the_meco has released a fantastic new render of his impressive Porsche 917/30 for Assetto Corsa project.
Showing off the latest progress on the car model’s material side, the render shows the car in its legendary Sunoco livery as driven by Mark Donohue.
Based on the legendary Porsche 917K that saw success in Le Mans and various European endurance races, the 917/30 was Porsche’s take on the legendary open-rules Can-Am series.
The open-top 917/30 was powered by a mighty turbo-charged 5.4 liter flat-12 engine that provided up to 1100bhp in race trim and was theoretically capable to provide more than 1500bhp of power.
The 917/30 went on to dominate the Can-Am series until the car was highly restricted by the rules due to its excessive fuel consumption of up to 100 liters per 100 kilometers.
