Why is the ignition lock on the left of the steering wheel in a Porsche?
The position of the ignition lock can be traced back to the beginnings of the infamous 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France. At the Le Mans start, which was introduced in 1925, it was customary for the participating racers to stand a few meters away from their car before the start clearance and run to the car by signal. In order to ensure that the starting procedure was carried out as quickly as possible and that no time was wasted, Porsche engineers eventually installed the start button to the left of the steering wheel. In this way, the race drivers could start the car as soon as they got in. Since 1971, Le Mans no longer starts in this way, but Porsche stuck with the position of the ignition switch 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 at that time, due to a shortage of material (cables), the starter was placed on the left side to save costs. Only later, during the races, it was discovered that this was also an advantage. But honestly, the Le Mans story is much cooler, isn’t it?
