2008 Porsche RS Spyder
In 2005 Porsche developed the RS Spyder entirely in-house to meet LMP2 (Le Mans Prototype 2) category rules. As a privateer (non-factory) class, LMP2 was off limits to Porsche directly. A partnership with Penske Motorsport offered a solution, with Porsche maintaining exposure and Penske making a triumphant return to racing. Over three seasons, RS Spyders delivered 24 class wins and 11 overall wins, in addition to winning the manufacturers, drivers and team championships all three years.
