2018 marks the 70th Anniversary for Porsche. Although Porsche was involved with designing and manufacturing prior to 1948, the 356 born in this year is seen as the first production Porsche. Since then, an incredible history of Porsche sports cars has followed, including the iconic Porsche 911 and technical masterpieces such as the Carrera GT supercar and 918 Spyder hypercar.
The German sports car manufacturer also happens to be pretty handy on the race track too, and throughout history has provided us with some legendary race cars. So much so that Porsche also happens to be the most successful manufacturer when it comes to the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours. They have taken the top spot an impressive 19 times between 1970 and 2017.
As well as the yearly Le Mans 24 Hours, this year Le Mans Classic is also taking place, just a couple of weeks after. With this in mind, we thought we would take a look back at some of our favourite classic Porsches to have ever graced the famous Circuit de la Sarthe.
