Porsche Racing Poster Collection
Pelican Parts has a fairly sizable collection of Porsche Racing posters and have kindly posted high-res scans on their site. There are several eras represented, each with their own distinct style. Really shows off how classic the Porsche logo is, it seems to work pretty much anywhere you put it. Note the various 917’s in there.
I remember seeing some similar posters up on Grain Edit a while back with a link to VP Racing where you could buy some. I always meant to pick one up, but I just checked back and pretty much all the ones I wanted are gone. Someone really needs to reprint these.
There’s an article over at the Porsche site about Eric Strenger, who designed a lot of the Porsche racing posters during these periods. Looking through his work it’s amazing how much range he had as an artist. I would never have guessed some of these were by the same person.

I couldn’t agree more Jakub. I’m particularly curious about “PORSCHE” at the bottom of the last poster.

The poster37_big is really amazing. Does that painting/illustrating style have a name? Reminds me a little bit of Syd Mead.

Makes me think of the “Take on Me” video by A-Ha.
Not to be confused with the literal version:

I would love to have one of the original posters which can be found on eBay as well. They are a but pricey though. There is a company that I believe has obtained permission from Porsche to print reporoductions of these great posters at a very reasonable cost. I pirchased one and was very happy with the quality of the print. Here is a link for their eBay store.
