In 1986, Porsche dominated the Group B rally class with their newly designed 959, taking both first and second in that year’s Paris Dakar Rally. Now, London’s Ink Production Studio has commemorated the legendary racer with their ‘Plain Body’ poster series showing the race ready 959 in its raw form.

Originally, the Porsche cars that competed in the 1986 Dakar Rally were clad in full factory race drab, styled in Rothmans Racing signature blue, gold and red with a white top. Ink wanted to highlight the amazing design and engineering work that created the famed car by removing the sponsor’s stickers and showcasing the auto in plain white against a white background, letting the car speak for itself. Since this would have been a staggering feat in the era the car existed, and near impossible in modern times, Ink rendered this 959 as a completely computer generated graphic. True to life touches like dirt sprayed on the splash guards and the tire tracks on the floor really sells the authentic look of these posters.
