    Known Chronological History:

    April 1957 Gearbox completed and fitted with special gear ratios "B A A A.”
    May 2nd 1957 Officially recorded completion date by Porsche and sale date by official Porsche agency; Hülpert & Co., Dortmund, Germany.
    Warranty initiated for new owner, Kurt Röttger of Hagen, Germany.
    May 25th, 1957 Kurt Röttger is granted an official Porsche Agency initially in Hagen and later Iserlohn, Germany. The company was incorporate as Kurt Röttger GmbH & Co. KG
    Automobiles. (The company remained in business for many, many years until it closed in 2003 when it was broken up after going into receivership.)
    July, 1957 to June 1958 Warranty work completed by Kurt Röttger GmbH & Co. KG Automobiles.
    November 2nd, 1957 Warranty officially expires.
    June 6th, 1958 Final warranty work completed at Kurt Röttger GmbH & Co. KG Automobiles. (26,779 kilometers recorded at this time.)
    September 22nd, 1958 Final warranty payment received, official Porsche internal records end on this date.
    1958-1968 Unknown at this time but may have then been shipped to Sweden and possibly used in night races, rallies, hill climbs and ice racing.
    1968/1969 A subsequent German or Scandinavian owner brought the car to the States and was driving across country and had an engine failure when motor threw a rod.
    The vehicle was traded on the spot at East Side Motors on Admiral Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
    It was traded for a Ford Falcon and the former owner continued on his way to California. At the time it was traded in, the car was a faded metallic green.
    The interior was still the original two-tone green cloth and vinyl. Wheels were still chrome knock-offs.
    It remained at East Side Motors for sometime before it was acquire by George Starch, owner of Fame Automotive an import car parts speciality store in Tulsa.
    Starch had several interesting machines including a Lotus 11. He stored the car but did little with it.
    Late 1968 Purchased by Starch's friend and noted Porsche racer and enthusiast, Howard De Haven also of Tulsa, Oklahoma for $1,500. De Haven was the owner of Rennsport Werkstatt Ltd.
    De Haven and his Partner, Charles W. Grimes also had a 906, 908 and an original 914/6GT that they bought new. At the time of purchase it came with two mostly complete Type 547 "Four-Cam" engines.
    De Haven had the car delivered to German Motors in Tulsa where according to him he began working on evenings and weekends to disassemble the car for restoration.
    It was stripped to bare metal by hand, top to bottom, front to back. In a recent letter, De Haven still recalls how incredibly rust and totally accident free the Porsche was after it was completely stripped.
    De Haven restored the car returning it to the original yellow but changed the interior to black. He sent the damaged engines and parts to Jim Wellington, noted four-cam expert in California.
    De Haven also sent another early four-cam engine case, believed now to be engine number P90514. De Haven believes this engine may have belonged to an engineless Carrera Speedster
    that had been in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That engine originally belonged to a 1956 Carrera Speedster, s/n 80995 which was the fourth Carrera Speedster built.
    January 1st, 1977 Jim Wellington rebuilt the lower end engine using engine case, s/n "P90514" with internal number "110" and case numbers "48”.
    Wellington shipped the engine back to De Haven and he brought it to Al Larger who ran Bill Randell's Autohouse in Denver. Lager assisted with completing the engine with heads and parts provided by Vasek Polak.
    De Haven removed the original chrome knock-off wheels and installed new chrome KPZ wheels and hub caps sourced by Stoddards. De Haven then fitted the knock-off wheels to his Speedster.
    1978/79 Sold by De Haven to Ralf Lackner, owner of J. Rambo Cabinets in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Lackner drove the car very rarely and then sold it in the famous Leake Tulsa, Oklahoma auction.
    1980 Purchased from the Leake Auction by French expatriate, Jon Tipenyay (sic). The new owner was a collector in the Monterey, California area that had imported several vehicles including a Ferrari 275 GTB from France.
    Later Purchased by Pratt Development Corp in Costa Mesa, California possibly from one of the early Rick Cole auctions.
