How this racing car comes to his name and this strange painting? No, with advertising for the butchers' guild, it has nothing to do.
Ferdinand Piech in his autobiography describes the complex change of a 917 long rear to the short rear version in Paris Eiffel wind tunnel. On that occasion, we learn also something about the comparatively unfavorable drag coefficient because of the necessary air intakes and the output. But that's not the point.
There is at the time a chief designer at Porsche named Anatole Lapine, who felt passed over through the whole action. And instead of just growling, he met the situation with sarcasm. Barely arrived in Stuttgart, the 917 becomes a pig. He received a pink painting and a lot of areas are assigned to body parts. Since the management level discovered the mishap too late, the pig drives races, and that quite successfully. It gets even more nicknames. 10/10
