Der Porsche 911 ist ein einzigartiges Symbol für die grenzenlose Sehnsucht nach absoluter Überschreitung. Ulf Poschardt umkreist den 911er als Phänomen der Zeit-, Kultur-, Technik- und Designgeschichte und bekennt seine Liebe zur persönlichen Autonomie auf vier Rädern. Jerry Seinfeld fährt ihn, Boris Johnson bewundert ihn, Volker Schlöndorff hasst ihn und Andreas Baader hat ihn sogar gestohlen. Der Porsche 911 bewegt die Welt. In Deutschland von manchen als Bonzenschale verachtet, gilt er in den USA als Lieblingsauto des -linksliberalen Intellektuellen. Der 911er wurde nicht nur von einer der faszinierendsten und umstrittensten Unternehmerfamilien erfunden, er verfügt auch über eine unvergleichliche technische Genese. Zudem ist er ein glänzendes Beispiel einer Designtradition, die in »form follows function« kein modisches Dogma sieht, sondern Ausdruck schwäbischen Pragmatismus war. Ulf Poschardt legt den Porschefahrer auf die Couch und stellt fest, dass ein bisschen Narzissmus schon okay ist. In diesem Sinne: Nicht alle können und müssen Porsche fahren, aber das »Lebensgefühl 911er« als Geste der Freiheit und des Mutes, alles zu geben, ist für jeden da.

Based loosely upon the VW Beetle, which Dr Porsche also designed, the 356 was the first Porsche model and, as such, represented the birth of a legend. The curvaceous little coupés and spyders were a huge success throughout the world, and continued to be so throughout the model's life because of a policy of continuous development. Here is the full and fascinating story of the Porsche 356, and the racing and rallying cars which sprang from it. Here, too, is the story of the very beginnings of what, today, is one of the greatest sports car marques and an icon of automotive excellence. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

Artists around the world are fascinated by the Porsche brand. Inspired by the aura of the models from Zuffenhausen, they create works of art that achieve five- and six-figure prices at auctions. The Porsche 911, as the icon of the brand, is often at the centre of the works. For the most part, the artists approach the object and its forms in a classical way, in oil or acrylic. Increasingly though, these artists are also designing contemporary digital art. The artists hail from all over the world - from urban and multi-cultural New York to the Scottish highlands, and the North German Plain. What all the artists have in common is that they use the charisma of the Porsche lines and curves to put it into a new context. Curated by the renowned painter and performance artist Uli Hack, the book shows a kaleidoscope of contemporary Porsche art. SELLING POINTS: * The first 'Porsche Art' book * Includes approximately 24 artists from around the world, such as Marcello Petisci, Wolf Gast, Nicolas Hunziker, Alina Knott, Uli Hack, Stephane Dufour, Tony Crampton, Dexter Brown, Yahn Janou and many more * Compiled by the well-known painter of the Formula 1 posters, Uli Hack * Opulent pictures in an impressive format 205 colour images
