Description

The life can’t perform any better than mixing Porsche 911, Le Mans, and Martini Racing. On top, we have the magnificent story of road-car derivative racer beating some badass prototypes in the most grueling motorsports competition in the world. This magnificent 1974 Porsche 911 RSR Turbo art is also telling the story of Porsche`s turbocharging commitment from its very beginning, which, by the way, is shared with the legendary Porsche 917.

Back in 1974 when Le Mans was dominated by Matra and Ferrari officially left endurance racing. This was the year when Porsche entered their first 911 RSR car into racing. And it was the first ever turbocharged car competing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The competition was dominated by Matra prototypes until 10:00 AM when the leading car transmission failed. It was fixed by Porsche mechanics because it was developed by Porsche. Meanwhile, their factory prepared Porsche 911 RSR Turbo 2.1 lost fifth gear, causing 40 seconds slower lap times. The Matra`s transmission was fixed unlike the Porsche`s which wasn’t so easy to work on because of the basic differences between road-derived and prototype cars. Henri Pescarolo and Gerard Larrousse won the 24 Heures in 1974 with their V12 Matra-Simca MS670C. This was the third consecutive win for Matra. And its last, the retirement announcement was made at the end of the season. The second place was for Gijs van Lennep and Herbert Muller and their 6-cylinder, turbocharged engine Porsche 911 RSR 2.1, beating few more 12-cylinder prototypes.

Few weeks after its significant achievement at 1974 Le Mans, Porsche presented their first mass production Turbo car – 911 Turbo (930) with which the 911 would explore entire new realms of performance.

Now you can make yours the story of Porsche 911 RSR Turbo 2.1 and its impressive 1974 Le Mans success as beautiful artwork, created by Evan DeCiren.

Evan DeCiren was born and raised in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the humble family of a superbike mechanic. Naturally, he spent a lot of time in the camper of his father team Honda HRC during various competitions across Europe. Evan has developed a great affinity for comic art and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a designer. And succeeded in a spectacular way.

“I was always into comics – starting with the classic “Mickey Mouse” to the “Japanese Manga”. In ’96 when we went with the whole family to spend a month of our summer vacation being guests to a friend of my father who was Honda FCC engineer. The Japanese culture from here on will become an inspiration in my personal growth”, remembers Evan.

His story is also interesting because he has both mechanical and illustrator degrees. Think of him as the guy capable for both fixing and drawing vehicles. Initially, his comics` studies were influenced by the Japan manga comic style but latter he found inspiration in the design works of Mignola, Miller and Risso. They had helped Evan to form his unique and distinctive style.
