Le Mans Porsche liveries
Le Mans is just around the corner for another edition, this year’s the 87th one.
Every year there is always a lot of buzz about the liveries at Le Mans.
Then, just before the test weekend, team by team, they start presenting them to the public!
No exception for Porsche. Last year they achieved a double victory with traditional Le Mans liveries of the 1970s and 1980s. While the #91 car was decked out in the iconic blue-and-white finish with red and gold stripes, reminding us all of the Rothmans sponsor colours of the 80’s, the #92 car (winner of Le Mans 2018!) adopted the famous “Pink Pig” design of the 917/20 from 1971. 🐽
This year, they celebrate an early manufacturers’ world championship title and want to honour US successes. Both #91 and #92 WEC 911 RSR got their red stripes replaced by a gold finish and got the world champion logo on their roofs.
The #93 and #94, the identical models from the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, will race carrying the legendary Brumos Racing Team livery. Last rounds at Daytona and Sebring already delighted everyone with these white, red and blue liveries and now it’s time to celebrate its debut in Europe, specially at Le Mans, where the Brumos Racing Team scored 3 overall victories in the past.
Neverthless, it’s not all about the Porsche GT Team. Porsche Team Project 1, in the GTE Am category, also came up with an original and really cool livery this year. Second Skin Design is a new Porsche Digital product which together with artist Richard Phillips, graphic designer Andy Blackmore and Team Project 1 developed the livery for 2019 Le Mans. It’s a stunning work and it won’t go unnoticed for sure!
Counting the days down to see those beauties live!
