Porsche reveals last ever GTE Pro livery

The World Endurance Championship is switching to an all-Pro-Am formula from the start of the 2023 season, meaning that the Bahrain 8 Hours will be the final race with fully professional lineups in the GT ranks.


Porsche’s pair of 911 RSRs will both carry a “Goodbye” message in both English and German as well as the names of the drivers who have raced the cars over the GTE years.

The rest of the livery celebrates all the various colour schemes the car has run during its tenure. The basic white and black has been a near consistent part of Porsche’s GTE programme, but the stripes down the bonnet and on the side showcase how many different liveries have been raced in the World Endurance Championship alone.

The pink on the car represents the 2018 Le Mans-winning “Pink Pig” livery, while the red gold and blue matches the second car that raced in the same year – that car celebrated the iconic Rothmans Porsches of the Group C era.


The front wings of the cars also carry the names of each of the 16 races that the 911 RSR has won in GTE-Pro. Porsche will be hoping to add not just a 17th win, but also the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships.

Speaking of the final race Thomas Ludenbach, Vice president of Porsche Motorsport, said: “Our racing cars will be truly eye-catching at the final round of the FIA WEC. 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 special 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 manufacturers' and drivers' titles.”

While the GTE Pro category will bow out after the final race in Bahrain, GTE cars will continue to race for one final season in 2023, with GTE-Am taking over as the top level of GT racing. From 2024 GT3 cars will take over, retaining the pro-am format.
