Seventy years ago, Porsche celebrated its maiden victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Today, after 19 overall and 108 class wins, it remains the most successful manufacturer in the race’s long and illustrious history. To mark the anniversary, Porsche is running a worldwide roadshow, with static and dynamic exhibitions by 27 original class- and overall-winning cars from its historic collection. The programme concludes with a three-car display at the newly reopened TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum at Hochgurgl in Austria while a second exhibition runs concurrently at the ZeitHaus museum in Wolfsburg.

“We are delighted to be able to present three Le Mans racing cars in Hochgurgl,” says Christoph Emde, Curator of External Presentations, Porsche Heritage and Museum. “At the same time, four special cars and numerous other exhibits are in Wolfsburg, including an original engine from the legendary Porsche 917, models of Porsche racing cars, gloves, helmets, suits and a number of Le Mans winner’s trophies.”

The TOP Mountain Motorcycle Museum is playing host to the 997 generation 911 GT3 RSR ‘Flying Lizard’, the 911 RSR ‘Pink Pig’ and the original 2016 919 Hybrid that earned Porsche its 18th overall Le Mans victory. Meanwhile, the Wolfsburg display includes a 911 RSR, the 911 GT1-98 and 924 GTR LM alongside an exact replica of the 2016 919 Hybrid. Visitors to the Autostadt can also enjoy a timeline showing important figures from Porsche’s Le Mans story, as well as films from the Porsche Moments series, which is hosted by race winner Timo Bernhard.

The roadshow concludes on 27 February 2022.
