This year, 2018, Porsche will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Although the official date for the registration of the first car, 356-001, is on 8 June, Porsche Road & Race will be bringing you a snapshot into the timeline along the road of these seven decades. Starting in 1998, six milestones covering seven decades will bring us back to when it all started, on 8 June 1948.

Track back with us as we look at what was happening on the race track with Porsche’s race cars. The Le Mans 24 Hour race is the highlight of the endurance racing calendar, and there are even those Porsche enthusiasts who would argue that it is the highlight of the global motorsport calendar period.
