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 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.

Innespace Seabreacher (or Sea Breacher) is a two-seat submersible personal
watercraft, with a shape based on that of dolphin, and the ability to
imitate a dolphin's movement.
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 and Dennis "Dusty" Kaiser in 1987 with his
boat, Noland Won.
The two seat vessel is powered by an Atkins Rotary Marine engine coupled to
a Hurth V-drive transmission.
The Seabreacher mini shark submarine - cool.
A midget submarine is any submarine under 150 tons,
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
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. 
Biber (324 built by AG Weser of Bremen)
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
Hai (midget submarine) prototype of improved Marder.
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.
Marder (~300 built) similar to Neger with breathing apparatus to allow
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.
Orca class post-war swimmer delivery vehicle
Seehund type XXVIIB Most successful midget submarine in the
Kriegsmarine. Operational deployment was between January 1945 -- April
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
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. Submersibles have many uses worldwide, such
as oceanography, underwater archaeology, ocean exploration, adventure,
equipment maintenance/recovery or underwater videography.

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...
