Wheelin' Legend: The Porsche 917K

The original version that the miniature is based on is a Porsche 917K, a famous racing car built from 1969 to 1971. This vehicle was a benchmark of technological progress in its time and was developed by engineers like Ferdinand Piëch and Hans Mezger. The 917K was a further development of the Porsche 917 and was renowned for its outstanding aerodynamics and robust 12-cylinder engine, which in various versions could produce up to 630 hp. The 917K featured a fully aluminum monocoque construction. This groundbreaking technology gave the vehicle a significant weight advantage and contributed to its impressive performance figures.
