As the largest motoring garden party in the world, West Sussex’s The Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS) offers a long line-up of activities to spoil motor lovers every year. What stole the imagination of visitors away this year is artist and designer Gerry Judah‘s sculpture for Porsche – commissioned to celebrate 50 years of the German luxury sports automaker’s infamous 911.

Seen defying the force of gravity, racing each other, are the three iconic cars at 35 meters straight up in the air. At the apex of three futuristic white, steel ‘arrows’ are the 1963 Original 911, the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, and the 2013 911 – exemplifying the simplicity, elegance, and functionality of the glorious model through its exceptional engineering and lightweight structure – all of which are qualities, which make this undoubtedly the car of my dreams.
