Porsche Unveils New “Inspiration 911” Sculpture in Porscheplatz

Famed sculptor and designer Gerry Judah recently partnered with Porsche to create a striking public sculpture at the center of Porscheplatz in Zuffenausen, Germany. The sculpture is called “Inspiration 911,” and is inspired by the heritage of the Porsche 911 itself.

The sculpture is the work of British artist Gerry Judah, who is renowned in part for his spectacular annual installation at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Each year, Judah partners with a manufacturer to create a dynamic large-form sculpture, each bristling with movement and energy. To date, Judah has partnered with Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, Renault, Ford, Rolls-Royce, Honda, Toyota, Land Rover, Alfa Romeo, Mazda, and Lotus.

While the sculptures on the Goodwood estate are temporary, the Porscheplatz installation is permanent. At the pinnacle of the 78-foot-tall “Inspiration 911,” three Porsche 911s rest in trio. Included are a 1970, 1981, and a current-generation Porsche 911, signifying the march of Porsche’s progress toward sports-car perfection.

Matthias Mueller, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said during his address at the event, “The sculpture that we present today is more than a work of art. It is also a symbol for our company’s close ties with Stuttgart.”
