Back in 1951, the small sports car manufacturer from Weissach set off for Le Mans with the Porsche 356 SL #46 and immediately clinched a class win. At that time, the car was entirely silver coloured.
Its visual appearance has definitely changed over the years. It used to be painted. Now it is foiled and covered in decals. Proportions should be favourably accentuated, secrets disguised and sponsors also represented. And, of course, the design has constantly changed over the past 50 years since the first Porsche overall victory at the 24h of Le Mans.
In 2020, we can now look back on 19 overall victories at Le Mans. On motorsport history, on cars that demanded our all and gave their all-in return. It is time to remind ourselves of the winners and of the vehicle designs.
