Is This a Hint of What Will Come?

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…

Porsche 918 Spyder in Martini Racing Colors

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:   Fonds d'ecran: Martini Porsche 917K Le Mans 1971
