Porsche Places Three Generations Of The Porsche 911 Atop A Sculpture

One of the vehicles in the sky is the refreshed 911.

To pay homage to its iconic vehicle, or simply reveal the refreshedPorsche 911 in an interesting fashion, Porsche has just officially revealed the sculpture inZuffenhausen to commemorate where the first 911 back in 1963 rolled off the assembly line. Thethree-pillared sculpture was designed by Gerry Judah, the British artist thatwas in charge of the similar architecture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Sittingat 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 Porsche911 from the 901, 930 and, recently refreshed, 991 generations atop of the incrediblesculpture. The 78 foot tall sculpture sits right next to the Porsche museum andis the automaker’s way of displaying the rear-engined model’s status. Accordingto Matthias Mueller Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, “the sculpturethat we present today is more than a work of art. It is also a symbol for ourcompany’s close ties with Stuttgart.” The architecture is a moving way to documentthe brand’s rich history, but we were hoping for a better look at the refreshed991.
