Amazing 2013 Goodwood Statue Celebrates Porsche 911 [Live Photos][Video]
text size: A- A+
The new statue embeds three 911 models, starting with an original 1965 version to the left and the latest 911 Carrera 4 at the right. To top it all up, between the two blue-painted sportscars rises a yellow 1973 2.7 RS model, one of the company’s most acclaimed vehicles.
Designed by Gerry Judah, the steel monocoque Porsche sculpture is 34-meter high and weighs 25 tons.
“I had to create a sculpture which personifies the energy and dynamic excitement not just of the cars and Festival of Speed, but also reflected how something as beautiful and dynamic as the 911 can in turn celebrate the event”, said Judah. “The 911 is a fantastic shape, so I had to think, ‘what can I do with it?’ You can’t deconstruct it, so in the context of the Festival, however beautiful the 911 is, you need to embody a sense of speed. So the sculpture has to give the car the energy it deserves.”
