Porsche at Le Mans

The Porsche marque is synonymous with Le Mans, having competed in every single running of the 24-hour race since 1951. The streamlined 356 model entered in 1951 ran like clockwork to 20th place, beating the coveted record for the shortest time spent in the pits. Since that memorable debut, Porsche has won outright at Le Mans 16 times, with a record series of seven consecutive victories from 1981 to 1987.

This beautifully designed and extensively illustrated book provides the definitive history of Porsche’s participation at La Sarthe, chronicling the exploits of both the works team cars and privateer entries.

Hardback, 400 pages, Illustrations (some col.), 280 x 230 mm.
