his own right with an impressive collection of Porsches both new and old. To Spike this car offers a new experience; the ability to drive a race car on the street.
