Iconic Racing Porsche Is Pure Happiness

The Porsche 917 is certainly one of the most iconic cars of all time. Of the sixty-five built between 1969 and 1973, some have an impressive racing history, others a more modest one. Some 917s saw special duty, like the beastly 917/10 and 917/30 built specifically for the American CanAm series. Another 917 was made street-legal for Count Rossi, and some have a very special history, like 917 #013 that we encountered a few weeks ago on the French autodrome of Montlhéry.
