The 917 turns 50 this year, having been unveiled first time in 1969 at the Geneva Motor Show. Just one year later, it brought Porsche it first overall win at Le Mans and went on to become one of the most admired and successful racers we’ve ever built.
To mark the occasion, the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen will have ten 917s on display from 14 May to 15 September, in one of its biggest-ever special exhibitions: “Colours of Speed – 50 Years of the 917”.
The event will give visitors the chance to see the first ever 917 up close. The museum workshop team has been working for years to restore chassis 001 to its original condition, and it now appears just as it would have at its world premiere in 1969. #Porsche #917 #PorschMuseum
