Porsche stamina in racing has been sustained for 50 years. The first 356 aluminum coupe had hardly left the workshop in the company's former Gmund headquarters in Austria, when Porsche cars began making headlines at national and international events.
Today, GT racing enjoys a high priority at the Stuttgart-based company. But sportscars stand proudly in the glorious racing history, too, highlighted by 14 marques and team championships, nine sportscar drivers´ world titles and uncountable victories.
Porsche continued this tradition in Le Mans 1998 together with Joest Racing.
