Porsche 917

Porcshe 917 blue orange race car

Porsche 917 from the early 1970s depending on the series could have 1,100 hp and hit 240 mph, that’s why this old Porsche could obliterate today’s race cars. The 917/30 Can-Am variant was capable of a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds it was something from another planet on those days.  

917/30 variant, the final official iteration of the 917, is perhaps the most powerful sports racing car to have ever existed. Porsche had all-new bodywork, and the twin-turbocharged engine was bored out to 5.4 liters giving it 1100–1580 horsepower, depending on the state of tune. These cars dominated Can-Am racing so easily that the series lost popularity in the United States. A total of six chassis were built.
