108 class victories so far. Here is a small selection: 1951 Porsche 356 SL
Class: up to 1.100 ccm
Racing driver: Auguste Veuillet, Edmond Mouche

The start of the legend
Porsche was the first German manufacturer to take part after the end of the war. The 356 SL – SL for Super Light – drove to a class victory. Seven more wins followed up to 1958.

Technology transfer from motorsport to series production
The split ring synchromesh system developed by Porsche proved itself in the extreme endurance test.
1954 Porsche 550 Spyder
Class: up to 1.100 ccm
Racing driver: Auguste Veuillet; Zora Arkus-Duntov

Double entry and double victory
Porsche entered the 550 Spyder in two classes and won both. An output of 68 kW (93 PS) from a displacement of 1.1 litres was enough to give victory to Gonzague Olivier and Arkus-Zora Duntov.

Technology transfer from motorsport to series production
From the 550 Spyder on the race track to the Boxster on the road: a mid-engine layout provided high driving dynamics.
1963 Porsche 718 W-RS Spyder
Class: prototypes up to 2.000 ccm
Racing driver: Herbert Linge, Edgar Barth

Success and farewell
In 1963, the 718 Spyder competed in Le Mans for the seventh and last time. Herbert Linge and Edgar Barth chalked up the fourth class victory with the mid-engine race car.
1965 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS
Class: prototypes up to 2.000 ccm
Racing driver: Herbert Linge, Peter Nöcker

Perfect debut for 911 engine
This victory for the Porsche 904/6 was achieved with a brand-new engine. It was the race version of the new six-cylinder boxer engine for the Porsche 911, which delivered around 154 kW (210 PS) here.
1966 Porsche 911 2.0
Class: GT up to 2.000 ccm
Racing driver: Jacques Dewez, Jean Kerguen

The 911 arrives
A risk rewarded: the brand-new Porsche 911 S took part as the only near-production Gran Turismo and survived 3,821 kilometres at race speed.
1969 Porsche 908 LH Coupé
Class: prototypes up to 3.000 ccm
Racing driver: Gérard Larrousse, Hans Herrmann

David annoys Goliath
Thanks to its excellent aerodynamics, a displacement of three litres was sufficient for the Porsche 908 to drive to the class victory – and almost also to a sensational success against an opponent with larger displacement.
1970 Porsche 914 /6 GT
Class: GT up to 2.000 ccm
Racing driver: Claude Ballot-Léna, Guy Chasseuil

Perfect success
Like the 911 four years previously, the Porsche 914/6 GT celebrated its debut in Le Mans by finishing first in its class. There were four race car classifications. Porsche won them all.
1976 Porsche 935
Class: Group 5
Racing driver: Rolf Stommelen, Manfred Schurti

The ultimate 911
As a 441 kW (600 PS) race version of the 911 Turbo, the Porsche 935 both competed and won for the first time in the 24 Hours. The 935 went on to achieve ten class victories and one overall victory in the period up to 1982.
1981 Porsche 924 GTP Le Mans
Class: prototypes over 3.000 ccm
Racing driver: Jürgen Barth, Walter Röhrl

Test drive onto the podium
The Porsche 924 GTP Le Mans was a camouflaged prototype which was already powered by the engine of the Porsche 944 that would be presented later. Its new four-cylinder turbo engine with fully electronic fuel injection shone in the extreme test.

Technology transfer from motorsport to series production
First race use of the fully electronic fuel injection system from Bosch. A standard technology today.
1986 Porsche 961
Class: IMSA GTX
Racing driver: René Metge, Claude Ballot-Léna

All-wheel drive gala
The first race car with all-wheel drive to finish in Le Mans left eleven formally more powerful prototypes behind it on its drive to a class victory.

Technology transfer from motorsport to series production
Rally Paris-Dakar, Le Mans and onto the road in the 959 super sports car: a controlled all-wheel drive system.
1996 Porsche 911 GT1
Class: LM GT1
Racing driver: Hans-J. Stuck, Bob Wollek, Thierry Boutsen

Plenty of bad luck and double victory
The 911 GT1 ’96 was newly designed and very fast. Only minor technical problems and off-track excursions prevented the overall victory. A double victory was achieved in the top GT class.
2009 Porsche RS Spyder
Class: LMP 2
Racing driver: Casper Elgaard, Kristian Poulsen, Emmanuel Collard

Small and fast
With a lead of 14 laps over the second-placed car, the Porsche RS Spyder of the Danish Essex Team won the class, beating numerous prototypes with more displacement.
2013 Porsche 911 RSR
Class: LM GTE Pro
Racing driver: Marc Lieb, Richard Lietz, Romain Dumas

Strong debut
The first Le Mans outing of the new 911 RSR: crazy weather, a cloudburst and double victory against three strong works teams in the highest GT class.
2018 Porsche 911 RSR
Class: LM GTE Pro
Racing driver: Kévin Estre, Laurens Vanthoor, Michael Christensen

All hopes on the GT
An exciting battle in the highest GT class. 17 race cars from five manufacturers were in the starting line-up. After 24 hours, the 911 RSR cars of the works team achieved a double victory.
