Porsche Shows Off 70 Years of Supercars

Porshe Generations: Supercars shows off seven supercars marking 70 years of fast

  • Every Porsche supercar from GTS to GT2 RS in two minutes

  • Classic cars being driven the way they should be is epic in short film


Want to see every car that Porsche calls a supercar in one short video clip? Heck yeah, you do, and they’ve made it happen with a video posted to YouTube called Porsche Generations: Supercars.

It starts with the Carrera GTS of 1964, also known as the 904. A two-year model that was designed and built to replace the 718 in FIA GT class sports car racing. They made 106 for the road to meet homologation, and cars were built with flat-four, flat-six, and even flat-eights, all displacing 2.0L.

Next, the original Porsche 911 Turbo, the 930 that lived from 1975 to 1989. Starting with 234 hp and quickly working up, this was, when new, the fastest production car you could buy in Germany.

Then the 959. The 911 on steroids that brought all-wheel drive, massive rear wing, and unthinkable power to the supercar wars of the 1980s. Designed as a Group B racer, this beast is still one of the coolest looking performance cars of all time. And it’s still fast.

After that, Porsche’s supercar development speeds up. The 911 GT1 is the roadgoing version of the company’s Le Mans racer. Sharing basically only a badge and lights with a standard 911. The Carrera GT of 2004 is one of the company’s most iconic models. With a flyweight V10 behind the driver and knife-sharp reflexes. Next, the 918 Spyder from 2013, the company’s first hybrid-electric supercar offering new levels of speed and efficiency.

Finally, the 911 GT2 RS. A 911 taken to the extreme for road racing and track day use as well as incredible road car performance.

Whatever comes next, we’re sure it’ll be impressive. But watching static and moving footage of the company’s 70 years of supercar history is a great way to fill a few minutes.
