Foto Quelle RSR and the Secret Compound

Deep inside Navajo County Arizona - and accessible only by a long gravel road - lies the secret compound of R Gruppe member Jim Edwards.  We stopped by to say hi on our way to California a couple of years back.  Jim's collection of vintage Porsches is nearly indescribable.  There's the last 935 ever made (the CocaCola sponsored car), the first 934, there's RSRs and RSs, Porsche Design's one-of-a-kind gravity racers, there's a McLaren road car, the famous Ol' Yellar, a parts stash that would make Weissach jealous and that doesn't even scratch the surface!

So this month's Excellence has a great article on one of the stars of Jim's collection - the 1974 Foto Quelle Carrera RSR.  This car - originally part of the Max Moritz Rennteam - was also featured in the February 1975 issue of the German magazin, Sport Auto. I scanned it and included it here.
