Brutus the 916 is on its way to Paris in February to be auctioned at the retro automobile extravaganza. Some lucky person will be the new owner. Here are a few facts about the car from its owner

The folowing are some important dates of history for the documentation of Brutus :

Original service date per Kraftfahrzeugbrief is February 11. 1971 with registration license LEO ZC1
Brutus was owned by Porsche and driven by Corina Piesch until the car was sold on April 29, 1974 to
Colonel Robert E. Hartvigsen for 27,500 DM
Brutus remained in Germany with Colonel Hartvigsen and was returned to the Porsche factory in late 1977 for a engine and transmission rebuild together with suspension rebuild and other repairs . An 5 page Porsche factory invoice dated January 19, 1978 outlines the factory rebuild at a total cost of 12,649 DM.
It is believed that in April 1978 Brutus was exported by the Colonel( who had been discharged from the military with the completion of his duty ) to America .
The importation and registration documentation would indicate that on June 23 1978 application was submitted for importation approval to the Department of Transportation in Washington DC USA. The approval was granted and the first American registration was granted in October 1978.
Brutus remained with the Colonel until his passing and was then stored for many years before being purchased and completely restored by the current owner.
Brutus has been displayed at
Amelia Island Concours
Porsche Noth America Headquarters Atlanta Ga
Petersen Museum Special Porsche Collection Los Angeles , California

Well it is February 4th and we are just about to leave for the Brutus the 916 auction in Paris. Here is a link if you want to follow the auction:

https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/1971...utus-2DC4A7FAD2

Brutus will probably bring the highest sale price of any 914 in history, and will bode well for the value of all of our 914s and establish their place in the international stage. Wish the car luck.
I will be away from my phone for tech advice for ten days buy you can certainly e mail me if you need a question answered. George Hussey
