Rate the Ride unofficial edition #16: Porsche 917LH


now I feel this is one of the lesser known 917 variants, but this is still a cool car none the less
this was basically an evolution of the 917L, which was built to reduce drag just to speed like a bullet on the long straights, since Le Mans during this time had lots of long straights
the handling was also improved, as the previous 917L had some questionable handling characteristics (basically it just had poor grip due to the aerodynamics of the car)
however, the car overall just wasn’t very successful compared to the 917K, so it was dropped for the 917/20, which would use design cues from both the 917K and the 917LH
even if it wasn’t very successful, it’s still one of my favorite 917 variants, as it honestly just looks very nice
