A 911 S 2.7 coming off the production line on 3 June is the 250,000th Porsche since the beginning of production in 1948.

In spring, the Porsche 928 is unveiled to the public as a luxurious high-performance sports car. In addition to a V8 light-alloy engine, aluminium chassis and lane-correcting “Weissach rear axle”, Porsche also breaks fresh ground with the body design of the 928, under the leadership of Chief Designer Anatole Lapine.

As well as defending its title at the International Championship for Makes in the Porsche 935, the company chalks up another victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a 936 driven by Jacky Ickx, Jürgen Barth and Hurley Haywood. Specially designed for the small division of the German Racing Championship (for vehicles with an engine capacity of up to 2 litres), the 935/2.0 model affectionately known as “Baby” proves that Porsche can be victorious in more than just the large displacement classes. At the Hockenheimring, Jacky Ickx outclasses the competition with a half-lap lead.
