Limited to 150 pieces. The Next 60 Years Porsche 911 Design Project
The derivation of Porsche’s typical design language since the brand’s founding, a scientific analysis of the design process of the original 911, and an outlook on how coming generations of vehicles might embody the unique design heritage of the legendary sports car icon are all shown in this book.
In collaboration with the Porsche Design Department, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Othmar Wickenheiser, young up-and-coming talents from the Transportation Design Department at the University of Applied Sciences Munich are developing impressive visions for the next 60 years of the Porsche 911.
Othmar Wickenheiser, Professor of Transportation Design at the Faculty of Design at Munich University of Applied Sciences: “We have given the students a high degree of design freedom, in particular to encourage unconventional concepts for future generations. The surprising range of impressive visions – all recognizable as Porsche 911s – shows how Generation Z creatives are taking the DNA of the 911 into a distant future with enthusiasm and dynamism.”
