Stuttgart, Germany. 2017.

Porsche doesn’t fudge things. Their reputation is built on precision, rigour and a sense of cold detachment. 

Yet given the chance to examine their racing vehicles up close, you see touches that belie a deeply human touch.

From the rough fibreglassing of a 917/20 body shell, to the hand-fabricated imprecision of a cooling grille on a 904/Carrera GTS, the human touch is evident

It lends these imperious machines an unexpectedly soulful character.
