There was a lot of hype last year surrounding the ‘retro’ liveries that Porsche employed at the Le Mans 24 Hours, but many of you will no doubt have noticed that the team did the same thing at the IMSA Petit Le Mans race as well. In this instance, the paintwork of the two cars harked back to the 911 GT1 that was victorious at Le Mans in 1998. We are delighted that Spark has just announced 1:43 replicas of these, after confirming the Le Mans cars some time ago.
The #911 car with the red flashes was driven to victory in the GTLM class by Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet and Frderic Makowiecki (SPK5848). The sister #912 car with the yellow flashes came home sixth in class. It was crewed by Earl Bamber, Laurens Vanthoor and Mathieu Jaminet (SPK5849). They will cost £53.99 each.
