Daniel Soares continues to offer an inspiring perspective on the small facets of the automotive community in his artistic documentaries from around the country. This month, the Soares Film team has brought us a beautiful look into the driving force behind The Race of Gentlemen.
There are some that suggest that Porsche’s 924 isn’t worthy of the crest. Luckily for them, this 924 GTR isn’t sporting one. On the other hand, this GTR suggests they couldn’t be more wrong. As Porsche’s counterpart to the 908 for the 1980 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GTR houses a 375-horsepower inline-four. Having finished in 6th place, it didn’t do too poorly, either.

I’m a sedan guy, through and through. There’s something special about a 4-door “sports” car, or at minimum, a 4-door touring car with a bit of bite, and if you ask me, it fits the BMW ethos rather well. With that said, there are a handful of cars I’ve always preferred the coupe version of: namely the E36, and in this case, the E30.

If there’s one company known for their Le Mans wins, its Porsche, and deservedly so. Following an immense string of victories in the 1980s with the 956 and 962, and a final victory with the 962 in 1994, Porsche was ready to move on to a new chassis. As recent as “1996” may sound, it’s more than 20 years ago – thankfully, the team at Porsche documented the process, and we’re able to look back and follow along. Speakers up, as always.
