    Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    This weekend I attended the 3rd edition of Le Mans Classic and it was absolutely fantastic...

    We were able to see dozens of Porsche racing cars on the track. This is including 2 917, many 904, 1 910, dozens of 2.7l RS, 3.0 RS, tons of 935 of all kind, a lot of 356 , few 914.6

    There was also an auction were Christies sold a very rare 911 SC RS and a 924 GT RS.

    Porsche Club de France organized a massive gathering of all Porsche models. At some point, there was 1,000 Porsche cars parked together .... All models were present ... it was really a great experience.

    It was also possible to drive for 2 laps on the track. Driving "full blast" on "les Hunaudieres" straight is really great....

    I would definitely advise all Classic car enthusiasts to attend this meeting.

    Next edition in 2008....

    I'll post some pics ASAP.

    I'd love to see a photo of the 924 if you got one.

    I'm sorry but I have no pic of the 924 GT RS.

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    Driving carefully on "les Hunaudieres" straight ...

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    Eric, those pictures are phenomenal. Thank you very much! This would be an amazing event to attend. Those cars look very well taken care of and it is neat to see them being driven. That 936 looks sooo low.

    I believe the car at the top of page 2 may have been mis-labeled. It looks like a 917 K with the "1970" tail (higher deck, no side fins). Also, this particular car appears to have the extra window above the windscreen to give the drivers a better view on the banking at Daytona.

    Anyway, I'm not meaning to nit-pick, I really enjoy your pictures!

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    Cool pics!

    Thanks so much for sharing them.


    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche


    You're 100% right, my apologies, it is a 917 K and not a "regular" 917.

    There was also a whole bunch of Ford GT 40 ....

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    Tres belle photos! Thx for sharing them.

    Next I'll go there for sure!

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche

    awesome pics Did you snap any pics of Carrera 2 Speedster ? I owned a one off Amazon Green RHD C2 Speedster 10 yrs ago and it was my first love

    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche


    There was 3-4 Carrera 2 Speedster. I'll try to find a pic.


    Re: Le Mans Classic, 917, 904, Carrera 6, ... Over 1,000 Porsche
