#Project 917

Any petrolhead will know about the legend that is the Porsche 917 whether from the racing successes to playing the staring role in Steve McQueen's 1970 movie Le Mans.
Our passion for this car is all the above but also we believe the Porsche 917 is one of the most powerfully beautiful cars ever made and we want to build one!

At the heart of Project 917 is a passionate team dedicated to building a contemporary road & track version of the iconic Porsche 917.
Project 917 will ultimately be a socially connected & crowdfunded initiative with our goal to find and nurture the potential careers of young engineering talent.  

This is how we will do this...

By inspiring young engineering talent to be at the heart of an exciting automotive project and surrounded by the best automotive skills in the country.

The 917 will be built by young engineers under the guidance and in collaboration with the finest professional automotive skills available in the UK.
