  • Porsche celebrates return to Le Mans [videos]

    Porsche is celebrating their return to Le Mans with a nostalgic look back at their previous victories.

    In 1970, Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood claimed the company's first win behind the wheel of a 917 short-tail. Porsche's success would continue for almost thirty years as Laurent Aiello, Stéphane Ortelli and Allan McNish took the company's 16th and last win in 1998 with the 911 GT1.

    As we have previously reported, Porsche will compete in the 2014 Le Mans endurance race with a new LMP1 sports prototype. The company hasn't revealed much about the car, but speculation suggests the vehicle could use hybrid technology to improve its fuel efficiency.
