The basic idea: at the wheel of the Porsche 917 KH in the red and white livery of Porsche Salzburg, Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood won the first overall victory for Porsche at Le Mans in the summer of 1970. When Porsche returned to the LMP1 sport in 2013, the team in Weissach developed a modern interpretation of the winning car of yesteryear. The Porsche 918 Spyder served as the technical inspiration. “In the super sports cars from Porsche, you always have the feeling of practically sitting on the road between the high wheel arches,” says Michael Mauer. “We wanted to emphasise this even further.”
