On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, British automaker MINI offers its congratulations to its German counterpart. As part of MINI’s birthday wishes, the brand has unveiled a photo shoot featuring a classic MINI and first-gen Porsche 911 Targa, both sporting a unique lime yellow finish. At first glance MINI and Porsche might have little in common, but a closer look reveals similarities between the two, marked by a dedication to groundbreaking design and a willingness to enter new markets. Motorsport has also been a key chapter in the histories of both cars, the 911 representing one of the most successful racing cars ever built. The MINI Cooper S, meanwhile, enjoyed a string of wins at the Monte Carlo rally throughout the 1960s. Perhaps MINI has earned the right to stand side by side with a Porsche 911. Enjoy the photos below.
