Troy Lee Designed Livery For Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 RSR - 24 Heures Du Mans 2011
ICONOGRAPHY STUDIOS WRAPS THE FLYING LIZARD SPECIAL LIVERY FOR THE TEAM'S
FIRST TWO-PORSCHE LE MANS RACE IN FRANCE ON JUNE 11, 2011
Iconography teams up in joint project with artist Troy Lee to produce the
Flying Lizard commemorative livery for the No. 80 and No. 81 Flying Lizard
Porsches for the 2011 24 Heures du Mans.
Los Alamitos, CA (June 7, 2011) -- Created by California-based artist Troy
Lee and wrapped by Iconography Studios, the livery celebrates the history
of Porsche at LeMans, featuring the 28 drivers who have won the 24 Heures
du Mans overall in a Porsche. The No. 80 and No. 81 designs are identical,
implemented in complementary colors: candy metallic orange for the No. 80
and candy metallic blue for the No. 81; both anchored by a deep ocean blue.
Primary colors provide a backdrop for the driver names and flags which
weave throughout the design on the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.
Troy Lee's concepts were derived from each of the driver's country flags,
using vibrant colors to bring the designs to life in 3D. Showing off the
depth and movement of the amazing cars, while maintaining the integrity of
the Porsche design, was their biggest challenge.
"We worked hand and hand with Troy and his team," said James Naccarato,
Owner of Iconography Studios. "They created the concept and design with
Flying Lizard and we brought it to life on the Porsches with the help of
our top of the line Roland printer machines."
"A crucial part of this project was getting the right paint: We worked
extensively with PPG Industries to develop these custom colors, both for
their liveliness and for the depth of the metallic colors. Using the candy
paint as a base, we then created the intricate backdrop of asymmetric
shapes to balance the design and create the sense of speed," said Lee.
Flying Lizard initiated the project with Troy Lee in late 2010. "We worked
with Troy's team for several months to finalize the concept and design. The
livery is a combination of candy paint overlaid with vinyl. The vinyl was
custom-tailored to each Porsche and applied at our shop in Sonoma by
Iconography Studios," described Flying Lizard VP of Marketing Jennifer

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder First Test: Fastest 0-60 Time Ever? Plus Porsche 959! - Ignition Ep. 109
On this week's Ignition, Carlos Lago has a second go at Porsche's 918
hypercar. The goal: to run the 918 through the full gauntlet of MT's
instrumented testing, including 0-60, quarter mile, braking, figure 8, and
a blistering real-time hot lap around Big Willow race track with pro driver
Randy Pobst. Carlos also gets a rare chance to experience the 918's
ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile
history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it's technology
only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918
attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology,
including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated
electric motor to provide extra Boost. Can Porsche's new hypercar achieve the
same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned
for the record-breaking review.
Watch our original first drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder here:
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

The Porsche 918 Spyder Tested - CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
The plug-in hybrid, mid-engine hypercar: The Porsche 918 Spyder.
Tested by /DRIVE's Chris Harris at the Valencia circuit in the winter of
2013. The Porsche 918 Spyder has come a long way since when we first saw
it at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. Competing against the Ferrari
LaFerrari and McLaren P1, it is the cheapest of the trio of new hypercars
at a base price of $845,000.
The engine weights 140 kg according to Porsche and it delivers 608 horsepower (453 kW) at
8,500 rpm and 528 N·m (389 lbf·ft) of maximum torque. This is
supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 279 hp (208
kW) - One 154 hp electric motor drives the rear wheels in parallel with the
engine and also serves as the main generator.
