I recall many years ago an article in a motorsport magazine quoting a US driver in the Porsche factory team in the late 1960s telling the story of Ferry Porsche turning up to a track meeting in Germany in a 180hp 1965/66 Corsa. The driver had a foreign sounding name I seem to recall but was from US. He thought the Porsche guys were having a joke with him, but they informed him that Porsche was doing work on the development of the late series and part of the deal was that Chevy gave him a new Corsa each year. It was his daily driver and was a bit of a novelty because it was years before Porsche brought out their own turbo. It seemed to be authentic as it was quoting the US well known driver at the time.
