Artist and designer Gerry Judah, whose origins trace back to Baghdad before being born in Calcutta and growing up in London, has been commissioned by Porsche to create a sculpture commemorating the 50 year legacy of the Porsche 911. The gravity-defying sculpture depicts three classic Porches racing towards the sky.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I had to create a sculpture that personifies the energy and excitement not only of these beautiful cars but also the Festival of Speed. The 911 is a fantastic shape that can't be deconstructed or embellished, so in this context, the sculpture had to provide the right platform for the car to soar up and shine in the sky," Gerry Judah said. “The concept was that each car is shooting into the sky, supporting one another, racing each other, captured in a perfect moment. Like the cars it displays, the sculpture is superbly engineered, lightweight and reflective of the Porsche 911 itself: simple, pure and built for the job.”
