Porsche with special Le Mans livery

Porsche will once again run a special livery for the 2023 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The German car manufacturer has done it in previous years – including 2018, when they won with the classic “Pink Pig” livery in GTE Pro.

They will compete in the Hypercar category with three works cars in total. Not only has it been 100 years since the very first 24 Hours of Le Mans, but it’s also been 75 years since Porsche made their first car, under their own brand.

The cars will have 15 different stripes, which all represent some memories of previous Le Mans cars.

The pink car from 1971/2018 is included, as well as the 1970 Hippie car, mixed up with some Martini, Rothmans and a bit of Salzburg colors, in addition to some stripes from the Porsche RS Spyder from 2006-2008.

All three cars will look the same, except for the colors of the engine cover fin, which will be black on #5, white on #6, and red on #75.

Porsche Penske Motorsport #5 will have the FIA WEC full season drivers Dane Cameron, Michael Christensen, and Frederic Makowiecki behind the wheel, as will #6 in the shape of Andre Lotterer, Kevin Estre, and Laurens Vanthoor. Porsche 963 #75 will be a mix up of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship drivers Nick Tandy, Mathieu Jaminet, and Felipe Nasr sharing the car. Matt Campbell will be the reserve driver across all three cars, in case something prevents a driver from participating.

This year’s edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be run on 10-11 June.
