Porsche 917

After lying idle for forty years, the Porsche 917 exhibited in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum took to the tarmac again on 8 June 2010 at an exceptional demonstration on the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit, for the greatest pleasure of all car racing buffs. On this occasion, the equally legendary Gérard Larrousse, former pilot of this car and Le Mans winner in 1973 and 1974, took the wheel again to drive back and forth a few times in the straight section in front of the grandstand. A car of superlatives, probably the most spectacular racing car having raced at Le Mans in the twentieth century, it has been dubbed 'competition car of the century'.This phoenix-like rebirth is the end result of painstaking efforts by the Fondation du Patrimoine and Motul working together to safeguard and enhance heritage cars. __________________________________ Après quarante années de repos et pour le plus grand plaisir de tous les passionnés de course automobile, la Porsche 917 exposée au Musée des 24 Heures a repris du service le 8 juin 2010 lors d'une démonstration exceptionnelle sur le circuit des 24 Heures du Mans. A cette occasion, le non moins légendaire Gérard Larrousse, ancien pilote de cette voiture et vainqueur au Mans en 1973 et 1974, a (re)pris place au volant pour effectuer quelques allers-retours sur la ligne droite des tribunes. Voiture de tous les superlatifs, probablement le plus spectaculaires des bolides ayant couru au Mans au XXe siècle, elle fut nommée « voiture de compétition du siècle ». Cette formidable renaissance a été rendue possible grâce à l'action de la Fondation du Patrimoine et de Motul, associés au service de la sauvegarde et la valorisation du patrimoine automobile.

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.
