Porsche ‘911 Inspiration’ Sculpture Unveiled In Germany
Three years ago at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Porsche celebrated the 50th anniversary of its famous 911 supercar by unveiling a huge sculpture that featured three iconic 911s suspended high in the air. This unique creation was so well received that Porsche decided to build another one outside of its museum in Zuffenhausen.
The Porsche Newsroom released photos of this new sculpture via Twitter:

The sculpture is more than 78 feet tall and was created by British artist Gerry Judah, who also created the 50th anniversary 911 sculpture two years prior at the Goodwood Festival. The three Porsche 911s at the top of the sculpture are from 1970, 1981, and the current model. The Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen, Germany, was chosen for the site of this sculpture because it was in nearby Porscheplatz, where the first 911 came off the assembly line in 1963.
The unveiling of “911 Inspiration” was complete with a light-show, a display of 911s, and a film tribute that used the glass face of the Porsche Museum for its screen.
