A Porsche Art Car isn't something unheard of, but this is one of the strangest of them all. Designed by Peter Klasen, a German artist part of the 'La Nouvelle Figuration' movement, it is an early 911 modified for racing with about 192-horsepower on tap and is named 'Project 007'. And no, there are no links to that secret agent. Early 911s are revered for their purity in terms of the construction and the classic design of the body. The original 911 (901) is a Butzi Porsche design whose lines are still relevant on modern Porsches that we see and hear today. This particular 911, though, is something that we don't see every day. Its colorful livery was drawn up by Klasen in 2009, and it's similar, in terms of the color palette and some of the themes and elements displayed, with previous liveries he's done. Maybe Klausen's most prominent work in the automotive world is a racing livery that adorned a Porsche 962 CK6 entered by German outfit Kremer Racing in the 1990 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The German artist also designed the red-white-and-blue livery of a Porsche 911 (993) GT2 entered by French team Sonauto in the French GT Championship in the late '90s.
