The famous sports car manufacturer now has more than 75 years of history behind it – its milestones are on the world’s racetracks and roads. That makes this the perfect occasion for a revised edition of Porsche Milestones.
Porsche has always taken and continues to take unconventional paths in motorsports. There were the lightweight racers for hill climbs, the powerful 917, the first turbo victory at Le Mans, the first racing prototype with ground effect, the first victory for a sports car in the famous Paris-Dakar Rally in the desert (now called the Dakar Rally), not to mention Porsche’s hat trick at le Mans in 2015, 2016, and 2017 with its unique hybrid technology.
On the streets, the 356 has thrilled automobile connoisseurs and elite sports drivers alike since the 1950s; it is a sports car that became increasingly beautiful and faster over the generations. In the mid-sixties, the 911 roared into life; a stroke of genius whose technology and design are still being reinterpreted and recreated today. And time and again Porsche breaks with conventions – take the 356 Speedster, or the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. The Boxster was a bold new launch (incorporating design elements from the magnificent 550). The Cayenne was a daring venture that became a huge hit; the Macan followed swiftly in its wake.
This journey through the milestones demonstrates the very special Porsche custom of breaking with tradition, breaking new ground, but remaining true to itself and recognisable as a Porsche. Porsche Milestones provides the best entertainment for everyone who churns out endorphins at the mere mention of the name Porsche.
