Porsche Singapore recently decided to create five bespoke Macans, each in a unique Livery that harks back to one of Porsche’s iconic Le Mans racers. While I think that these liveries would go much better (and be more logical) on the brand’s full-fat sportscar-for-the-road Porsche 911 models… It’s understandable that this sales-and-marketing-led effort is poised towards inculcating Porsche’s motorsport heritage on the everyday sort of bloke, and not the enthusiast. That’s all right though, we get the drift. H/TSource
