Porsche unveils seven 935 liveries as motorsport tribute

0

Porsche has developed seven new liveries for its latest 935 model. The design team, together with Grant Larson, the designer of the German OEM’s 935, designed the paint schemes to provide a new interpretation of a bygone motorsport era.

“The 935 that rolled off the production line included agate gray metal parts and bare off-tool carbon! But that’s not all,” said Grant Larson. “We have reinterpreted the various racing eras of the 935 using computer design programs, initially orientating ourselves geometrically on the design of the Martini racing version. However, we had to recreate all graphical data using virtual reality and finally apply it to the outer skin of the 935.”

The livery colours of the new Porsche 935 pay homage to the legendary Porsche Salzburg Team, which for the first time in 1970 secured overall victory for Porsche at the Le Mans 24 Hours, as well as numerous icons from private motor racing teams that drove the Porsche 935.

This includes the Gulf blue of John Wyer’s team; the Interscope design by Kremer Racing from the Indianapolis or Daytona circuit; the black and gold look from former cooperation with John Player Special; and the distinct red Momo version, which was successful for the first time in Giro Italy in 1979. There is also the Porsche 935 K3 of Kremer Racing and Dick Barbour as well as its sponsorship with the company Sachs. Finally, there is the turquoise design from heating manufacturer Vaillant.

“We can hardly wait to see the new 935 on race tracks around the world. Every single livery is very exciting and matches this unique Porsche perfectly,” added Larson.
