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)[citation needed]. 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).[6] 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.[7] 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,[8][9] another in the US by Race-Car Replicas.[10] In addition, a grass roots "replica," the Laser 917, [11]. which is essentially a rebodied VW Beetle, was featured in the film Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo. 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.

Designed by Rob Innes and Dan Piazza of the American company Innespace it is the production model of the single-seat Innespace Dolphin. The concept came from VASH (variable attitude submersible hydrofoil), which was invented by Thomas "Doc" Rowe[1] and Dennis "Dusty" Kaiser in 1987 with his boat, Noland Won.[2][3] The two seat vessel is powered by an Atkins Rotary Marine engine coupled to a Hurth V-drive transmission. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innespace_Seabreacher The Seabreacher mini shark submarine - cool. A midget submarine is any submarine under 150 tons[citation needed], typically operated by a crew of one or two but sometimes up to 6 or 8, with little or no on-board living accommodation. Midget submarines normally work with mother ships, from which they are launched and recovered, and which provide living accommodation for the crew and other support staff. Both military and civilian midget submarines have been built. Military types work with surface ships and other submarines as mother ships. Civilian and non-combatant military types are generally called submersibles, and normally work with surface ships. Most early submarines, such as the United States Navy's USS Holland (SS-1) and the British Royal Navy's Holland 1, would now be considered midget submarines. Most German midget submarines were developed late in World War II in an attempt to stop the Allied invasion of Europe and used later to disrupt its supply lines. As a result, the submarines mostly engaged in open water attacks rather than harbour penetration. [1] Biber (324 built by AG Weser of Bremen)[2] Delphin (2 built) 2-man 5-ton torpedo with top speed of 20 knots (37 km/h) and submerged radius of 30 nautical miles (56 km) at 3 knots (5.6 km/h).[2] Hai (midget submarine) prototype of improved Marder.[2] Hecht type XXVIIA 2-man 12 ton submarine with 1 mine or 1 torpedo carried outboard to a range of 38 miles at 4 knots.[3] Marder (~300 built) similar to Neger with breathing apparatus to allow submerged operation.[2] Molch Completely electric motordriven WWII (1944--1945) Midget submarine. Total 393 built. Neger (~200 built) 1-man 5-ton torpedo with underslung G7E torpedo. Top speed 20 knots and range of 30 miles at 3 knots.[2] Orca class post-war swimmer delivery vehicle Seehund type XXVIIB[4] Most successful midget submarine in the Kriegsmarine. Operational deployment was between January 1945 -- April 1945. V.80 4-man 76-ton prototype completed in 1940 to test Walther geared turbine propulsion system. Range was 50 nautical miles (93 km) at 28 knots (52 km/h).[5] A submersible is a small vehicle designed to operate underwater. The term submersible is often used to differentiate from other underwater vehicles known as submarines, in that a submarine is a fully autonomous craft, capable of renewing its own power and breathing air, whereas a submersible is usually supported by a surface vessel, platform, shore team or sometimes a larger submarine. In common usage by the general public, however, the word submarine may be used to describe a craft that is by the technical definition actually a submersible. There are many types of submersibles, including both manned and unmanned craft, otherwise known as remotely operated vehicles or ROVs.[1] Submersibles have many uses worldwide, such as oceanography, underwater archaeology, ocean exploration, adventure, equipment maintenance/recovery or underwater videography. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Submersible

No other manufacturer has achieved such impressive results at the world’s toughest endurance race. With the innovative Porsche 919 Hybrid, Earl Bamber (NZ), Nico Hülkenberg (D) and Nick Tandy (GB) won the coveted title exactly 45 years to the day after Porsche’s very first overall victory at the Sarthe. Their team mates Timo Bernhard (D), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Mark Webber (AUS) finished second and completed the 1-2 for Porsche. The US race driver and actor Patrick Dempsey celebrated the biggest success of his racing career by coming in second with a Porsche 911 RSR in the GTE-Am class . Porsche made its début in 2014 with the most innovative drive system in the WEC starting field. The concept was created and refined in a team led by LMP1 Technical Director Alexander Hitzinger. All drive system components were optimised for the 2015 season. The combustion efficiency of the now lighter and more rigid 2-litre V4 turbocharged petrol engine has been increased, for example. The V engine’s load-bearing function (90 degree cylinder bank angle) within the chassis was also optimised by means of geometric adjustments that have led to better overall rigidity. The previously used centralised Exhaust tract has been replaced by a twin Exhaust-pipe system in order to improve output and optimise the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The 500-hp combustion engine powers the rear axle. Higher output at a lower weight were achieved by a complete redesign of the energy recovery systems. The kinetic energy produced at the front axle when braking is converted into electrical energy. That’s the first energy recovery system – the second is installed in the Exhaust tract, where the Exhaust-gas stream drives a second turbine (in parallel with the turbocharger) that acts as a generator. The electricity thus produced – along with that generated by the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) at the front axle – is temporarily stored in lithium-ion battery cells. The driver can call up power from the cells, and if he engages the full-Boost function, additional power output of more than 400 hp will thrust him back into his seat. This power is applied to the front axle by the electric motor, and it temporarily transforms the 919 Hybrid into an all-wheel drive race car with system power of nearly 1,000 hp. Nicolas "Nico" Hülkenberg (German pronunciation: [ˈniːko ˈhʏlkənbɛɐ̯k], born 19 August 1987) is a German professional racing driver and winner of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans currently racing for the Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team. In 2015 he will also contest in two rounds of the 2015 World Endurance Championship for Porsche. He was the 2009 champion of the GP2 Series, and is a previous champion of both the Formula 3 Euro Series and A1 Grand Prix, as part of A1 Team Germany. He is one of three drivers since 2005 to win the GP2 series championship in his debut season, the others being Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Earl Anderson Bamber[1] (born 9 July 1990) is a professional racing driver from New Zealand, currently competing in the North American United SportsCar Championship in the GT Le Mans class as a factory driver for Porsche.[2] He is the reigning Porsche Supercup and double Porsche Carrera Cup Asia champion.[3] He won the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans with Nico Hülkenberg and Nick Tandy. Nick Tandy (born 5 November 1984) is a professional British racing driver and winner of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Porsche 919 Hybrid is a sports-prototype racing car constructed by the German car manufacturer Porsche for use in the Le Mans Prototype 1-Hybrid (LMP1-H) category of the FIA World Endurance Championship for factory-supported hybrid-powered cars. It is the first sports-prototype built by Porsche since the RS Spyder, the first sports-prototype built by Porsche to compete in a top category of sportscar racing since the Porsche 911 GT1-98 and Porsche LMP1-98 and the first sports-prototype to be raced by Porsche as a racing team since the Porsche 911 GT1-98 and Porsche LMP1-98. It utilises a 2.0 L four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a battery-based hybrid system.[2] The car made its competitive début at the 2014 6 Hours of Silverstone, the opening round of the 2014 season. The 919 nomenclature is a reference to the successful Porsche 917 of the 1970s, and the Porsche 918 production sports car that the company débuted in 2013.
