The 917-30 is a development of the 917-10. It was raced by the Pensky team and regarded as totoally superior to the V8 competition in the Can-Am series in the early 70s. At the time McLaren was dominating Can-Am, but Porsche 917-10 ended that in 1972 and further on with the 917-30 in 1973. It completely blew the american V8 competition of the track. The IMSA executives didn't like it and they banned turbocharging and rewrote the rules in favor of the stock american V8 for the 1974 season.

This car was Porsche's most powerfull car ever. It used the same flat 12 as in the 917 KH (Kurtzheck) but with added twin turbos, which hiked the effect up to 1100 hp (From 610 hp) or up to 1600 hp for sprintraces later in the season. Today it's only used for special occasions and shows like Goodwood Festival of Speed.
