Neunsiebzehn

Neunsiebzehn – Der königliche Rennwagen.

Das Porsche Museum feiert den Porsche 917. Vor 50 Jahren aus der Taufe gehoben und mit Anhieb einer der besten Rennwagen überhaupt. Wie ein Zepter liegt eine Nockenwelle über dem Bild von Ferdinand Piech, der Maßgeblich dazu beigetragen hat das der Porsche 917 gebaut wurde und für Jahre die Rennstrecken dominiert hatte. Die Krone in Form der Zylinder liegt neben einem Bild des genialen Porsche Motoren Konstrukteurs Hans Mezger, der es wie kein anderer Verstand ein Meisterwerk an Motor zu entwickeln. Ganze 10 der seltenen Rennwagen sind im Museum zu besichtigen. Dabei gibt es nicht nur die Rennwagen, unter anderem die beiden Original Le Mans Sieger Wagen von 1970 und 1971, zu bestaunen. Einzigartig ist auch das Konzept und die vielen kleinen Details die dem Besucher der Ausstellung im Porsche Museum geniale Einblicke in die Entwicklung des Rennwagens und in die Renngeschichte blicken lassen. Der große weite der Duft der Boxengasse weht um die ausgestellten Rennwagen und die Luft, die ein zentrales Thema bei der Entwicklung des Porsche 917 gespielt hat, wir dem Besucher mit einem kleinen Windkanal und diversen Modellen verdeutlicht. Man möchte sich ganz nicht mehr trennen von den vielen kleinen Details, von den Geschichten, von den Farben und von den Rennwagen. Wahrscheinlich kommt man wieder ins Museum, schon alleine um die anderen Porsche im Museum zu sehen. Man möchte Nachts alleine im Museum sein, wenn die 917er von den alten Zeiten erzählen….

Nine Seventeen – The Royal Racing Car.

The Porsche Museum celebrates the Porsche 917. Launched 50 years ago and one of the best racing cars ever. Like a sceptre, a camshaft lies over the picture of Ferdinand Piech, who contributed significantly to the fact that the Porsche 917 was built and had dominated the race tracks for years. The crown in the shape of the cylinders lies next to a picture of the ingenious Porsche engine designer Hans Mezger, who developed it like no other mind a masterpiece of engine. A total of 10 of the rare racing cars can be seen in the museum. Not only the racing cars can be admired, including the two original Le Mans winning cars from 1970 and 1971. Also unique is the concept and the many small details that give the visitor to the Porsche Museum exhibition an ingenious insight into the development of the racing car and the history of racing. The great expanse of the smell of the pit lane blows around the exhibited racing cars and the air, which played a central role in the development of the Porsche 917, is illustrated to the visitor with a small wind tunnel and various models. You don’t want to separate from the many small details, from the stories, from the colours and from the racing cars. Probably you will come back to the museum, just to see the other Porsche in the museum. You want to be alone in the museum at night, when the 917s tell about the old times….

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.

Porsche Turbo Die Ära der Turbo-Elfer

Porsche Turbo Die Ära der Turbo-Elfer

Motorbuch Verlag

In diesem Band wird die Geschichte des Porsche Turbo beschrieben, jeder Modelljahrgang dokumentiert sowie Fahrleistungen und Technik unter die Lupe genommen. Abgerundet wird das Ganze durch Kommentare von Walter Röhrl.

Mit dem 911 Turbo 3.0 stellte Porsche Mitte der 70er-Jahre den ersten Seriensportwagen Deutschlands mit Turbolader-Technik vor. Die einzigartige Turbo-Chronik von Dirk-Michael Conradt ist weit mehr als eine Aneinanderreihung von Daten, Fakten und technischen Beschreibungen bis zum Modelljahr 2016: Es ist die Geschichte einer Legende, spannend erzählt, umfassend dokumentiert und detailliert aufgezeichnet unter Mithilfe von Technikern und Entwicklern. Welche Rolle eine Flasche Whiskey in der Turbo-Entstehungsgeschichte spielte und was Rallye-Legende und Turbo-Entwicklungshelfer Walter Röhrl über die einzelnen Typen zu sagen hat, erfahren Sie nur in diesem Band.

This volume describes the history of the Porsche Turbo, documents each model year, as well as driving performance and technology under the microscope. The whole thing is rounded off by comments from Walter Röhrl.

With the 911 Turbo 3.0, Porsche presented the first production sports car in Germany with turbocharger technology in the mid-1970s. Dirk-Michael Conradt’s unique turbo chronicle is much more than a series of dates, facts and technical descriptions until the model year 2016: It is the story of a legend, narrative narrative, comprehensively documented and recorded in detail with the help of technicians and developers. What role a bottle of whiskey played in the history of turbo formation and what rally legend and turbo development assistant Walter Röhrl has to say about the individual types, you will only learn in this volume.
