LE MANS AND 911 DOCUMENTARIES GO LIVE ON AMAZON
The internet is alive with the sound of Porsche. First up, Amazon Prime has released an allnew six-part documentary series, Le Mans: Racing is everything. Both Porsche and its drivers feature prominently
The series is produced by British documentary production company New Black Films and is directed by Emmy-nominated James Erskine. "We’ll raise the veil on the pressure that racing cars to the limit puts on the teams and drivers, in a unique human-interest driven series that will take a 360 look at what it takes to participate, organise and ultimately try and win what is unquestionably the toughest race in motorsport,” Erskine said. "It’s a great privilege to bring this to screen with such strong collaborators as Amazon Prime Video. This is racing as you’ve never seen it before."
The documentary looks to have a bit of everything, from historical context to in-depth contemporary insight. The usual suspects pop up including former Porsche race ace and F1 hotshoe Mark Webber. Plenty of Porsches from the great race are there to be appreciated in high definition detail, too. The full series is available now to stream for Amazon subscribers via Amazon Prime Video. Why not get in the endurance spirit and binge watch the whole thing?
While we're talking Amazon Prime, another two part documentary focusing exclusively on the Porsche 911 has also popped up on the streaming service. The Porsche 911 Story, as it is known, is a little clunky in production terms. But there's oodles of 911 footage old and new in the two-part documentary along with some interesting technical titbits and numerous interviews with owners and various official Porsche reps. Point your PC, Mac, tablet or HDTV at amazon.com and get watching.
