#23 Porsche 917 KH Coupé
Peter Falk sits on the sill of the famous #23 Porsche 917 KH Coupé, winner of the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours. On this occasion it is located in the Porsche Museum Workshop on 28 June 2010

In a 34-year career at Porsche, the influence of Peter Falk – Porsche’s enduring engineer, can be found throughout the air-cooled and transaxle model ranges, and extends even to the 986/996 generation. He was also team manager for many of Porsche’s Le Mans efforts and oversaw the company’s rise from class winner to crushing overall victory in 1970/71, repeating this performance through the 1980s.

Peter Falk is one of those seminal Porsche figures who seem to have been around forever and it is hard to imagine that he retired from Weissach 24 years ago. Now in his ninth decade, he is still keen to participate in local Porsche functions and is always a highly popular personality at classic events.
