The difference between car lovers and the rest of the world is that we see a work of art and they see four wheels and an engine. To give the people that don’t sniff petrol a clue of how cool the 911 is, Porsche’s museum in Stuttgart is hosting a special exhibition starting September 20th and ending January 8th, 2012.
So what’s it all about? Well, a group of 19 artist from Latin America have joined under the helm of Jorge Gomez to create 24 unique artworks on hoods of the 911 GT2.

“The work on the skin of a racing car inspired the artists to very different works, offering the beholder a great variety of styles and materials employed – from acrylic to enamel, from mosaic tiles to tyre rubber,” Porsche says.

To ensure we don’t forget this about cars as well, we’re told that Gomez occasionally insists on fitting the bonnets to his own Porsche 911 GT2 and taking the artworks for a spin.
