The Porsche 917 was one of the most important cars in the company's history as it also managed to win the 1971 World Sports Car Manufacturer's Championship. The collaboration between these two names was a huge success especially during the 70s with cars such as the 911 and the 936 winning events like the 1973 Targa Florio and the 1976 & 1977 Le Mans 24 Hours, respectively.
