-Exclusive design sketch as a non-fungible token-
Berlin, Germany (August 4, 2021) – Together with FANZONE.io Porsche Germany is realising a NFT pilot project. Until Friday, 6 August 2021, collectors and Porsche fans will have the opportunity to purchase at auction an exclusive design sketch by Peter Varga, Director Exterior Design, via the US platform SuperRare. The special feature of the unique drawing is that it will be offered as a digital and physical asset; the total proceeds will be donated to the non-profit organisation Viva con Agua.che.
The sports car manufacturer is realising the project together with Fanzone.io – a new NFT platform for digital trading cards. The company builder Forward31 – a business unit of Porsche Digital GmbH – founded the Berlin start-up in June 2021. The young company operates an online platform www.fanzone.io on which fans can collect and exchange digital player cards as NFT and also profit from their increase in value.
Fanzone uses blockchain technology to ensure the rarity and identity of the collector’s items. “With the NFT initiative, we are once again demonstrating the pioneering spirit typical of Porsche, with which we are always boldly entering new terrain,” says Alexander Pollich, CEO of Porsche Deutschland. “With NFT, we are addressing existing Porsche customers, who are often passionate collectors, as well as new, younger target groups with a high affinity for digital trends. What is also especially pleasing for me is the fact that the initiative for the project was developed in our internal innovation process and implemented within a few months.”
“Drawing a design sketch which is then traded online as a digital object was a completely new experience for me,” says Peter Varga, Director Exterior Design at Porsche. “The sketch combines the Taycan Cross Turismo with the 911. It links the design language of our iconic sports car with that of the youngest member of the model range. I look forward to seeing the response generated by this unique item among the auction participants.”
