    Hollywood star, Porsche fan, race driver: Follow Patrick Dempsey and his team partners Patrick Long and Joe Foster to idyllic France where getting ready for the legendary 24 Hours literally turns into a 24/7 job.

    Le Mans, the 1971 movie, the whole thing (1hr 49min).

    Nice find Steve. It's a shame such races don't happen anymore.

    Success in endurance racing demands an extraordinary car and superhuman driving, but winning the world's toughest and most famous endurance race repeatedly is the making of legends.

    Such is undoubtedly true of Jacky Ickx, who drove to victory for Porsche in the 24 Heures du Mans not once, but four times. Winning in 1976,v1977 and 1981 in the Porsche 936, and in 1982 driving the 956, Ickx helped establish the Porsche dominance of the event that would continue throughout the 1980s.

    Here he reflects on a car with which he shares his legendary status, and looks forward to Porsche's return to endurance racing next year - and the remaking of a legend.

    Apparently the noises you'll hear emanating from Porsche's P1 contender for Le Mans, etc, come from a V4 engine.

    Way back when I had a couple of SAAB 96's with a V-4 somehow I think

    that is where the similarity ends!

    Terrifying (to me) to watch the steering wheel in this video.
