Three Porsche 911 vehicles are planned to tower above traffic with Porsche AG looking into erecting a new landmark at its Stuttgart headquarters in Germany.
The sculpture, which can be described as a work of art in its own right, will be erected on the roundabout in the centre of the traffic-light-controlled intersection on Porscheplatz. The aim is to achieve a visual link with the Porsche Museum by creating an interesting and living scenic impression.
The sculpture is to stand around 24m high, measuring about 10m around its base. It consists of three steles, each of which has a Porsche 911 perched on its top. The cars stem from various model years to document the history of the iconic car, which has rolled off the Stuttgart production lines for the past 50 years. The roundabout’s existing white gravel surface is to be removed, and grassed over.
The position of the work of art does not contravene any existing traffic regulations or disturb the existing infrastructure, and work is to be performed during the 2015 summer holidays. Porsche is currently working with the City of Stuttgart to provide the general preconditions relating to planning law, with a view to having the sculpture inaugurated in an official ceremony in autumn next year.
