The 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 26th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 21 and 22 June 1958. It was also the fifth round of the 1958 World Sports Car Championship.

Ferrari had 10 cars start the race with only two finishing but one, a TR 58 (250TR) was the winner driven by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien. An Aston Martin finished 2nd, and 3rd went to a Porsche RS/K with only 1600cc.
