This is one of the first model of a car I ever built, I think I was 10 at the time and my bigger brother helped. No Porsche before it or after have I ever wanted as badly as this.

The ultimate.

who cares about the looks? its not the most attractive thing out there but its performance will definitely make up for it. it's not like you can just walk into a dealership, "hi do you have any porsche 917s in stock?"

when you think of porsche and looks, theres the carrera gt

This is the car that did 250 down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans. Legend has it though that when achieving this feat it was being passed!

I would be scared driving that car......Awesome car!

I think this is the K body car so not too stable running down the Mulsanne..... The longer body cars look a bit more wierd..

I love the 917-30, this is the Can-Am killer....1500 hp of love.

Porsche at its best.....now they build trucks and yacht sized cars
