Seven classic Porsche racing liveries that will make you weak at the knees

For the last two seasons, the factory Porsche 911 RSRs liveries have hardly been inspiring. However, Weissach’s motorsport creations have been known to sport some stunning colour schemes, as these seven iconic designs prove. Which is your favourite?

7) Flying Lizard

They may no longer run Porsche 911s but, Flying Lizard’s livery during the mid-2000s and early-2010s was eye-catching, unmistakable and a little bit menacing.

6) Mobil 1
Mobil 1 GT1

There are many factory Porsche designs that people remember however, the late-Nineties Mobil 1 livery doesn’t always spring to mind, despite its Le Mans-winning heritage.

5) Rothmans
Rothmans SC RS

One of the iconic Porsche liveries. Often associated with the Group C 956/962 prototypes, the Rothmans blue, white, red and gold looked awesome of the 911 SC RS rally car.

4) Falken Tires
Falken RSR

Falken are stalwarts of the US endurance scene, and their vibrant teal-and-blue colour scheme has endured across both the 997 GT3 RSR and the latest 991 RSR.

3) Wally’s Jeans

Kremer Racing have run many enduring liveries but the quirky Wally’s Jeans RSR from 1974 sticks long in the memory. It’s a clever piece of branding and looks great too.

2) Martini Racing
Martini 935

Think Porsche, think Martini. First seen on a Porsche 917 in 1970, the Martini stripes have graced numerous Weissach creations, topping the podium at a plethora of prestigious races.

1) Brumos
Brumos 934:5

The Florida-based team has been racing Porsches since the Sixties. The simple blue-and-red stripes, bereft of sponsors’ logos, are pure and classy, yet still hugely iconic.
