Once again, the roads near the French city of Le Mans will turn in a
circuit of a special kind. For the 91st time, known greats of the
motorsport scene meet to show their skills at the famous 24-hour race of Le
Mans. At least since the 70´s the endurance race enjoys cult status. With
the flair of yesterday and the technical state of today, the race offers an
unbeatable mix of adrenaline, excitement and an unique atmosphere.

I saw this Porsche 965 group C car in action on track during the 2014
Ayrton Senna Tribute at Imola racetrack. The car (chassis #104) was built
in 1983 and bought by Joest Racing which used the car in many races between
1983 and 1986. In 1984 the 956-104 took part in the 1000km of Nurburgring
Nordschelife with Ayrton Senna, Henri Pescarolo and Stefan Johansson.
The Porsche 956 is moved by a 2.65L turbocharged Flat-6 engine which is able to
produce around 635 hp. Nowdays the car is owned by Alexander Seibold.

Porsche 956 - Le Mans - On Board
956 - thanks for the comment, corrected the title from 917 to 956, i guess
it's true no 917 coupe was ever turbo.
Also the 917 had a peculiar cockpit with the main gauges elevated in a
separated encasing behind the steering wheel.
