“When the first 911 was produced, man hadn’t yet set foot on the moon” One million: that’s how many Porsche 911s (and counting) have now rolled off the production line at Zuffenhausen and are currently gracing roads all over our precious planet. It’s an incredible milestone that is uniquely hard to comprehend – there is simply no other car of such prestige, made by one company alone, on virtually the same production line (to allay all you Model T/ VW Beetle/ Toyota Corolla anoraks) that can lay claim to such a feat. To enthusiasts the 911 has endured some pretty drastic transformations over the years (you can read about the biggest evolutions in our ‘game changers’ feature beginning on page 32) but, on the face of it, the 911 has always remained…

Porsche aim to catch up at Le Mans Double points will close gap on LMP1 rivals Toyota; RSR must improve Two races into the LMP1 season, it’s Porsche’s main rivals, Toyota, who have taken the lead in the WEC championship after successive wins at Silverstone and Spa. After the season opener in Britain, Spa proved particularly challenging for the two 919 e-hybrid prototypes. The driving trio of Earl Bamber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley brought their no.2 car home in third place after battling a slow puncture. Meanwhile the no.1 car of reigning world champions Neel Jani, Andre Lotterer and Nick Tandy started from pole position for the six-hour sprint in Belgium. However, two unfortunately-timed periods of full-course yellow flags allowed rivals to steal an unassailable lead. A fourth-placed finish would have to…

this month in history

1962 Porsche records its Grand Prix victory When Formula 1 went to 1.5-litres in 1961, it seemed tailor-made for a Porsche, which thanks to Stirling Moss had proved quite successful in the 1,500cc F2. But F1 was much more competitive, and during the opening 1961 season, except for one second place, the four-cylinder 718s of Gurney and Bonnier were left behind. Led by Hans Mezger, Porsche worked hard over the winter on a new flat-eight engine and a new car, the 804. Development meant the F8 804 was not ready until mid-season but thanks to retirements, Gurney won at Rouen, and he and Bonnier finished 1-2 at the non-championship Solitude GP the following weekend. A loose battery sadly cost Gurney the lead at the German GP, where he finished third; the 804 was…

Looking forward to Le Mans Ben reveals his preparation secrets for one of the biggest events of the racing season In terms of recognition, one race stands head and shoulders above all others in the endurance racing world, one that casual race fans can name alongside the Monaco Grand Prix or Indianapolis 500, and definitely the one that all sports car drivers want to win. Fernando Alonso’s determination to race at Indianapolis rather than soldier on at the wheel of his F1 car at Monaco was part of a bigger picture, stage two of winning motorsport’s ‘Triple Crown’, with the Le Mans 24 Hours presumably on his radar as the final piece of the jigsaw in the future. For me and the Gulf Racing team, however, pursuit of the silverware at Le Mans…
