The 83rd running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend is one that Porsche won’t forget in a hurry.
Having proven themselves ultra-competitive on their highly anticipated return to Circuit de la Sarthe in 2014, Porsche had long-time Le Mans dominator Audi in their sights for 2015, and they made their intentions very clear from qualifying, locking in first, second and third spots on the grid. The two German manufacturers swapped the lead multiple times over the course of the 24-hour long race, but ultimately the strength of Porsche’s performance and uncharacteristic reliability issues for Audi determined the outcome: 919 Hybrids first and second home, and Porsche’s 17th overall win. No other brand has won Le Mans so many times.
