One of two naturally aspirated 917/10s built in the summer of 1971, chassis 002 was raced for the 'Porsche Audi' works team in that year's Can-Am championship. Sporting a very striking STP livery, the car was placed in the top five in all six rounds with two second place finishes as the best results. The successful car was subsequently sold to Willi Kauhsen, who fielded the car in the European Interserie championship. He won the second round and added several more podium finishes to the chassis' tally. Halfway through the year, a turbocharged engine was fitted to improve performance.
