Here is a replica I saw for sale at the Mid-Ohio vintage races in 2007...with a license plate on it. I am no expert, but it appeared to be a pretty nice replica. I believe it had a flat-6 in it.

yeah, he seems to make the rounds at vintage races having seen it myself for a couple years. The car I like, the plastic fake 12 cylinder flat fan...not so much through the window.

RCR is making a true accurate (therefore if over 6 foot need not apply) 917 as roller only and it has been altered to be turbo 6 powered. I'm sure for enough money it could be converted to 12 cyl power. Quite impressive!

I recall a photo (rear view) & very short story in Car and Driver some years ago. It spoke of a unique street-legalized 917 owned by an innkeeper in the Munich area.

A built 3.8 liter, I believe. The bigger sixes with sport pipes (even my 3.2) will make your hair stand on end between 5500 and 7000. Back in 1971 I got to hear Jo Siffert drive a 917 in anger. The twelves are something else again.

Actually it is a original 917-10 CanAm shell...signed by the guy who raced it back in the day.....the mechanicals are home built using Porsche parts....I believe it's powered by a 3.0L

It's set up for the street (sits high) or else the crappy roads here would have destroyed the fiberglass.

917-10

gwn is right. I had it at Road America in 1993. George Folmer was signing tee shirts for flaggers at the Saturday evening banquet. I took off the driver's door, and stood in line. He and I shared a bit of conversation as he put his name across the door in Sharpie; he had seen it outside the tech barn, where I had been doing tech inspections that week on the vintage racecars. It weighs about 1150 pounds wet. Paul Frere and Porsche say that it generates 2000 pounds of downforce at 100 mph. It has great braking on the track!
