This is a truly lavish car art print - together with the classic Porsche 917 Gulf livery you get a Le Mans quote by Steve McQueen too. The artist behind this racing poster is Ankur Singh.

Porsche 917 in Gulf livery is the ultimate poster car

Few racing cars are as notorious as the 917. It is extremely quick and also reliable enough to secure the first overall Porsche victory at Le Mans in 1970. The success is repeated in 1971. This is how Porsche 917 in Gulf livery becomes an icon starring in the Le Mans movie. Seen as boring and plotless by many, the film is a true masterpiece for any petrol head.

The rewards of risk-taking

Ferdinand Piech, the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, is the leading figure behind the development of 917. He sees an opportunity in a sudden regulation change by CSI which reduces the minimum production for sports car homologation from 50 to 25 vehicles. The businessman manages to get approval for a new sports prototype that can win Le Mans. Porsche's team manages to design, engineer and produce the new 917 vehicle in just ten months. Thanks to its unique flat 12 cylinder air-cooled engine the new Porsche gets to the top of all motorsports rankings. The risky move by Piech pays off.

The first tests of 917 aren't very promising as its drivers evaluate it as unstable at high speeds. This feedback leads to significant changes in the tail of the car. The drag coefficient needs to be kept low while downforce is high for the Mulsanne straight. The long tail and the short tail Porsches are born.
