Le Mans comeback design statement: Porsche 911 Carrera S ‘Martini Racing Edition’

As if its return to Le Mans wasn’t momentous enough, Porsche is celebrating the occasion with a special edition 911 Carrera S. Just 80 ‘Martini Racing Editions’ will be sold worldwide, dressed in the iconic blue and red stripes…

In addition to the evocative livery (available on either white or black bodywork), the car receives the front and rear aero parts from the Cup package, illuminated ‘Martini Racing Edition’ lettering on the stainless-steel door sills, and a body-coloured dash with special badges to indicate its significance. 

The 400HP Martini Carrera pays homage to Porsche's legendary Le Mans racers such as the 917 and 935 ‘Moby Dick’, cars that helped to cement Martini’s presence in motorsport folklore. Deliveries commence in selected European markets this month, while China, Japan and Latin America will follow later in the year. In Germany, the livery alone will be available as a retrofit option on selected models, priced at around 1,000 euros.
