Porsche to run special liveries for final Porsche 911 RSR GTE Pro Race

Porsche has announced that it will field its two 911 RSRs in special liveries for the final round of the FIA World Endurance Championship in Bahrain to celebrate ten years of competition with the iconic race car as a works team with the conclusion of the GTE Pro class in ACO competition.

The two 911 RSRs will feature coloured stripes on the front, sides and rear wings and the names of all the drivers from the last ten years of factory racing written on the roofs along with the word ‘goodbye’ written in the national languages of the venues where the car has competed.

Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President Porsche Motorsport is looking forward to seeing the new liveries as the manufacturer says goodbye to GTE Pro racing.

“Our racing cars will be truly eye-catching at the final round of the WEC,” said Laudenbach. “I’m very much looking forward to seeing how the fans react. The GTE-Pro class of the World Endurance Championship will be phased out at the end of the 2022 season. So this will be the swansong event with the works team’s 911 RSR.

“For this very wonderful occasion, our designers have created a foil wrap that, in my opinion, wonderfully represents the history and successes of the last decade. And the icing on the cake will come in Bahrain: We’re aiming to win the race as well as the manufacturer’s and driver’s titles.”


For 2023, the 911 RSR will continue to race but in the GTE-Am class as the Stuttgart manufacturer campaigns the new Porsche 963 in the WEC and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship under the banner of Porsche Penske Motorsport. Kent-based Jota Sport will be contesting the WEC with a Porsche 963.
