Porsche has a long and storied history in the world of international sports car racing, perhaps one of the most impressive on any modern day car manufacturer. Porsche’s racing heritage begins in 1948 when chassis No. 1 wasn’t even 5-weeks old. Herbert Kaes, Ferdinand Porsche’s nephew, drove the now famous Porsche in its first race (the first race held in Austria after the end of World War II) and took victory in its class. From there, Porsche has gone on to add win after win including 18 overall wins at Le Mans, 22 overall wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 17 overall wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
This week’s installment of Porsche’s “Top 5” Series takes a look back across not just their motorsport history, but their “on-track” history with all cars, both racing and production. With such a lengthy and impressive history I’m not sure I could have chosen just 5, let along these 5. Are there any “on track” milestones you think should have been included?
