One of the world’s most iconic one-make racing series is celebrating a big anniversary in a big way.
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup turns 30 this year, and it’s widely regarded as one of the world’s toughest one-make racing series. At the center of the series is one of the world’s most beloved, legendary and dynamic sports cars, the Porsche 911. The car is one of the cornerstones of automotive culture and history, and the Supercup has been part of its legacy for an incredible 30 years.
To celebrate, Porsche created a custom 911 GT3 that features a special painted livery inspired by the VIP racing car, as well as a custom interior that echoes its colors, and now it’s on display at the Porsche Museum, among four other cars that competed over the years in the Porsche Supercup. The VIP racing car is featured, along with the 911 GT3 Cup 3.8 from 1994 is featured, based on the 993 generation of the Porsche 911, as well as the Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cup based on the 911 Carrera RS, and the 911 GT3 Cup Type 997, the first Cup car to be delivered by Porsche without ABS. The exhibition, on display at the Porsche museum until August 28, celebrates the history of the Porsche Supercup and the legend of the 911 both as a race car and a sports car loved by car enthusiasts the world over.
