Porsche Sculpture: Goodwood Festival of Speed, 2018

Chichester, United Kingdom

Gerry Judah

London, United Kingdom, 2018-07-16 -

This July marks the 25th annual Festival of Speed at Goodwood House in West Sussex.


The Festival of Speed is a major event in the world motorsport calendar, featuring the latest racers, championship drivers and incredible displays of classic cars.


For these 25 years, British artist and designer Gerry Judah, has been commissioned to create the spectacular centrepiece sculpture for the event. This year celebrates 70 years since the Porsche 356 was first introduced in 1948. 


The sculpture stands in front of Goodwood House at 52 metres high, towering high above the entire event. One single narrow spine, starting at only 98 millimetres wide on the ground, shoots vertically to explode into seven pointed spindles, on which six iconic Porsches sit dramatically at each end, with the seventh spindle pointing sharply into the sky.


The cars displayed are as follows:


356 - the first Porsche produced in 1948

917 - an endurance racer as driven by Steve McQueen in the 1971 film “Le Mans”

959 Paris Dakar rally winner from 1987

918 Spyder—a hybrid road car from 2015

919 Le Mans Prototype from 2015 

911R— a limited edition road car introduced in 2016 representing the latest in Porsche design.


Despite the sheer size—as high as Nelson’s Column—the sculpture as a whole is incredibly lightweight—just 21 tonnes of steel to support 6 tonnes of cars. The geometry is based on a regular truncated octahedron, this shape giving positions to display all six cars, with a stem at the bottom and a spire on top. All parts are hexagonal tapered tubes, giving strength and rigidity, and fabricated entirely from laser-cut steel plate.


Gerry Judah’s installations can be seen in the Imperial War Museum, St Paul’s Cathedral and the India High Commission as well as international locations such as Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea and an entrance sculpture outside the Porscheplatz Museum in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart.
