One of the vehicles in the sky is the refreshed 911.
To pay homage to its iconic vehicle, or simply reveal the refreshed Porsche 911 in an interesting fashion, Porsche has just officially revealed the sculpture in Zuffenhausen to commemorate where the first 911 back in 1963 rolled off the assembly line. The three-pillared sculpture was designed by Gerry Judah, the British artist that was in charge of the similar architecture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Sitting at the top of the sculpture are three different generations of the 911.
Porsche has chosen three great 911s for everyone to gawk at. To pay tribute to the 911’s rich history, there’s a Porsche 911 from the 901, 930 and, recently refreshed, 991 generations atop of the incredible sculpture. The 78 foot tall sculpture sits right next to the Porsche museum and is the automaker’s way of displaying the rear-engined model’s status. According to Matthias Mueller Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, “the sculpture that we present today is more than a work of art. It is also a symbol for our company’s close ties with Stuttgart.” The architecture is a moving way to document the brand’s rich history, but we were hoping for a better look at the refreshed 991.
