Porsche 911 Carrera and Mercedes 300 SL "Gullwing" by IMAGO Design

Modelled in Rhino, rendered in V-Ray by IMAGO Design

"Ferdinand Porsche set a new benchmark in car design. Starting with the early Porsche 356 in 1948, developing the 550 Spyder and arriving at the state of art 911 (991) Carrera S Coupe.

Porsches have always been items of admiration for my part. The specific design DNA defines a specific and recognizable aesthetics.

I imagine the loft of a Collector with the 911 parked inside of the living space. It creates a kind of an unusual dynamic image, reminding us of superheroes like Batman with their beloved vehicles in the cave.

Once I visited a CG company in Bergen, Norway, whereby one of the owners took me with his car to visit their office in the harbour. He parked directly inside of the office and when I stepped out I had to be careful not to hit one of the other working guys there with the door. I thought this concept (not the door hitting) was quite unique.

When I grow up, I will get a 911 myself too.. It is good to have dreams, after all!"
