In the 1969 color meeting at Porsche, the engineers outlined the descriptive colors for the new 911 model; Tangerine, Guards red, polo red, bahia red, Bahama yellow, Speed yellow, Viper Green, Olive, leaf green, Irish green and then they erased the black board before transcribing the decisions around that taxi tan color…

"" Per Bruce Anderson
There was a 2.5 liter racing version of this shorter -stroke version of the engine, which is a very nice combination if there is a class where you need an under 2500cc racing engine. It used the 66 mm stroke and a set of Mahle 89 mm pistons and cylinders for 2463.57 cc displacement. These engines were very popular in the IMSA GTU class when the class limit was 2.5 liters. These 2.5 liter engines were very drivable engines, with good throttle response and a nice broad power curve.""
