René Staud and Porsche – a dream team of automotive photography
Motorsport not only offered Porsche an opportunity to test progressive technology that could be transferred to road cars, it was also an ideal marketing tool with high appeal. If you look back at models such as the Porsche 917, the 904, and the 956, they produced series winners who were accustomed to success and true legends of the racetrack.
Equally legendary are the Porsche pictures by René Staud. As one of the world’s best and best-known automotive photographers, he has staged the top-class sports cars in an incomparably direct manner. Beyond the noise and dirt of the race track, the Porsche models unfold their very own magic and reveal not only the hard development work that goes into each of them, but also the timelessness of functional design!
