Paul Smith’s Iconic Stripes Take Over Porsche’s 1965 Car In Ultra Cute Redesign

Over the weekend, Porsche graced the Le Mans Classic vintage sports car event in a pleasantly surprising way that's garnered a great deal of attention.

Porsche's 1965 ‘911' model was given a fun and bold redesign by way of British brand Paul Smith's iconic multicolored stripes. The aesthetic continues from the automobile's exterior to interior, which houses a dark green cage, black leather steering wheel and wooden gear knob.

The makeover is a special collaboration project between Paul Smith and James Turner—Porsche enthusiast and founder of Sports Purpose that's dedicated to Porsche customizations.

Turner explained that he'd always been a fan of Paul Smith and was “absolutely thrilled” with the outcome of the teamwork.

A special guest visited the #PaulSmith Paris showroom today. This 1965 Porsche 911 has been painted, inside and out, in the colours of the #ArtistStripe. It was lovingly created by @sportspurpose to race in the 2018 Porsche Classic race at #LeMansClassic this weekend.
