The Porsche 917 was declared the sports car of the century. However, among its different versions, the Porsche 917/20 holds a very special position.

 

In cooperation with the French firm SERA, Porsche technicians constructed a mix of short and long-tail versions.

 

Imaginative paintwork ensured that the car would go down as the “Pink Pig”, “Big Bertha” or the ”Truffle Hunter” in Porsche annals. Porsche designer Anatole Lapine opted for a pink finish for this unique car, labelling its different parts appropriately.

 

Porsche caused a sensation at Le Mans in 1971 with the “Pink Pig”, winning the pre-race practice session in the completely untried vehicle. The drivers were Reinhold Joest and Willi Kauhsen (Martini Racing Team).

 

However, the 917/20 was disqualified in fifth position shortly before the end as a result of an accident.
