Porsche with retro design at Le Mans

The Porsche GT Team will enter this years 24 hours race at Circuit de la Sarthe with two different liveries on their FIA World Endurance Championship cars.

To celebrate their 70 years sports car anniversary, they team has chosen to paint #91 and #92 with some classic colours from their previous Le Mans winners.

#91 will have blue white and gold paint, like it was known from the Rothmans sponsor colours, that the team raced and won with in the 80’s. They won Le Mans with these colours in 1982 and 83 with a Porsche 956 C, and then again 1986 and 187 with the 962 C model. The team also won the Paris Dakar in a Porsche 959 in 1986 with the same paint scheme.

Car number 92 will have the slightly more special livery called Pink Pig, that Porsche raced on a 917/20 at the Le Mans race in 1971.

The fire suits of the teams will match the cars design, so will their crash helmets.

To give the perfect retro-look, Porsche has opted to sticker up the pit garage with brick wall design, so it looks like a garage from the good old days.

Porsche #93 and #94 will compete in this year’s race in the traditional white, red and black colours, which Porsche usually races in during the FIA WEC and the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The new, old colours will be on track for the first time tomorrow Sunday, when the test day will be run.
