Third in our ranking is another legend of Le Mans from 1971, the 917 long-tail, with its now unmistakable Martini stripes. A year earlier, this same car – at that time bedecked in the psychedelic green and purple ‘Hippie’ livery – retired due to engine failure. A similar fate befell it the following year, but the ‘Langheck’ still powered its way into the record books as the first racing car to set an average speed of over 240 km/h at Le Mans. #Porsche #PorscheMotorsport #PorscheClassic #PorscheMuseum #917
