Porsche has released a new 90-minute film titled Endurance that outlines the extreme stress that Porsche's drivers, engineers and team managers undergo during the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the 24-hour race on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife that happens just one week later.

British Director James Routh, famous for his award-winning Formula One documentary Drive to Survive, accompanied the team, technicians and drivers for 25 days to make the film.

Endurance, directed by British director James Routh, showcases the raw stresses of endurance racing 
From Le Mans preparations to test drives in Italy and a private test day after the endurance race in Germany's Eifel region, the film offers spectacular driving scenes enhanced by candid impressions from Pascal Zurlinden, Director of Factory Motorsport.

Porsche Works Drivers Kevin Estre, Michael Christensen, Laurens Vanthoor and Matt Campbell also give spectators an inside look at the unique stresses of the largest racing events of the year. The seasoned motor racing engineer Luca Masse also describes the everyday challenges of a Porsche Race Engineer.

The documentary Endurance also showcases what endurance racing really involves: Deprivation, stress, emotion and boundless dedication and passion of all involved. The main protagonists are not just the vehicles - in this case the Porsche 911 RSR and the 911 GT3 R - but also the people. Dealing with tense situations and setbacks on the racetrack are as unfiltered and realistically portrayed as the comments from the family of a young racing driver are on the dangers and life at the limit.
