As I was doing additional research for my ongoing series on the history of the Porsche 917 I came across the following series of videos. The end of the third video in this series, and most of the fourth, does a better job than I ever could in completing the history/documentation of the 917. The rest of the videos are here for your enjoyment. It's quite a long series, but definitely worth the watch. You may want to bookmark this page and come back a few times as each video (and there are 10 of them) is nine to ten minutes long. Definitely worth the watch! If you only want to finish up the history of the 917, then the end of the third video and most of the fourth is for you. Otherwise, start at the beginning and enjoy.
I'm surprised at how much is still available to find on the internet. If you like these videos, please let me know. I will continue to scour and search and post up what I find. Thanks for looking and thanks in advance for the feedback.
