Porsche Racing Heritage

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman

“Porsche” and “racing” are two words that have been synonymous with one another for decades. Porsche heritage runs deep in motorsports, and it should come as no surprise that Porsche ranks among the most successful automakers in the history of auto racing.

If you’re curious about Porsche racing, take a moment to learn more about Porsche race cars and Porsche race track features with our team at Fred Lavery Porsche Company near Rochester Hills.

Porsche 911 Success

From their humble beginnings in the early 1960s all the way to today, the Porsche 911 remains one of the single most successful race cars ever built. When you find a Porsche on a race track, you can bet it’s likely a Porsche 911. After all, it’s impossible to talk about Porsche race track success without mentioning the legendary 911.

While it’s hard to put an exact number on total race wins, experts at our Farmington Hills-area Porsche dealership estimate that Porsche 911 models have taken home over 30,000 victories over the years and counting.

24-Hours of Le Mans Wins

Boasting a massive 19 overall wins at the legendary 24-Hours of Le Mans, Porsche holds more wins at the legendary annual endurance race than any other manufacturer since the race was first held in 1923. From its most recent domination in the Porsche 919 prototype, to the turbocharged Porsche 956 monster of the 1980s, there’s no question that Porsche race track performances are consistently impressive. Of course, you don’t become one of the most successful manufacturers in all of motorsports by accident.

Race-Derived Porsche Features

Naturally, it’s only fitting that Porsche race cars pass down their race-proven engineering and technology to the road cars you can find in our new model inventory. But what are some specific Porsche race track-oriented features can you find outfitted to your Porsche road car?

One of the most relevant examples is the Porsche PDK transmission, which is now commonly used throughout the Porsche model lineup for nearly imperceptible gear changes. This transmission was originally developed strictly for use on the track. Porsche race cars passed this feature down to models like the Porsche 911, Porsche Panamera, and the Porsche 718 line.

Furthermore, all-wheel drive engineering, turbocharger tuning, Porsche Active Stability Management (PASM), and countless other features have been developed for Porsche race track use, only to be refined and equipped to Porsche road cars.
