Driving The Porsche 917/30 At Goodwood’s Hillclimb Course

Despite being 50 years old, the formidable Porsche 917/30 still boasts a power-to-weight ratio that rivals that of a modern Formula 1 car. With approximately 1200bhp generated by a 5.4-liter flat-12 engine equipped with two turbochargers, all contained within an 800kg car, the 917/30 proves its prowess on the road.

Andrew Frankel from The Intercooler had the remarkable opportunity to take the wheel of a Porsche 917/30 at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed, offering us a first-hand experience of what it’s like to drive this legendary Porsche racing car on the challenging Goodwood hillclimb course.
