It shot to fame during its GT1 era grabbing the 24 Hours of Le Mans title in 1998 and its subsequent variations continue to rule over racing circuits worldwide.

Designed initially for endurance racing, the 917 proved its mettle winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Porsche’s first ever 12-cylinder beast with a horsepower upwards of 1100, it dominated the sports cars races over the world for an entire season chalking up great wins at Can-Am and World Endurance Championship. Classic film fans will also recognize it from Steve McQueen’s sports car racing tribute, Le Mans.
The 959 was originally designed as a Group B rally car. Grabbing the top spots in the 1986 and 1987 World Rally Group B Championship it did serve its purpose. Soon, however, it was withdrawn from the sport altogether due to high production and maintenance costs. A feat of technical achievement for Porsche, with features like lightweight composite body panels and tire pressure monitoring system, it was clearly years ahead of its time.
