Porsche –
Le Mans Classic

24 Stunden, einmal rund um die Uhr, wurde und wird in Le Mans Jahr für Jahr um den Titel gefahren. Seit 1951, als Porsche erstmals mit zwei Wagen des Typs 356/4 SL Coupé an diesem berühmten Rennen teilgenommen hat, fand bis heute kein einziges Rennen mehr ohne Beteiligung des Sportwagenherstellers aus Stuttgart statt.
Allerdings fuhr im ersten Rennen allein der Wagen mit der Startnummer 46, denn der zweite hatte durch einen Unfall im Training einen irreparablen Schaden davongetragen.
Die Startnummer 46 hielt hingegen durch, Porsche wurde in seiner ersten Teilnahme an diesem prestigeträchtigen Rennen Klassensieger in der Gruppe bis 1100 cm3 und erzielte im Gesamtklassement den sensationellen 20. Platz.
Die Gegenwart ist schnell, technisch hochgerüstet und erfolgreich. Das war auch schon in der Vergangenheit mit den Rennwagen
von Porsche so. Und diese, zum Großteil sehr erfolgreiche Vergangenheit zeigt sich in ihrer ganzen Bandbreite alle zwei Jahre bei den Le Mans Classic.

Strap in for German engineered horsepower in this specialized history of Porsche engines. In this detailed and extravagantly photographed book you’ll get a full account of race cars powered by Porsche engines, but were developed by other companies. This is the first title to detail the entire history of Porsche engines down to exact specs on engines, non-Porsche chassis, and race details; plus, personal stories from team drivers. This massive volume covers nearly 50 years, and is loaded with over 700 photos, many of which have never been published before. Just because this history is thorough doesn’t mean it’s a chore to read. The approachable, gearhead-focused writing style makes for an enjoyable book to dive into. The story starts in the late 1970s when the demand for services, cars, chassis, and parts from Porsche outstripped their ability to deliver. The Porsche organization was rapidly expanding, and projects had to be prioritized. The rest is history that you’ll be able to see for yourself!

the alternative race cars
by Roy Smith
This book is a detailed account of the racing cars from 1950 to 2010 that were powered by Porsche engines, but where the chassis and development of the car was carried out by others.
The Porsche company in Zuffenhausen, Germany, can probably be said to be the most successful marque ever for victories in the motor racing scene. Likewise many firsts in innovation have come with the name Porsche attached.
Then there are the builders of racing cars, some major producers, such as Elva, Lotus, Lola, March, all at some time featured a Porsche engine in their chassis. In the late 1970s and into the 1980s, the demand for the services and supply of cars, chassis, and parts from Porsche, outstripped their ability to deliver. Plus with many new projects in the rapidly expanding Porsche organisation, race car projects had to be prioritised. This would lead to the creation of the replicas, as opposed to the factory built works race cars, even Porsche was building ‘replica’ 935s to supply to clients, this was to continue into the 962 era. In turn a whole new highly specialised high quality industry grew up to meet the demand for Porsche-powered racers. In this book we see the racing cars, the teams and the people who turned to Porsche to utilise the power from, perhaps, the greatest of all engine makers.
This is thought to be first book on the subject, covering the entire history of Porsche engines, detailed engine specifications, non-Porsche chassis, and race details, as well as team history with anecdotes from drivers. It is illustrated with many previously unpublished photos, and provides fascinating reading for the enthusiast and newcomer alike.
