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:
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...

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 6 variants of the 917. The least-powerful version is the 917K
(the most successful), which produces around 620 bhp. There is also a
long-tail version (917LH), a "pig" version, modified 917K with the 908 rear
spoilers and the 917/30. In the 1973 Can-Am series, the turbocharged version Porsche 917/30 developed over
1,100 bhp (820 kW), and as much as 1,580 bhp (1,180 kW) in qualifying tune.
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.
2009 marked the 40th anniversary of the 917, and Porsche held a special
birthday celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
On 9 August 1975, Porsche and Penske would give the Can-Am car its final
send off in style, when they took their 917/30 to Talladega to break the
FIA speed record on a closed circuit. With Mark Donohue driving, the
average speed reached was 221.160 mph (355.923 km/h). As well as being
the last official outing for the 917, it was the last major accomplishment
for Donohue before his fatal accident in practice for the Austrian Grand
Prix a week later. The record would stand until 1980.
Several 917 coupés as well as 917/10s (powered by turbos or NA engines) were run in Europe's
Interserie until the mid-1970s.
Many 917 leftover parts, especially chassis, suspension and brake
components, would be used to build the Porsche 936 in 1976.
Despite the car's impracticality, at least two 917s were road-registered.
Count Rossi of the Martini concern, bought chassis 030 from Porsche. He
raced it once under the Martini Racing Team Flag at the Zeltweg 1000km
World Championship race on 27th June 1971. After the race, it was returned
to the factory where it was modifed with basic road equipment (exterior
mirrors, turn signals, Exhaust system
and comfort modifications) and painted silver. European authorities refused
to certify the car for road use and Rossi obtained the Alabama plate
61-27737 to circumvent the problems.
The second, for Joachim Grossmann, was painted white and given the German
registration CW-K 917. The Danish car magazine Bilen in a 1977 article
details how Grossmann bought the frame and other components of the original
Chassis 021 which had crashed badly at Le Mans in 1970 for 20,000 DM,
rebuilt it and then modified it (examples: turn signals, hand brake, Safety
glass windows and some modifications to the Exhaust system) to satisfy German safety
inspectors leading to the registration. Grossmann's car is not officially
Chassis 021 because other parts from the 1970 wreck at Le Mans were mated
to spare frame components and retained the Chassis 021 designation.
Recently, high end replicas that use the flat-6 from the 911 have become
available. One is built in Australia by Kraftwerkz, another in the US
by Race-Car Replicas.
In addition, a grass roots "replica," the Laser 917, . which is
essentially a rebodied VW Beetle, was featured in the film Herbie Goes to
The Gulf Oil liveried 917 Kurzhecks are also prominently featured in the
Steve McQueen film Le Mans competing against Ferrari's 512 Coda Lunga.
In 1970,Hot Wheels released a Porsche 917 with some different designs.
