50 Years of Porsche 917 Celebrated at Goodwood
Porsche will present four world premieres at the 77th edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 4-7) in Great Britain.
For the first time, Porsche presents four driving examples of the 917 - including the first 917, chassis 001 which has been restored just in time. Furthermore, the 917/30-001 celebrates its debut after its restoration in Sussex. The 917-001 and the 917/30-001 meet for the first time at a driving event.
Joining the first ever built 917 and the 917/30-001 will be the 917 KH and the 917/30 Spyder respectively winners of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the speed record on the Talladega Speedway with an average of 355,848 km/h.
Driving the cars at Goodwood will be Le Mans winners Richard Attwood and Neel Jani along with former F1 and LMP1 racer Mark Webber.
Following Goodwood, the cars will leave the UK to re-join the Porsche Museum collection in Stuttgart. From 14 May to 15 September 2019, the Porsche Museum will honour the 50th anniversary of the 917 with a special exhibition “50 Years of Porsche 917 - Colours of Speed”.
