Porsche Pays Homage To Its Racing Past With Seven 935 Liveries

May 17, 2019

Category: Rides

The Porsche 935 is nothing short of a marvelous, modern-day recreation, calling upon the legendary 911-styled chassis that made a name for itself on the European circuit nearly four-and-a-half decades ago. In September of last year, the German manufacturer announced the revitalization of the platform for 2019, and now, the company has unveiled seven historic liveries for the car — each with their own story.

The seven additional liveries boast their own historical significance, whether it be their inclusion atop the original vehicle, or on a handful of iconic Porsche race cars from the company’s past. The Gulf livery introduces the recognizable blue and bright orange paint used on a number of the company’s top-performing, Gulf-sponsored Porsches, which won the World Sportscar Championship in 1970 and 1971. The next livery on our list, the John Player special, reintroduces the iconic black and gold scheme introduced for the Lotus Formula 1 team in the ‘70s and used by the successful German racing team, Team Kramer, on their very own 935s. Last, but not least, is MOMO’s black, red, and yellow livery — boasting a storied lineage as the official color scheme of Giampiero Moretti, MOMO’s founder, as he raced his very own Porsche 935 from 1978 through 1981. A year later, he would win the Group 5 class at the 1982 1,000 Kilometers of Spa. The company’s remaining liveries — Sachs, Interscope, Salzburg, and Vaillant all have their own story to tell, so head to Porsche’s official website if you’re interested in learning about the additional colorways.
