Porsche 917 - Poster
Poster of the one of the most epic Porsche EVER!
A new bold design was necessary to bring home the first victory, and this one definitely worked!

Worldwide shipping, because petrolheads are everywhere. (and you are a petrolhead, aren't you?)
The car driven in the 1971 film Le 24 Ore di Le Mans (Le Mans) by Steve Mcqueen (the Gulf Porsche 917K today is worth between 16 and 18.5 million dollars). " Life is about running.
Everything that happens before, or after, is just waiting" is something more than the joke that pronounces in "The 24 Hours of Le Mans" (in the original, Le Mans), what according to Mcqueen would have been the ultimate movie about car racing, breaking "the barrier of cinema between fiction and the reality of racing".
The vehicle, characterized by the famous "shark fins" on the tail, boasts an air-cooled 12-cylinder engine, capable of bringing the car to a speed that exceeds 350 km/h, was presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in 1969.
It was designed to win: it triumphed and became one of the most important racing cars in the history of motoring. What’s more, in 2017, this Porsche of the World Records was auctioned off for the astonishing $14 million. A further record of 917.
Of the experiences accumulated in the race with the 917, Porsche made rich treasure and passed successfully the technologies to their production cars. The first 911 Turbo, born in 1974. But that’s another story.
