I’m not sure if you’ve seen the latest batches of pictures that Porsche recently released of the 918 prototype, you were likely scratching your head. Why? Because Porsche initially painted this forthcoming supercar in a bland black-and-white paint pattern based upon the historic Martini Racing colors. Well that color experiment went belly up. Porsche repainted. Check out the Martini Racing inspired color choice. Here is a sneak peek, and you’re in some very good luck…
This photo was taken by a Porsche photographer at the Nürburgring racetrack, where it was doing many grueling laps. Porsche has been pretty much mum about releasing technical information about the 918 recently. Us car enthusiasts can only wait until September 18, 2013 (9/18!), when Porsche will release this lovely car. Here’s to hoping that Porsche will do what Ford did with the GT: Replicate the old factory racing livery colors on the production 918.
P.S. Is it just me, or does this possibly herald a new era of Porsche competing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans? I encourage you to watch the Steve McQueen movie, Le Mans. I also encourage you to remember the following thought; I’d LOVE for my loyal subscribers to buy me one when it comes out (it is expected to go for approximately $1.4)… I don’t want to disappoint you by not showing you a picture of one of the historic Porsche 917’s:

Candler – LOVE this car – I will contribute toward the purchase – let me know when you have raised almost all the money !
I’ll start saving pennies as well!
Just write a big check once you’ve got about $350,000…
Your eyes are bigger than your bank account but not as big as your heart.
Keep dreaming and don’t wake up
I think that all the ice cream that you eat is making you say all this mushy stuff!
….and just what is it that’s wrong with mushy????
Very cool car! I want one also. All you have to do is hold your breath for just over a year, and maybe your wish will come true.
Good luck with that (unless you’re six feet under…)!
Well, with a lot of patience, and the support of your “loyal subscribers”, you should have one when you’re about 75. You know what I say, ‘ it’s always good to have a goal’.
If you work on your persuasive skills, you could convince all of your readers to pass the hat and pool their money to buy you a new Porsche.
Good try – I’ll try painting My Baby…
You say it is $1.4 – cool! I’ll give you five bucks, you buy three of them, send me 2 and keep one and the change!
I think that I’ll need a bit more than five bucks!
No problem Candler. Just let me know where you want it delivered!!,
Your adoring Granny
I’d like it delivered to Sonoma Raceway, ASAP!
