919 Evo is a 1160 hp outlaw

Porsche calls the last evolution of the 919 as Evo, but it would be more appropriate to call it 919 Outlaw as it pumps out 853 kW peak power and therefore is not legal for any racing series.

50 years of Porsche 908

Ferdinand Piëch's brainchild, the 908 was the first Porsche that was engineered to use the maximum allowed 3-litre engine size. The longtail 908/01 LH Coupé was introduced in April 1968 at the Le Mans test day. The first version of the normally aspirated 8-cylinder boxer developed 257 kW. This was 50 YEARS AGO and tells everything about Piëch's genius. Then came the short tail 908/01 K Coupé. As Piëch was the fastest and in a good way craziest car designer and constructor, new versions just popped out one after another. The 908/02 K Spyder was shown to the press at snowy Hockenheimring in January 1969. Then came the 908 K Flunder Spyder that gave Steve McQueen his greatest motorsport result. He used the same car also at the 1970 Le Mans as the camera car for the dream film he directed. Another special longtail version for the high speed Le Mans track was the 908 LH Flunder Spyder. Different from the earlier versions was the 1970 908/03 Spyder that immediately took double victory at the 1970 Targa Florio. The final evolution of the 908 was the 1971 version 908/03 Spyder with 280 kW engine (still 3-litre, normally asiprated). Private racing teams continued to develop the 908/03's further and in 1975 some of the cars got 2.1-litre turbo engines straight from Porsche's racing department.

904 GTS

The homologation rules stipulated a minimum of 100 units and Porsche thought there weren’t that many racing customers, so the 904 was created as a street legal car.
