Porsche Taycan Artcar - Interview - 4 Questions to Richard Phillips
The Taycan Artcar is actually the second round of collaboration between New York-based artist Richard Phillips and the German sports car maker. In 2019, Phillips worked with Porsche factory driver Jörg Bergmeister to design a Porsche art car, which then made history at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. When Project 1 Motorsport's Porsche 911 RSR crossed the finish line to win the GTE Am class, it was the first art car to take the laurels in what is the world's toughest motorsports endurance race. To create the Taycan Artcar, the Massachusetts-born artist plastered his 2010 large-scale painting Queen of the Night - inspired by the work of legendary Swiss landscaper Adolf Dietrich - onto the body of a Porsche Taycan 4S. . The work shows a three-dimensional arrangement of elements and details of the frame that measures eight square meters and that flows organically through the front hood, over the front fenders and through the doors, giving a sense of speed with the leaves of the flower of the bloom nocturnal.
