Views of the Future
Students in the Transportation Design department at Pforzheim University are learning the skills of their chosen profession. Following in the footsteps of alumnus Michael Mauer, who is head of design for the Volkswagen Group, the second-semester students developed their first automotive designs for a future 911. We compare perspectives.
“My design for a new 911 emphasizes its curves. A drop-like shape was important to me, and the complete absence of any disruptive edges.”
“Restraint is a crucial point: the 911’s lines are very precise, very aesthetic—and streamlined at the same time.”
“The 911 is a projection screen for many things: hopes, dreams, desires.”
“I wanted to explore something new and quickly hit upon an idea: to cultivate the curves of the 911, to pursue them further—in simple yet luxurious form.”
