PORSCHE: “125 years of the car” birthday procession kicks off on the Porscheplatz

 Summer 2011: Germany celebrates cars

Automobilsommer 2011

Germany – birthplace of the inventors of the automobile and home to chief brands in the four wheels market, such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche, of course – is celebrating the 125° anniversary of this mean of transportation with a series of events in several cities. The hub of celebrations will be the region of Baden-Württemberg and its capital, Stuttgart.

FOR PORSCHE: “125 years of the car” birthday procession kicks off on the Porscheplatz

Stuttgart. On Sunday 8 May 2011, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, will be teaming up with Mercedes-Benz and Audi, two other car brands also based in Baden-Württemberg, to stage a car procession through Stuttgart. 125 vehicles, contemporary witnesses all, will bring the history of the three carmakers to life – in some cases with well-known drivers at the wheel.

The Zuffenhausen sports car manufacturer will be putting 45 current and historic vehicles from more than six decades of Porsche history on the start line.

The “125 years of the car” procession will get under way at 11.00 a.m. at the Porsche museum, which will be offering visitors free admission on the day.

Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG, will head the birthday procession in a Porsche 911 Turbo S – together with his Mercedes-Benz and Audi opposite numbers.

Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche Automobil Holding SE, will be driving the first Porsche prototype, the Type 356 “No. 1”, developed by his father Ferry Porsche in 1948.

Current and former Porsche AG works and racing drivers will also be taking part in the drive through the town. For example, racing legend Hans Hermann will be piloting the Porsche 917 KH on the streets of Stuttgart, the same car he and Richard Attwood drove in the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours when they won the first ever overall victory for the Zuffenhausen company.

The three times winning Porsche 908/03 Spyder is being withdrawn from the Porsche museum’s exhibition for Porsche works driver Marc Lieb.

Finally, the 612 hp (450 kW) Carrera GT high performance sports car, once limited to 1,270 units, will be driven by double world rally champion Walter Röhrl.

In addition to a “police presence”, the car procession will also give an outing to the Swabian sense of humour. Stuttgart “Tatort” (Crime Scene Investigation) Inspector Richy Müller will be switching on the blue lights on the Porsche 356 C Cabriolet. In the Sixties, this classic car was used by the Württemberg motorway police.

And cabaret artist Christof Sonntag will be behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 Targa (Type 964).

The destination of the procession that will start at Zuffenhausen’s Porscheplatz is the Schlossplatz in the centre of Stuttgart. Here there will be an opportunity on Sunday afternoon to admire all the participating vehicles at close quarters.

Porsche will also be showcasing itself on the Schlossplatz as part of an innovation exhibition true to its “Porsche Intelligent Performance” philosophy: more power with lower consumption, increased efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.

Three modern day Porsche vehicles await the visitor there, providing an impressive demonstration of alternative driveline technologies: the Porsche Boxster E, the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid and the Porsche 911 GT3 R.

German Artist: Bernd Lehmann – Automotive Unique Old Master Etchings

“Bernd Lehmann, born in 1950, is a contemporary painter of beautiful objects. His works speak from within, and in their perfection they rank among the supreme achievements of the etching technique.”

The artist –  Atelier-Bernd Lehmann

Bernd Lehmann, born in 1950, is living in Germany in the countryside near Hamburg. He is a freelance artist since 17 years now. Before he worked for several companies in Hamburg and the surroundings as a lithographer. In a very sensitive and empathic way he brings out the deep characters of his illustrations. Their charisma may touch the contemplator’s soul. His style is a composition of realism and impressionism.

The technique

Lehmann sways the mature technology of etching. He cuts his mirrored  pictures into a metal surface to create a design in intaglio just like the old masters Rembrandt or Dürer did. He inks the metal plate with one color and puts it with a moistened sheet of paper in a high pressure  printing press. The numbers of the crafted impressions are low to keep  up the value. Every single print will be finished in a special way and  colored as may be necessary. So every print is a genuine original.

HANS HERRMANN-PORSCHE 917 K

The artists reputation

Connoisseurs all over Europe appreciate the impressive quality of his fine etchings. His etchings of flowers and portraits of musicians, poets and other characters of the contemporary history and also views from vintage cars to lighthouses formed his kudos. His works could be seen at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Frankfurt Ambiente, IAA Frankfurt Car Fair and Art Fair Europe.

Lehmann crafted etchings for clients such as Caterpillar, Volkswagen, Porsche, Airbus, Lamborghini, Breitling, Rolls Royce and Bentley

A German philosopher and university professor characterized his works as “truly gorgeous, technically perfect and equally absolutely romantically empathetic.” “His art concentrates the beauty of the moment”, a doctor of literature lauded Lehmanns etchings.
