What’s it like to drive a 936 or 956 on the track? Unless you’ve done it, it’s impossible to explain. Who better than Porsche Motorsport icon Jacky Ickx. Filmed during the “Porsche Experience Day 2017” at Fuji Speedway, Ickx is easily one of the most accomplished race car drivers in recent history. His achievements include victories in everything from Formula 1 to the Paris Dakar Ralley to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In fact, four of his six Le Mans wins came while at the wheel of a Porsche (both 936s and a 956). The same Porsches featured in this video.
As Jackie says, “It’s easy to win when you have the right car.” Porsche is the right car! Want to see just how fast these Porsches were? Watch the video below. It might not be Jackie in the cockpit, but you’ll still get the feel for the speed these turbo-charged icons were capable of.
