Welcome to Midnight Oil, where we keep you awake with pornographic images of cars that are sure to haunt your dreams.

Nobody makes race cars like Porsche makes race cars. And the 909 is one of the all-time greats. Sleek and beautiful, it ran at Le Mans in the late 1960s, and well, just look at it.


But here, we're looking at the details. Kevin McCauley took this shot at the Monterey Historics last August. Gives me goosebumps just looking at it.

Good luck falling asleep now.

Here's a link to a larger version of it, because I like you guys.

UPDATE: This is apparently a 908, not a 907. Thanks to Porsche Pedant (that's his new, official nickname) Autolegend86 for noting it in the comments.

If you have a picture that you own the rights to and would like it featured for a future Midnight Oil, shoot an email to travis at jalopnik dot com with the subject "Midnight Oil."
