Regular readers of Top Gear will know that we’re huge fans of retro race car liveries. They just don’t paint ‘em like they used to.

Or maybe they do. We could barely contain ourselves when we saw what Porsche had done to its two 911 RSRs that are set to compete at Petit Le Mans – the final round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship – held at Road Atlanta in October. Oh yes, that’s a classic Coca Cola livery right there. 

The relationship between Porsche and Coca Cola stems from the 1980s, when the Bob Akin Motor Racing team first applied the famous red and white branding to a 935 in 1983, followed by a 962 the season after. Crikey.
