Heinz Mack was commissioned by a friend to come up with a color design for his Porsche 928. "So the car was given a dynamic enhancement when it was painted all over with a strictly color scale ranging from the brightest white to the deepest black. The little arrows, known from speed tests, create rainbowlike accents. The car was on show for a time at the Porsche Museum." (Heinz Mack, Ute Mack (ed.), Heinz Mack, Leben und Werk, Ein Buch vom Künstler über den Künstler, Cologne 2011, p.315)
