The Porsche 917 is a race car 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 Can Am 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 test track top speed of up to 240 mph (390 km/h). The highest official speed ever clocked for a 917 at Le Mans is 362 km/h or 224.4 mph. 2009 marked the 40th anniversary of the 917, and Porsche held a special celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (3–5 July).

  • The Porsche 917 is a race car 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 Can Am 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 test track top speed of up to 240 mph (390 km/h). The highest official speed ever clocked for a 917 at Le Mans is 362 km/h or 224.4 mph. There are at least eleven variants of the 917. The original version had a removable long tail/medium tail with active rear wing flaps, but had considerable handling problems at high speed because of significant rear lift. The handling problems were investigated at a joint test at the Österreichring by the factory engineers and their new race team partners John Wyer Engineering and after exhaustive experimentation by both groups, a shorter, more upswept tail was found to give the car more aerodynamic stability at speed. The changes were quickly adopted into a new version of the 917, called the Kurzheck, or short-tail, with the new version being called the 917K. The 917K, and the special Le Mans long-tail version (called the 917 Langheck, or 917L), dominated the 1970 and 1971 World Sportscar Championships. In 1971, a variant of the 917K appeared with a less upswept tail and vertical fins, and featured the concave rear deck that had proved so effective on the 1970 version of the 917L (see below). The fins kept the clean downforce inducing air on the top of the tail and allowed the angle of the deck to be reduced, reducing the drag in direct proportion. The result was a more attractive looking car that maintained down force for less drag and higher top speed. By this time the original 4.5-litre engine, which had produced around 520 bhp in 1969, had been enlarged through 4.9-litres (600 bhp) to 5-litres and produced a maximum of 630 bhp. The 917K models were generally used for the shorter road courses such as Sebring, Brands Hatch, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps. The big prize for Porsche however, was Le Mans. For the French circuit's long, high speed straights, the factory developed special long tail bodywork that was designed for minimum drag and thus highest maximum speed. On the car's debut in 1969, these long-tail (917L) models proved to be nearly uncontrollable as there was so little down force. In fact, they generated aerodynamic lift at the highest speeds. For 1970, an improved version was raced by the factory (although the John Wyer team still preferred the security of the 917K) and for 1971, after very significant development in the wind tunnel, the definitive 917L was raced by both factory and JW. These cars were so stable that the drivers could take their hands off the steering wheel at speeds which reached 246 mph.In 1971 Jo Siffert raced an open-top 917PA Spyder (normally aspirated) in the 1971 CanAm series. There is also the "Pink Pig" aerodynamic research version (917/20), and the turbocharged 917/10 and 917/30 CanAm Spyders. Porsche 917s also raced in the European Interseries in various configurations. In the 1973 Can-Am series, the turbocharged version Porsche 917/30 developed 1,100 bhp (820 kW). 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 celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (3–5 July).

  • El Porsche 917 es un automóvil de carreras del fabricante alemán Porsche. Con él, la marca logró sus primeras victorias en las 24 Horas de Le Mans, en las ediciones de 1970 y 1971. Impulsado por un motor Tipo 912 flat-12 de 4.5, 4.9, o 5 litros, la versión con cola extendida era capaz de acelerar de 0-100 km/h en menos de 2.5 segundos y desarrollaba una velocidad máxima superior a los 396 km/h. En 1973 en las series CanAm, la versión con turbo del Porsche 917/30 desarrolló más de 1100 CV, y hasta 1580 CV en clasificación. El 917 participó junto con Steve McQueen en la película Le Mans. En 1975 se matriculó una unidad debidamente transformada y homologada para calle. (es)

  • Der Porsche 917 ist ein Rennwagen des deutschen Automobilherstellers Porsche. Er wurde 1969 auf der Genfer Automobilausstellung vorgestellt. Der 917 wurde von einem luftgekühlten Zwölfzylinder-Mittelmotor angetrieben. Die ersten Motoren hatten 1969 bei einem Hubraum von 4,5 Litern eine Leistung von 383 kW (520 PS) bei 8000/min. 1973 wurden die Motoren mit Turboladern versehen und hatten eine Leistung von 810 kW (1100 PS) bei 7800/min. Der Rennwagen wurde in den unterschiedlichen Karosserieformen Kurzheck-Coupé, Langheck-Coupé und Spyder hergestellt. Er war einer der erfolgreichsten Rennsportwagen der 1970er-Jahre, dessen Bedeutung für Porsche insbesondere darin liegt, bei Sportwagenrennen erstmals in der damals größten Hubraumklasse mehrere Gesamtsiege errungen zu haben. Mit dem 917 erreichte Porsche 1970 erstmals den Gesamtsieg beim 24-Stunden-Rennen von Le Mans. (de)

  • De Porsche 917 is een raceauto die tussen 1969 en 1970 verscheen. De Porsche was erg opzienbarend vanwege de unieke samenstelling van de auto. Het chassis was van aluminium, de carrosserie van glasvezelversterkte kunststof en de motor was een zogenaamde 180°-V12 (een combinatie van twee Porsche 911 motoren). De Porsche 917 werd veel gebruikt tijdens de 24 uur van Le Mans waar hij in 1970 en 1971 won. Ook won de wagen in 1971 de 12 uur van Sebring. De Porsche schopte het ver op racegebied en is anno 2009 nog steeds te zien op tv in een commercial van UPC. (nl)
  • Porsche 917 é um carro que correu em corridas de endurance de 1969 até 1971, vencendo as 24 Horas de Le Mans de 1970 e 1971, onde, em 71, estabeleceu um recorde que se mantém até os dias de hoje. A partir de 1971, as regras estabelecidas pela FIA fizeram com que apenas carros com motores menores de 5 litros competissem, o que fez com que o 917 fosse banido das pistas.O carro teve algumas subdivisões de modelos, como o 917 K, o 917/30, o 917 LH e os 917/10 e 917/20 que corriam pelo campeonato americano Can-Am. Neste campeonato, as regras eram praticamente as de que, o carro teria que ser um carro de dois lugares, "cabriolet", ou seja, sem teto, e tivesse 4 rodas. Sem limite de cilindradas ou potência. Com toda essa liberdade, a Porsche criou um carro que tinha mais de 1500 hp, e que poderia alcançar os 400 Km/h. Esse carro era o 917/30, um carro difícil de ser domesticado devido à toda sua potência e o famoso turbo-lag. (pt)
