Porsche 911 S Martini Racing Edition

After 16 years of absence, Porsche are finally making their comeback to the world’s most famous endurance race and to celebrate the moment, the German carmaker prepared a special edition of the Porsche 911 S. The car is available either in black or white, both versions also featuring the traditional Martini Racing blue-red stripes on the hood, roof, boot lid and on the side. The special edition also features Porsche’s Aerokit Cup package that includes an optimized spoiler lip and a fixed rear spoiler.

The Martini Racing theme is continued on the inside too, where customers will be able to enjoy customized and illuminated side sills, a sports steering wheel, the Sport Chrono package, Martini Racing logo and several elements painted in the same blue-red color scheme. Porsche also announced the special edition’s features lists includes Communication Management, electronically adjustable sports seats, leather upholstery and a high-end Bose sound system.

No upgrades were made to the powertrain, so the Porsche 911 S dedicated to the 24 Hourse of Le Mans is powered by the same 3.8-liter inline-six engine that produces 400-hp and is mated to a PDK automatic transmission. According to the official specs, the car sprints from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.1 seconds.
