The epic success of the Turbopanzer wouldn’t be possible if 917/10 hasn't given its best a year earlier. The L&M Can-Am Porsche 917/10 wearing L&M livery isn’t this powerful but it is good enough to block McLaren`s 5-year dominance in the Can-Am series. Powered by the 5-litre air-cooled flat-12, 917/10 is rated at 850 hp.

An exciting final to a racing story by Can-Am Porsche 917
The Can-Am Porsche 917/10 & 917/30, or Team Penske is the beautiful final to an epic 917 story. These two cars are not only the last but also the most powerful and even brutal version of the legendary car. There is something even better about this Can-Am Porsche poster - its author designed the vehicles' original liveries. His name is Terry Smith and we at Simply Petrol are extremely grateful for the opportunity to represent his work.
Can-Am Killer, Turbopanzer or just Porsche 917/30
Back in the day, Terry Smith creates the sleek L&M and Sunoco liveries for Team Penske Can-Am Porsches 917/10 and 917/30. These two cars force McLaren to leave the Can-Am series. Later on, the 917/30 receives the nickname Can-Am killer - it wins six out of eight competitions during season 1972.
To many, the Can-Am Porsche 917/30 in Sunoco livery is also the “Turbopanzer”. The car is a pure monster. Its turbocharged air-cooled flat-12 engine is capable of a power range between 1100 and 1580 hp, adjustable via dashboard controller. Weighing just 820 kg, Porsche 917/30 is powerful enough to weight ratio of 2000 hp per tonne. This is miraculous even for modern racing cars. 1
973 Can-Am Porsche makes sprint times like 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph (160 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, 0-200 mph (320 km/h) in 10.9 seconds, and top speed of more than 260 mph (420 km/h). Some motorsports historians claim that the Turbopanzer is the most powerful racing car ever driven on asphalt.
