SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT – need a GREAT stocking stuffer?
Cool Wire Sculpture of Porsche Numero Uno!
I would have this PORSCHE Numero Uno sculpture in my yard any day…!!
It rolls, steers and you can sit in her and
pretend you are shifting through the gears in your own garden.
It is based on the first 356 in 1948
and is lovingly sculpted to show the lines, with just a little bit of greenery for contrast.
Somebody spent a lot of time, and probably did it just for the love of PORSCHE !
When covered with vine it will be a living sculpture.
Add that one to your list of garden projects, your spouse will roll eyes for sure.

Porsche loyalists will flock to the Monterey Peninsula October 14-16 when Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca hosts Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV.
Complementing the hundreds of historic Porsche race cars competing or on special display in the open paddock, are a number of fan activities that will appeal to the young and young-at-heart.
One of the highlights will be a chance to visit with more than 50 legendary Porsche drivers who will be attending and signing autographs each of the three days. It will be a rare opportunity to mingle and hear stories of their competitive days.
On Saturday, there will be a remarkable collection of Porsches lining up for an afternoon Concours on Pit Lane where judges will be hard-pressed to select overall winners in a variety of categories.
Then, when the sun is setting, the Porsche Fan Party in the Biergarten kicks into full swing with live music, authentic German food and a screening of the classic Steve McQueen film “LeMans.”
Ringing the bustling Yamaha Marketplace and all its exhibitors and food stops, will be an 800-plus Porsche Car Corral. The Porsche Club of America is organizing what is likely to be the largest single marque car corral in Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca history, a remarkable accomplishment in its own right.
“There is going to be so much for visitors to do once they are here, it is going to be nearly impossible to cover it all in one day,” says Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
“Rennsport occurs only once every three years and Porsche Cars North America is ensuring that its West Coast debut will be a memorable one.”
Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV will bring together many of Porsche’s most historic racing models from the Spyder of the mid-‘50s through the 917 and 956/962 of the ‘70s and ‘80s to the popular RS Spyder of the last decade.
Additionally, a special tribute will be paid to the numerous racing versions of the Porsche 911.

19 important artists from Uruguay and Argentina, including for example Pablo Atchugarry, Rogelio Polesello and Jorge Ferreyra Basso lent Porsche bonnets their very own signature.
New special exhibition from 20 September 2011 to 8 January 2012
Stuttgart. The Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, museum is paying tribute to 24 very special works of art with a new special exhibition. The exhibits in question, which will be on public display from 20 September 2011 until 8 January 2012 are paintings from South America. However, instead of resorting to conventional art materials, Porsche 911 GT2 sports car bonnets have been pressed into service as a “canvass”. The project is the brainchild of Argentinian Jorge Gómez. As both art lover and big fan of the Porsche brand, he came up with the idea of simply combining his two biggest passions, linking two fascinating art forms in the process.
19 important artists from Uruguay and Argentina, including for example Pablo Atchugarry, Rogelio Polesello and Jorge Ferreyra Basso, accepted Gomez’s invitation to lend Porsche bonnets their very own signature and put a creative twist on them.
The work on the skin of a racing car inspired the artists to very different works, offering the beholder a great variety of styles and materials employed – from acrylic to enamel, from mosaic tiles to tyre rubber. But from time to time the works of art still fulfil their original purpose as car bonnets, because Gómez occasionally insists on fitting them on his own Porsche 911 GT2 and taking the artworks for a spin.
The work on the skin of a racing car inspired the artists to very different works, e.g. Omar Panosetti “Evita”.
The collection is now making its European debut in the Porsche museum, being exhibited against the impressive backdrop of 23,000 hp.
The Porsche Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For further information please visit www.porsche.com/museum.
