    Porsche 917 Concept Study 2014 (2019)

    Porsche 917 Concept Study 2019

    Special exhibition in the Porsche Museum
    From 14 May to 15 September 2019, the Porsche Museum will honour the 50th anniversary of the 917 with an extensive special exhibition entitled “Colours of Speed – 50 Years of the 917”. A total of 14 exhibits – including ten 917 models which alone have a combined PS output of 7,795 – will be on display. The Porsche Museum will present a 917 concept study to the public for the first time as homage to the first Le Mans victory of 1970. The red-and-white show car was designed by a small team of designers and engineers, though with the entry of Porsche into the LMP1 category of he FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), this model remained as purely a concept study. A selection of racing posters and small technical exhibits will round off the special exhibition, which features the highest-ever total PS for such an event. To mark the anniversary, the museum shop will also offer a selection of 917 products for sale, including a pink barbecue apron inspired by the unique 1971 917/20, nicknamed the “Pink Pig”. Edition Porsche Museum, the in-house publisher, will also release a book to mark the anniversary of the 917.

    Porsche 917 Concept Study 2019 #2

    In 2013 a small team of twenty people recruited from Porsche’s design and development department got the green light to build a concept car: an homage to the red-and-white Porsche 917 in which the driver team of Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood achieved the company’s first overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970. Devised to mark Porsche’s decision to contest the LMP1 World Championship, the project never advanced beyond the clay-model stage. The foil-clad study was put in storage and only shown internally—until now. The Porsche Museum is presenting this study to the public for the first time.

    It's rare that a concept knocks my socks off.

    Porsche 917 Concept Study #6

    And some more info from Porsche:

    917 Living Legend

    In just six months, a small team from Weissach developed a tribute to the 1970 Le Mans winner. The concept utilises adaptive aerodynamics and is painted the the Salzburg livery of the original. Under the Carbon Fibre skin only state-of-the-art technology is used. The chassis is based on a carbon fibre Monocoque. The front and rear suspension are based on 918 super sports car components, utilizing motorsport-inspired linkages and pushrods. A turbocharged eight-cylinder engine with up to 1,000 PS provides the power. A drivable prototype has, however, never been produced.

    Year: 2013
    Engine: 8-cylinder Bi-Turbo
    Displacement: 5,000 cc
    Power output: 551–735 kW (750-1,000 PS)
    Top speed: > 300 km/h

    Back to the Future

    The Porsche 917 stays in the memory long after its active service. This is evident not only from the 2013 study, with the shape of its front wings and flat nose. Designers and developers continue to gain inspiration from the multiple race winner and keep reinterpreting the legendary racing car. As early as 1970, when the car was still being raced, designers and developers were working on a model for the automotive future. The Style Porsche design department is answerable for the exterior and interior designs in pre-development projects and series implementation. The department is also responsible for the creation and design of the digital, virtual and physical models as well as for the design quality. The conception, layout and implementation of the designs for special models, market editions and small series and one-offs also fall within the remit of the designers. Their work has a major impact on the Porsche brand.
