50 years of Porsche 917

The 917: a milestone for Porsche and an icon of motorsport. A formidable racecar that took the first of 19 Porsche victories at Le Mans. Watch the official video.

Developed by a small, passionate team in less than a year under absolute secrecy and enormous time pressure. Now, 50 years later, we present the 917 with chassis number 001 – in the original condition of its world premiere in 1969 – together with other 917 descendants.
