the porsche 917 concept study reimagines how the original would look if it were produced nowadays. it’s red and white livery – another tribute to the winning race car – highlights the aerodynamic sculpting of its exterior. the hood still sharply slopes to the tarmac whilst its white stripes accentuate its generous curves over the front and back wheel arches which dips in between. at its rear, the car once again features a spoiler that is supported seamlessly with the rising sides.
