Jerry Judah, best known for his Goodwood sculptural additions, has just unveiled his latest auto-inspired creation. Located on the roundabout outside Porsche’s museum at Zuffenhausen in Stuttgart, Germany, the designer’s newest bit of vertical styling celebrates the company’s iconic rear-engined bread and butter – the 911.
Unlike the Mazda populated sculpture at Goodwood (http://elementemagazine.com/gerry-judahs-mazda-tower-twists-rises-over-goodwoods-2015-festival-of-speed/ ) Judah’s Porscheplatz piece features three genuine 911s: a new 911 Carrera, a 911 SC Coupé and a 911 2.2 Coupé.
Designed by UK frequenting Judah – with fabrication by Littlehampton Welding and structural engineering by Capita – the 25 meter (82 feet) tall sculpture, composed of a lightweight steel monocoque shell was prefabricated in the UK before being shipped to Germany for assembly on site.

The sculpture retains similarities to the original Porsche sculpture for the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
