Looking at this custom Porsche, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Swiss army had ordered up a fleet of military-spec 911s. Then you'd quickly realize that while it may be a versatile sports car, the 911 would not be the Porsche most utile for military applications, compared with, say, the Cayenne.

In reality what you're looking at is a "civilian" 911 tuned by aftermarket specialist, Sportec. Never mind the 800-horsepower engine this brat is packin', the real highlight is the original paint job. This 911 Sportec SPR1 is decked out in matte green, with dark wheels and a Swiss flag painted on the roof. The paramilitary hue might make it even harder to spot as it sprints to sixty in three seconds flat, that is assuming the Swiss machine can shift out of neutral.

Follow the jump to watch the video of the Porsche 911 Sportec SPR1 undergoing high-speed testing at Nardo.

      Cool car. Using a Flat paint job isn't the most original thing nowadays, but it does look good in this Flat Military Green. But then again, a 911 Turbo would look good in Primer Grey as well.

      But why have the Continental Logo when using Toyo Tires? It looks like its sporting a set of Toyo Proxes T1-Rs.

        one of the Nardo high speed event sponsors was Continetal the reason why the sportec carry the sticker

        The tires on the Sportec are Dunlop SP sport 900 if I am not wrong

      Such a hot car/ paint job! I agree with Daniel Cote 100%. Who picked that song to accompany one of the hottest cars ever. I had dreamt of painting my old A4 in army matte green! Would have looked amazing, but I sold it and now have a Sage Green Rabbit. BMW briefly sold the Z4 in an interesting Urban Green a couple years ago http://www.bmwz4roadster.net/Z4_Pics/Z4_A04_Urban.jpg. Glad to see people breaking from the conventional pallate from time to time!

      Sounded like a pr0n movie. Although I wouldn't mind nailing that.... (the pedal i mean.)
        • 7 Years Ago
        I was thinking the same thing, sounds like a porno!

      Thought the Porsche looked really cool in the matt green paint. I have a vw Caddy pick-up which I would like to re-paint this colour - but have struggled to match it with a specific paint code. Can anybody help, as there are many many shades of 'military' green, but not all are as good as this one. Specific Information please!

        www.rrservices.co.uk can supply the Swiss Army Green. I am currently in the same position for re-spraying my 1963 Swiss Army Unimog 404

      Shift out of neutral...nicely done, sir.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I agree. A bit of clever, that.

      Undergoing high speed testing? Yawn. This is a study in how to make a boring video about a hot car.

      Cute, but it's been done before.

      Back in the 1980's, the good people at RUF had a 930 mule that they assembled out of a spare shell and some miscellaneous parts. Stripped of all but the most basic components and almost completely devoid of interior upholstery, it was light and purportedly very fast. Painted with - literally - some surplus Bundeswehr olive drab paint, it became known as the "NATO Porsche".
