Porsche at Le Mans Quick Overview (1951-2019)
The following table is a visualization that shows Porsches among all the participants of Le Mans 24 hour race from 1951 to 2018. Green cells show cars that were classified and red cells show cars that were not classified or retired (technical problem, accident, not enough laps). The gray cells show the cars that were classified at the 1955 disastrous event - these results are not meaningful as some teams quit the race halfway to honor the dead. Porsches are marked with black text. The table has a lot of rows, so it is hard to read, but the most important information - the eras when Porsche was king or was not, can be seen by the distribution of finish places. Between 1951-2019, 814 Porsches have competed in Le Mans.
