PORSCHE JUNIOR L108

The Porsche 108 was the smallest and most attractive of four tractors produced by Porsche from 1956 to 1963. The tractors were produced at the old Zeppelin factory in Friedrichs-hafen-Manzell, Germany. The appeal of the Porsche-built tractors can be attributed to much more than just their stunning looks as they were designed with a fluid coupling to connect the engine to a six-speed transmission – a distinctive feature which offered the driver smooth shifting. In 1960, Porsche introduced a new Bosch hydraulic lifting system, a significantly improved design when compared to the earlier 1956-'59 tractors. By 1963, production of Porsche tractors had ceased. Their compact styling and Porsche heritage have made restored Juniors a popular collectible item among Porsche car owners and vintage tractor collectors.

THE TRACTOR OFFERED

In the early 1930s Ferdinand Porsche started design work on the "people's tractor" right along with the design work of the "people's car". Eventually, both designs materialized into historic products that are still enjoyed by enthusiasts today.

This Porsche presents a very rare opportunity to acquire the charming agricultural cousin of the 356, which is seldom seen, especially here in the United States. This example has benefitted from a dedicated owner who restored the tractor to its current impressive condition. When taking into consideration that this is made for a more rural purpose, it is indeed a well-engineered machine with plenty of power and reliability. The single-cylinder Diesel engine has plenty of torque to do active duty in the field, but would also be great fun to drive around the property.

This little Porsche appears very correct and is finished in the traditional red, with the correct, off-white finish on the wheels and seat. The data plate, stampings, and emblems all appear to be in place. The Junior 108 is arguably one of the most attractive tractors produced and is sure to draw a crowd of smiles wherever it goes. A cute and appropriate addition to any collection, this Junior 108 is a great way to add a unique piece of Porsche history to your stable.
