A Le Mans' Hero: Porsche 917 - PURE RACECAR SOUNDS
When you think about racecars and Le Mans, you probably think about this:
the Porsche 917. You used to see this monster in videogames but in my video
you can finally see how it looks like in real world!
I'm proud to host on my channel this proper Le Mans hero, a Porsche 917/k
to be precise. The history of this incredible machine is way too long to be
reported here so I'll link its Wikipedia page:
I'll then stick to what it's like to see such a monster in real world; it's
just amazing: the car is lower than anything else, the sound it produces is
nearly disturbing due to its loudness! I cannot imagine what was like to
race at Le Mans or at the Nurburgring in one of these...

Last weekend I recorded a 1969 Porsche 917 (chassis 025) racing at Monza
Circuit during the "1000 km Challenge" race revival, a 3 hours race in
which race cars from 1960 to 1970 compete for the victory.
This Porsche 917-025 was built for Porsche AG as a long-tail version. In
1970 was converted into a 917 "K" (K stay for Kurzheck, "short" in german),
painted in white with blue stripes and sold to Team Zitro, from
The car is moved by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine which can produce 580hp at
8300 rpm and it's able to reach a top speed over 350 km/h (220 mph).

PORSCHE 917 ENGINE ANIMATION
Animated 3D model of the internal workings of a Porsche 917 engine. Model
was created in Solidworks. 180 individual frames, representing 2 full
engine revolutions, were then rendered in PhotoView 360. First 180 frames
are repeated 3 times to produce 30 seconds of video at 24 FPS. Each frame
took approximately 20 minutes to render with a resolution of 1280 X 1024.

The Awesome Porsche 917.
This was pieced together from dozens of video clips, many of them not
having soundtracks or featuring that magnificent engine sound. I used the
music and multiple splices of engine audio tracks to give the video
continuity. Contrary to some of the posters interpretation, I did not sit
around with a pair of tin snips removing the sound of this wonderful car
from rare archival footage.
