Ugh Why Do I Want this Porsche Vinyl Made of Porsche Tires So Much?

In its continuing effort to liquidate its erstwhile Le Mans team, Porsche has turned the tires that the 919 Hybrid ran its last Le Mans on into vinyl records.

The records tell the story of Porsche’s gilded history at the legendary endurance race and lasts only 24 minutes.

Just 200 of these records have been pressed and you can bid on them. Unfortunately, there’s no buy it now price, because Porsche will auction off the first 24 records for 24 hours on February 24.

Money raised during the auction will go to Loisirs Pluriel, a French charity that supports differently abled children across the country.

The record is divided into 24, roughly minute-long stories told by a variety of narrators. These include Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Hans-Joachim Stuck, Walter Rohrl, Chad McQueen, and more.


If you don’t have the presumed gobs of money these will cost—nothing Porsche is cheap—then you can listen to the recordings on Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube Music, Apple Music, Deezer, and Amazon Music. Or right below!

Apart from being a profoundly silly way to spend your money, it would also be a pretty great record to add to your collection and would fit in perfectly next to the collection of classic Road&Tracks and the old school racing posters that currently line the walls and fill the shelves of the garage I’ve been building in my dreams.
