Martini

The first Macan wears the instantly recognizable blue-red-silver scheme of Martini Racing. Porsche is one of many to use the colors, but Porsche helped cement the legend.

The result was a distinctive new design that appeared swollen and rounded, inspiring Martini Racing to slather on some pink paint and a butcher's diagram, christening the new car as the "The Trufflehunter of Zuffenhausen," colloquially known as the "Pink Pig."
