Already a month after its completion, the Porsche 356 No. 1, the first Porsche at all, won its class in a street race in Innsbruck, Austria. In 1951, the Porsche 356 Alu-Coupe achieved the first Le Mans class victory with impressing lap averages of 145 km/h. This time marks the beginning of pure motor sports passion. Porsche lists more than 28.000 race victories in almost every motor sports series worldwide.
Nevertheless, Porsche not only builds sports cars in order to win races, but also in order to gain development know how that might be incorporated into the evolution of production vehicles. For Porsche, customer sports and the drive to innovation rank first.
With the start of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany in 1990, Porsche realized the idea of an own racing series around the sports car legend 911 thus also strengthening customer sports. In this racing series as well as in the 7 further international Porsche Carrera Cups and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, Porsche offers absolutely equal opportunities. Teams and race drivers compete under the same technical conditions.
However, Porsche develops race cars and prototypes not only for its own but also for further internationally significant racing series. The highest goal is to win races and to learn for the development of production vehicles. Porsche develops competitive race cars to make Porsche customer teams successful. And Porsche supports its customers at the race track technically and organizationally. Porsche Motorsport brings the myths of the Porsche brand to the race tracks.
With the Porsche works drivers, Porsche Motorsport supports the customer teams with professional drivers for professional race cars and at the same time forwards offspring drivers. Porsche stands for pure motor sports. With many victories and above all the whole fascination of automobile sports.

Porsche stamina in racing has been sustained for 50 years. The first 356 aluminum coupe had hardly left the workshop in the company's former Gmund headquarters in Austria, when Porsche cars began making headlines at national and international events. Today, GT racing enjoys a high priority at the Stuttgart-based company. But sportscars stand proudly in the glorious racing history, too, highlighted by 14 marques and team championships, nine sportscar drivers´ world titles and uncountable victories.
Porsche Motorsport Centre
After a construction time of just one year, the new motorsport centre of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG was completed in July 2006. 10,550 square metres (more than 113,500 square feet) located at Weissach are the crucial prerequisite in ensuring the continued competitiveness of Porsche vehicles in racing.The heart of Porsche Motorsport is made up of four buildings, which are connected via a light and transparent arched-roof construction. The facilities include workshops, race vehicle production, logistics centre and a terminal for trucks. There and in the affiliated office block 210 employees will be working.
The workshop facilities house separate areas for the servicing of Cup and customer race cars, for the RS Spyder prototype, the 911 GT3 RSR as well as for development projects. In the so-called “manufacture”, specialists construct limited numbers of racing sports cars and prototypes. Around 20,000 different parts are stored in the logistics site, which for example also delivers for series cars like the 911 GT3 and the 911 GT3 RS. At the terminal up to seven articulated lorries can dock at the same time and be loaded for the delivery to the race tracks.
Already the access road will fascinate motorsport enthusiasts: In the corners are typically cambered kerbs like those found on race circuits, as well as stacks of tyres and brand advertising which lend a real motorsport atmosphere.
