The Porsche 718 Cayman gets a custom white finish with silver, matching the original 906 colour scheme used for the 1967 race at Fuji Speedway.

Porsche has created a limited edition 718 Cayman GT4 that pays tribute to the Porsche 906 that won the fourth Japanese Grand Prix in 1967. The German automaker claimed to have received assistance from its in-house Porsche Exclusive Manufactur division, which added numerous custom touches to the vehicle.

The exterior of this Porsche 718 Cayman has a custom white finish with silver accents, matching the original 906 colour scheme used for the 1967 race at Fuji Speedway. A Yellow paint theme on the hood and side mirrors, side vents, and rear wing are among the other design elements. The area around the rear number plate is also painted yellow, a nod to the 906 race car, which had a yellow insert at the back. The number 8 corresponds to chassis 145, which was driven to victory by Tetsu Ikuzawa in 1967.

Special styling touches can be found not only on the exterior but also in the cabin. It has custom door sills that depict the 1967 layout of Fuji Speedway, as well as the race-winning time printed in red next to it. The red contrast stitching is also visible throughout the black interior. The embroidered headrests feature the track name, layout, and year of victory. Special badges on the GT4’s quarter windows depict an outline of the 906, as well as references to Fuji and 1967.
