We here at l'art et l'automobile are diehard Porsche fanatics, and we love finding tidbits of Porsche's legacy, like this very interesting article from Hemmings Daily, detailing the Porsche Museum’s attempt to construct a replica of 356 No. 1, and sharing them with our followers. So be sure to head over to our Blog and check the article out.
Also, we are currently in the midst of a big Promotion of Porsche Memorabilia on this Website as we speak. Not long ago, our blog detailed the history and creation of some Victory Posters commissioned by the Porsche Factory, and we've just released Chapter 2 of that collection that we acquired. You can visit the Gallery here, and possibly add one of these pieces to your collection. But hurry they're going fast, and We Only Have One of Each.

The beginning of Automotive sculptures mirrors the development of the automobile itself. The sculptures that came out of the 1890’s and early 1900’s in Europe and America and the artwork were mainly commissioned by race organizers and manufacturers as trophies and awards. Those early pieces were orientated towards usage rather than collection to glorify the product, the driver or the event.
The Louis Vuitton/Razzia Connection.
Louis Vuitton probably does not really need any introduction. It is a pretty well known name, originally recognized for their luxury luggage with the famous LV monogram.
