This week's Porsche of the week combines Porsche and art to make quite the spectacle. The Porsche was posted without any caption or information, leaving me to decipher it for all your Pfanatics out there. It looks like this Porsche was used as a canvas for an art piece, either that or they were stripping the color off of the exterior and discovered that it had been painted over many times before. I really like how the bright blue seeps through on the edges, like around the headlight, and how the red and orange kind of play together. The middle seems to be a slew of colors, and who knows maybe this Porsche was an exhibit and we're just getting the really close us view.

When it comes to Porsche racing there's a lot of emphasis on the cars, of course. The cars are the star of the show, maneuvering the track and hoping to pull out a win. But let's not forget about the silent heroes as well, the pit crew. They are required for any Porsche to be successful in any race. They monitor the car, do repairs, and have to be quick and smart about it because second place is always on the line. This shot is of a couple men in the pit along with a slew of tools for working on the car. They've laid some out in lines, others seem to be piled on each other. Whatever their process is, I hope it works and they have a successful race day.

This Porsche interior of the week was chosen because of the beautiful caramel colored leather paired with the brown exterior. The color combination was just too good to keep to myself. I wasn't sure if I could count this one as an interior because it's an overhead shot instead of the usual in the driver's seat, but the brown on brown was way to inviting to pass up. While we can't see the details inside, this car left me wanting more, to open the door and check it out.

All this talk of winter storm Juno and this Porsche came to mind. A solid white Porsche, apparently traveling to or from a rally has extra tires tied up top and some snowy headlights. At least the snow isn't coming over the hood of the car, yet. The tires are white walled, without any snow, and it looks like a bumpy slow ride to where ever they're going. Best of luck to all you Pfanatics out there with Juno, drive slow and carefully.

It's clear what makes this Porsche stand out. The base color is a white or off-white, almost like an opal. The windows are tinted very darkly, but it's the green rims that make the Porsche pop off the page. The green is a neon color and I have no clue how they decided to make just the rims green. Maybe they're trying it out before changing other parts of the car. Usually I see green on a black Porsche with green accents in the paint job. This one is white and while it's not my thing it's an interesting choice.

This Porsche drawing had me doing a double take. At first I thought it was a Volkswagen Beetle, but on the second look I realized the front end was longer than the typical rounds Beetle, leading me to the 356. This 356 is simple with minimal lines and a soft base color. The wheels and bottom seem to be in a grey instead of a dark black which makes the car seem softer. This is a very cool drawing, love the simplicity and the detail.

Porsche tends to bring out the artist, or art admirer in many Pfanatics. This artist took to pen and paper to create a beautiful Porsche 911 Singer in white. My favorite parts are the roundness of the headlights, that subtle shadow that highlights the wheel wells. I think it gives the image great depth and dimension. Not to mention the windshield with the shadow, it's all very great. What a cool rendering of a great Porsche.
