Why is the ignition lock on the Porsche left of the steering wheel?

The position of the ignition lock can be traced back to the beginnings of the infamous Le Mans 24-hour race in France. At the start of Le Mans, which was introduced in 1925, it was common practice for the participating racers to stand a few metres away from their cars before the start and run to the car by signal. To ensure that the starting procedure could be carried out as quickly as possible and no time was wasted, Porsche engineers finally installed the start button to the left of the steering wheel. In this way, the racing drivers were able to start the car as soon as they got in. Le Mans has not been started in this way since 1971, but Porsche kept the position of the ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel. Now it is legendary and always causes confusion for Porsche newcomers at the beginning. By the way: There is also the story that in those days, due to a shortage of material (cable), the starter was put on the left side to save costs. Only later during the races they realized that this was also an advantage. But let’s face it, the Le Mans story is much cooler, isn’t it?
