Of course, it is self-evident to say that Porsche has a huge involvement in motorsports. Racing and Porsche are basically thick as thieves! You probably have seen some speeding Porsche liveries around the track of the Le Mans Series or any other racing class where Porsche is involved. The most iconic Porsche liveries are known to mankind for ages and comes in all different styles and colours. In this article I want to highlight 3 magnificent Porsche liveries which you must have seen!
#3 The pink pig
The Pink Pig livery has its history since 1971 when Porsche participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the Porsche 917/20. Due to the special livery, which is based on the butcher’s parts of a pig, the car received nicknames like ‘Big Berta’, ‘Truffle Hunter’ and of course the most common nickname; ‘Pink Pig’.
In 2018 Porsche decided to honour the famous livery by using the ‘Pink Pig’ livery on one of the two fabric cars who were going to participate in the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans
#2 The ‘Hippie’ Porsche
The psychedelic long-tailed Porsche 917. The birth of this livery took place during Le Mans week in 1970, where 1,500 spray cans were used to paint the purple colour with the fluorescent green swirls. Because of its colours, the livery was also named as the Hippie-Porsche. So even racing couldn’t ignore the free love movement of the 60s and 70s.
#1 Brumos Porsche
You will not see this livery very often nowadays because the Burmos racing team ceased to exist in 2013. The livery is not that special in itself. The cars are always white and have a red-blue striped hood. What makes the livery so special is that the racing team has been driving this livery since 1971. They have also always used Porsches.
