After months of waiting, it’s clear Porsche is really progressing the testing and development program of the Porsche 918 Spyder. We’ve seen videos of it on the Ring and now Porsche has released pictures of the 918 in Martini Racing colors, celebrating the successful partnership between Porsche and the Italian brand that we love so much.

Not only is this awesome, but it’s a history lesson, too. The Porsche 917 wore Martini livery in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971 where the Martini colors became famous.

The ultimate goal for the 918, though? To run a faster lap around the Nordschleife than 7:22. If this is the future of hybrids, sign us up.
