Porsche is the winningest manufacturer at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The great Peter Leung put together all of those winning cars in infinitely-looping form.


What makes these cars interesting is that Le Mans is an endurance race. It’s not that these were necessarily the fastest cars of their eras, but that they were the toughest. Old Porsche motorsports chief Norbert Singer talked about this when discussing why the Porsche 956/962 was so successful in an interview with Chris Harris a while back. Everyone at Porsche had to analyze every design decision with durability in mind, as he stated, “this was the education at Porsche. Everything you do—does it last 24 hours?”
