Vehicle: 1970 Porsche 917K - Version 1.0
Platform: GT Legends
Date of release: July 23, 2009
The Porsche 917 made its first appearance in 1969. It was powered by
a Flat-12 engine. Originaly the 917's chassis was from the 908, but
strengthened and enlarged for the 12 cylinger engine with a displacement
In 1970, Porsche, with teams like Gulf-Wyer and Martini took 917 to a
new level of performance, stalking LeMans and sweeping the field 1-2-3.
Wyer's engineer John Horsmann had the idea to increase downforce at the
expense of drag. A new wedge-shaped tail was molded with aluminium sheets
taped together! This new short tail gave the 917 much needed stability.
The plastic engine intake cover had already been removed...
The new version was called 917K (Kurzheck).
RMi presents to the community our interpetation of the cars as they ran
in late 1969 through early 1971, featuring not only the original 4.5L but
also the big 630+hp 5.0L flat 12. These brutal racers are outfitted not
only in 4 and 5 speed versions, but also sport differing aerodynamic
treatments visualy matched to the cars. While trying to be as technicaly
accurate as possible, we are sure some specification do not match exactly
or are not realistic, this is either not intentional or was purposefully
tweaked to help with the final simulated driving experience.
