“Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.” Those are the words with which the inimitable Steve McQueen
summed up his unsurpassed passion for cars and racing. Of all of McQueen's legendary films, and of all the movies that have sought to capture the thrill of motor racing, Le Mans
remains the most iconic. In the 1971 cult classic, McQueen drove a Porsche 917 on the track and a classic 911 on the roads surrounding it, and in his personal life the movie star's love of the German sports cars is well documented.
