Albúm fotográfio dos 917 desde o inicio deste mítico modelo. Excelente fotos originais.
This is the second title in the Great Cars by Porter Press and its subject is the Porsche 917 that won Le Mans in 1970. Author Ian Wagstaff tells the epic story of that race, and the six other World Sports Car Championship events in which chassis 023 took part, and concludes that the car should never have won the 24 Hours.
This magnificent book tells the story of the most important Porsche 917 of all - the one that gave Porsche its first victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours. This book provides detailed insight into not only this race but also the six others in which 917-023 took part, supported by a superb collection of period photographs, many in colour.
