With Innovative Technologies
Among the cars on the starting grid of the 1986 24 Hours of Le Mans was a monumental machine entered by the Porsche factory team. This car, the Porsche 961, was an evolved racing version of the Porsche 959 sports car, which featured advanced mechanisms including an innovative computer-controlled full-time four wheel-drive system. The 961 was fitted with these same technological features as well as a 680hp 2,847cc four-valve DOHC twin-turbocharged flat-six engine similar to the works team’s Porsche 962C in the Group C category. With that year’s Paris-Dakar Rally winner Rene Metge and his teammate Claude Ballot-Lena at the wheel, the 961 went on to take overall 7th place finish, placing it amongst the Group C pure racers.
