This poster was created by Porsche to celebrate their drivers' win at the 1970 Rennen Nurburgring 1000km Formula One race. The winning race car team was comprised of drivers Vic Elford and Kurt Ahrens, Jr. The Nurburgring racetrack is located in Nurburg, which in 1970 was located in West Germany. The Nordschleife "North loop" track would have been used for this race, which was built in the 1920s around the village and medieval castle of Nurburg and surrounded by mountains. This track is considered one of the hardest and most dangerous routes in European professional car racing. It is the traditional host of the German Grand Prix and is regularly used for Formula One racing.
This poster was created by Atelier Strenger - Reichert, an art studio known for their clean lines and enticing color combinations. At the helm of the firm was Erich Strenger (1922 - 1993), who helped form the identity of Porsche across all marketing efforts. Strenger worked for Porsche for over 30 years.
Ferdinand Porsche began his famed automotive business in Germany in 1931, and it originally started as a parts manufacturer that supplied Volkswagen.

Ever since, Porsche has been known on the racing circuit as well as a high performance sports and luxury car for the consumer markets.
