The winner, the 917 Concept was designed to continue Porsche�s tradition, because, as we see, it inherited Le Mans 24 Hours winner�s car name. Its looks are great even though the conventional spoiler have been replaced by two wings, making the car more aggressive.

Everything was designed to reduce the weight of the car: even the dashboard, the steering wheel and the pedals were made of carbon fiber, not to speak about the bodywork. The rims are made of a mixture of carbon and magnesium. A camera positioned under the roof, has replaced the conventional rear mirrors.
