Thanks for posting, I’m a fan of Chris Harris and the car is incredible. I particularly enjoyed the lingering detail shots toward the end of the movie.

Otto Mathé converted the car from LHD to RHD

I sat in the car and talked to Otto at Solitude in the early 90s and it was RHD then

There is no mention of who converted it back to its LHD configuration - a strange omission ?

I see that Porsche does not consider the 64 to be a Porsche. It forcefully says that the first Porsche is the Roadster we all know.
