Each year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a single marque is celebrated with a large and ornate "Central Feature" sculpture, with recent automakers including Audi in 2009, Alfa Romeo in 2010, Jaguar in 2011 and Lotus last year. This year, Porsche gets the honor, and it is using the opportunity to commemorate 50 years of the 911.

The sculpture features three generations of the 911 towering over the Goodwood House. The most recent 991 911 has the lowest position, with an original 1963 car second highest and a 1973 2.7 RS at the top of the pile. Be sure to check out the sculpture for yourself in the gallery of images above.

      Cool sculpture I guess Porsche has not got around to fixing that over-steer problem j/k

      Stunning. That's worth a "how it's made" story.

      Well that doesn't appear to be safe.

      Wow, another amazing Goodwood sculpture. This one seems to defy gravity, and impress with its engineering.

      I'm getting nervous just looking at it. Very cool piece. I'd be interested to know how they bolted the cars down and anchored the statue. Also, wonder if the 1973 Porsche engineers were anticipating water sealing requirements from that angle in the rain...

        I agree with you, it is staggering to think how such a seemingly spindley yet elegant sculpture can anchor cars so high up, let alone three very desirable Porsches. Very intriguing piece.

      "1973 2.7 RS at the top of the pile" Appropriately enough, that is the car that sits atop my personal automotive wish list. That is a 911 pure and simple.

      They're probably well anchored below ground; like a bunch of L's
