Porsche 911 RSR Takes Stunning And Dominant 24 Hours Of Le Mans Double GT Victory

Porsche and subsidiary Manthey Racing put on a masterclass of how to win at Le Mans this weekend, taking the GTE Pro class victory with gusto. Porsche followed that up with a victory in the GTE Am category for Dempsey-Proton Racing, as if one win weren’t enough. In what is supposed to be the world’s toughest endurance race, the GTE Pro class-winning #92 Porsche 911 RSR ‘Pink Pig’ of Kevin Estre, Laurens Vanthoor, and Michael Christensen led 91.9% of the race, staying at the front for 316 laps of 344 (with the #91 Rothmans car leading most of the remainder. Ford led 3 laps, Porsche led the rest). It was a dominant showing in which the chips fell in the Pig’s direction, handing them the definitive lead of the race at about hour four, and never looking back. The #91 Porsche of Richard Lietz, Fred Mako, and Gianmaria Bruni rounded out the amazing effort by following their team car home in second. Mako spent about 90 minutes battling with one of the Ford GTs to maintain the second position.

It was that same safety car period early in the race that netted the #77 Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche its lead. With the driver trio of Porsche Junior driver Julien Andlauer, Christian Ried, and Porsche Young Professional driver Matt Campbell, the team was able to put in an inspired drive early in the race to be in position to grab the lead at just the right moment. Once the team were gifted a huge lead thanks to the strange three-car safety car procedure at Le Mans, it was just a matter of maintaining that gap to second position. Of the 335 laps the team car completed, exactly 300 of those laps were conducted from the head of the class. Andlauer, at 18 years of age, is the youngest Le Mans class winner in history.

By their own accounting, Porsche notched up their 106th and 107th Le Mans 24 class victories this weekend. A good result by any measure.

In the less-good category for Porsche, the CORE Autosport-run American IMSA competing 911 RSRs, numbers 93 and 94, did not fare nearly so well. The No. 93 Porsche of Patrick Pilet, Earl Bamber, and Nick Tandy suffered a technical issue that cost them 25 minutes in the pits. Once they’d fallen several laps behind, there was no catching up for them, and they ultimately crossed the finish line in 11th. The #94 fared even worse, as Romain Dumas, Timo Bernhard, and Sven Muller were forced to retire at hour seven with a failed suspension component.

Comments on the race

Dr Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board:

“An absolutely perfect weekend for Porsche. You can’t wish for more than this in our anniversary year. It’s impossible to plan such a thing, but when it happens it’s an indescribable feeling. Congratulations to the drivers, the teams and all the employees who made this success possible. It makes me very proud.”

Oliver Blume, CEO of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG:

“We prepared meticulously for this race and have worked towards this for months. The entire team did a perfect job. We’re incredibly proud of this double victory in the GTE-Pro class and of winning the amateur classification. This is a fantastic achievement from our employees. Porsche belongs to Le Mans and Le Mans belongs to Porsche.”

Michael Christensen (Porsche 911 RSR #92):

“It was an incredible race, I don’t know what to say. The car was fast right from the start. We had a little luck during a safety car phase and we managed to pull clear of the field a little. From that point on we focused on extending our lead. In the final third of the race we simply tried to avoid taking any risks and bring the car home safely. This worked perfectly.”

Frédéric Makowiecki (Porsche 911 RSR #91):

“Our car was very fast, but we simply couldn’t keep up with our sister car, which was incredibly consistent. For over an hour I battled hard with a competitor for second place. That makes my job as a race driver really fun, but we couldn’t make up ground in this phase. I’m thrilled for the team with our second place at Le Mans. We’ll be back next year to fight for victory.”

Nick Tandy (Porsche 911 RSR #93):

“It’s disappointing, of course, not to be further ahead. But we accept the good races with the bad. It was great to see that our car’s pace was good and we could match the frontrunners. Unfortunately, technical problems threw us back considerably. It just wasn’t our race this year.”

Julien Andlauer (Porsche 911 RSR #77):

“At 18 years of age I was given the chance to contest Le Mans for the first time and then we won. I’m very proud of the whole team and I can’t really believe it yet. Now I’m the youngest Le Mans winner, incredible.”

Patrick Dempsey, co-owner Dempsey-Proton Racing:

“I’m lost for words. Everyone did a fantastic job, it was a victory for the whole team. The race was incredible, we made no mistakes and our work was rewarded with this great success. I can’t tell you how incredibly proud and happy I am for Porsche, too.”

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay: Volume 113

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for nearly three years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing cars pop up now and again. This week we’re focusing on subsets of Porsche enthusiasm with a tribute, a safari car, an art car, an outlaw, and a ‘Sports Purpose’ build. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed our curated look at the Porsche market. Keep in mind, some of these Porsches could be great collection investments, while others might prove to do more financial harm than good.


Every other week, we feature 5 of our favorite Porsches on eBay. That post is sent out to our mailing list of more than 17,000 Porsche owners and fans and is seen by 10s of thousands of other readers who visit our site directly. If you’re selling a Porsche on eBay and would like to see it featured here, just shoot us an email with the details and we’ll be back in touch. Otherwise, feel free to check out all the other eBay listings we have on our Porsches for sale pages.

1. 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Safari

I saw this Safari’d watercooled Porsche floating around Los Angeles when I was down there for Luft V. This is pretty cool, if you ask me. The olive green satin color is painted on, not a wrap. And the car has been legitimately lifted a full two inches over factory. A roof rack, a light bar, and some rally flaps have this thing looking properly off-road ready. Is it worth more than twice what a regular 996 is going for right now? Maybe. That’s still a bargain in the Porsche world, and it’s way cheaper than a G-body Safari goes for these days. If you’re so inclined, you could probably replicate this for a lot less, to be honest.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

2. 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo ‘Splatter’ Art Car

This is one wild-looking 996 Turbo that people won’t soon forget having seen. While the exterior color is just a simple wrap job, it’s a good looking color mash up, and gives the car an exciting visual aesthetic. Moreover, this Porsche has been modified up to over 700 horsepower. It’s got a pair of Garrett GT358R turbos, a double stacked intercooler setup, custom headers, custom muffler, and way more to get that figure. If you want to go fast, and look really fast in the process, this is the right 996 for you.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

3. 1970 Porsche 914/6 Outlaw

914s are a ton of fun to drive, even with minuscule power outputs. They’re extremely well balanced and provide an experience unmatched by anything else sold in the early 70s. Throw in a 260-horsepower modified 3-liter from a 911 SC, and you’ve got a powerhouse convergence of lightweight, power, and balance. Because it’s so light, this Porsche ‘Teener has a similar power-to-weight ratio as a brand new GT3 RS, which is never a bad thing. Given the choice, I’d have this 914 for a track outing than any 911. What about you?

4. 1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Carrera RSR Tribute

After all these years of being a self-avowed Porsche fanatic, I’ve never seen anything quite like this so-called RSR Tribute, but I instantly love it. Everything below the beltline screams RSR, with huge flares, giant wheels, and an almost 934-esque look. Above the door handles, however, the drop-top and flag mirrors scream ’80s so hard it hurts. It’s incredible, and you’ll probably never see another one like it.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

5. 1975 Porsche 911 S ‘Sports Purpose’ 3.0L-swap

Perhaps my personal favorite of the five listed here, this 1975 Porsche 911 has received a big power and reliability bump from a 3-liter Carrera engine swap, which allegedly received a recent rebuild. It’s also had a limited slip differential and a custom exhaust. So not only does this car have a ton of performance, but it’s also significantly lighter than the Carrera from whence the engine came. Toss on some SC flares, a Carrera tail, and some lightweight two-piece wheels, and you’ve got a nice little track runner.

Porsche s’offre une partie de Rimac

Il semblerait que Porsche soit désormais prêt à se tourner vers l’électrique dans le futur. Si la firme de Stuttgart semble déjà se débrouiller seule avec sa Mission E, dont la version de série a par ailleurs été rebaptisée Taycan, elle serait désormais à la recherche d’un partenaire dans le développement de ses futurs modèles sportifs zéro-émission.

A la surprise générale, le constructeur vient donc de s’offrir 10% de Rimac Automobili, la marque croate derrière les Concept One et C_Two. Fondée en 2009 par Mate Rimac, l’entreprise a déjà travaillé aux côtés de Renault, Jaguar et Aston Martin par le passé. Plus étonnant, sa technologie électrique a par ailleurs été utilisée dans le développement de la Jaguar Type-E Zero, conduite par le Prince Harry lors de son mariage avec Meghan Markle.

Un développement important pour Rimac

Ce nouveau partenariat promet d’offrir un nouvel élan à Rimac, qui avait par ailleurs bénéficié d’un gros coup de pub à la suite de l’accident de Richard Hammond l’an dernier. De son côté, Porsche se félicite de cette acquisition et se montre confiant « En développant des supersportives électriques deux places comme le Concept One ou la C Two, en plus de systèmes de base de la voiture, Rimac a démontré de manière impressionnante ses compétences en matière…Lire la suite sur Auto moto : magazine auto et moto
