Porsche 917 at LeMans
The Porsche 917 is a racecar that gave Porsche its first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Powered by the Type 912 flat-12 engine of 4.5, 4.9, or 5 litres, the 917/30 variant was capable of a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0--124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, and a top speed of over 240 mph (390 km/h). There are at least nine variants of the 917. The original version had a medium-long tail with flippers, but had considerable handling problems at high speed because of poor bodywork aerodynamics. The Weyer-Gulf team then experimented with a shorter tail, and solved the aerodynamic and handling problems at testing sessions at the Österreichring, at the expense of some top speed. Porsche adopted these changes into the 917K, which dominated in the 1970 and 1971 World Sportscar Championships. In 1971, a variant of the 917K appeared with an altered tail and shark fins, which together reduced drag and maintained down force. These versions produced around 620 bhp. There were also streamlined versions for Le Mans (1970 917L and 1971 917LH) that were 20 mph faster in a straight line. In 1971 Jo Siffert raced an open-top 917PA Spyder (normally aspirated) in the 1971 CanAm series. There is also the "Pink Pig" aerodynamic research version (917/20), and the turbocharged 917/10 and 917/30 CanAm Spyders. Porsche 917s also raced in the European Interseries in various configurations. In the 1973 Can-Am series, the turbocharged version Porsche 917/30 developed 1,100 bhp (820 kW).[1] The 917 is one of the most iconic sports racing cars of all time, largely for its high speeds and high power outputs, and was made into a movie star by Steve McQueen in his 1971 film Le Mans.

A Le Mans' Hero: Porsche 917 - PURE RACECAR SOUNDS
When you think about racecars and Le Mans, you probably think about this: the Porsche 917. You used to see this monster in videogames but in my video you can finally see how it looks like in real world! I'm proud to host on my channel this proper Le Mans hero, a Porsche 917/k to be precise. The history of this incredible machine is way too long to be reported here so I'll link its Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_917 I'll then stick to what it's like to see such a monster in real world; it's just amazing: the car is lower than anything else, the sound it produces is nearly disturbing due to its loudness! I cannot imagine what was like to race at Le Mans or at the Nurburgring in one of these... Enjoy this piece of automotive history! Don't forget to subscribe to my channel! Carlo

Disappointed by the poor results of the 917 in 1969, Porsche decided to find a solution that could have improved the car for the next 1970 racing season. The answer was to "cut the tail" of the car. So they put in the name of the car the letter "K", in order to underline the distinctive feature of the new 917 ( K stay for "kurzheck" which means "short"). The car was been equipped with a new 4.9 liters flat-12 engine (the previous was 4.5 liters) which permitted the car to reach a power of about 600 - 620 bhp and a top speed of 390 km/h (240 mph). The car was able to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in both 1970 and in 1971. Link To My Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/19Bozzy92?feature=mhee THANKS FOR WATCHING AND SUBSCRIBE!!!

This Porsche 917-025 was built for Porsche AG as a long-tail version. In 1970 was converted into a 917 "K" (K stay for Kurzheck, "short" in german), painted in white with blue stripes and sold to Team Zitro, from Switzerland. The car is moved by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine which can produce 580hp at 8300 rpm and it's able to reach a top speed over 350 km/h (220 mph).
