Porsche Motorsports at Weissach, known in German as 'die Porsche Rennabteilung Weissach' is where racing legends were and are still born. Mention the town name of Weissach to any petrolhead and they come alive with the excitement of innovative motorsport ideas.
Extract from Porsche :
Porsche created the test track in Weissach in the early 1960s. Construction began in 1961. The Skid Pad opened in 1962, and the off-road course followed in 1967. The CanAm course was built in 1971 around the Skid Pad, as was the mountain course with narrow curves. The R&D buildings to power this progress were also being erected piece by piece at the same time. They have taken on a certain air of mystery, seemingly a distant place from which wondrous technology did and does emerge. The Weissach name stands for success on the racing track, and for the subsequent transfer of that technology from competition vehicles to seriesproduced models.
In 1970, it was the powerhouse 917, at the time developed with verve and style by a young engineer named Ferdinand Piëch, that claimed Porsche’s first overall victory at the “24 hours of Le Mans.” In 1972, in an effort to eke out even greater engine performance from its twelve-cylinder motor, the 917 was outfitted with two turbochargers . Valves were used to regulate the injected pressure and prevent an over-charge. One year later this technology was moved to series production, culminating in the famous 911 Turbo (930 series) first presented in 1973, which received further racing technology in form of an additional intercooler in 1977.
The Development Centre is always reinventing itself as well, staying abreast of the latest technology and scientific insights.
