One of the classic motorsport partnerships, instantly recognized on the racetrack or road is between Porsche Motorsport and Martini - maker of Italian sparkling vermouth.

As part of Martini's 150 Anniversary celebration, during the 911's own 50th anniversary, the pair will be reunited when the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car makes its debut in iconic Martini Racing stripes.

The new car will be driven by nine-time World Rally Champion, Sébastien Loeb at the opening round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in Catalunya, Spain on May 12.

As Official Partner to the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, which runs as a support series on the Formula 1 series, Martini is resurrecting an important part of its heritage. The new car displays the distinctive dark blue, light blue and red stripes of Martini Racing for the first time since 2008.

A second driver, yet to be named, will drive the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car for the third round at Monza, Italy on September 8.
