How about combining the optically disappointing design with a racing car? Just like this. The Dempsey-Proton Racing team has given its #77 Porsche 911 a unique paint job.
The Le Mans Grand Touring Endurance (LMGTE) category was created in 2011 and comprises road-going road-going race cars from the most prestigious manufacturers (Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Ford and Porsche). Only cars that are one year older than those used in LMGTE Pro can compete in LMGTE Am. It is also interesting to note that both professional and amateur drivers can compete in this category.
The LMGTE Am field for the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans was quite large, even though neither Ford nor BMW were represented at the French event. This meant that the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin cars were "no better" than the other teams. The Dempsey-Proton Racing team entered three Porsche 911s, the #77 car being driven by the trio of Matt Campbell, Riccardo Pera and Christian Ried. The trio qualified for the hyperpole, where they were beaten by just one tenth by the Luzich Racing team's Ferrari 488 GTE Evo.
They completed 339 laps of the race and finished second in their class, only this time it was an Aston Martin rather than a Ferrari that stood in their way. They could take some consolation in the fact that they were the top finishers in their class among the Porsches. The LMGTE Am may not excite many people, but maybe this model car will change that. The 1:43 scale model of the Spark is sure to attract attention when displayed in the room.
