The Whale Tail Project
is a Tribute to Porsche Classic Cars and the Brand’s Legendary Racing History.
Johans Lamic uses original Porsche parts and colors only, so each Whale Tail comes with its own 40-50-year-old road trip-memories.
The iconic Whale Tail was first introduced on the 1975 930 turbo, a legendary car for a whole generation due to the first addition of a turbo to the engine, the specific wider look and driving characteristics due to the turbo lag and oversteering.
Johans reinterprets the iconic 930 turbo spoiler by reworking its shape and repainting that iconic canvas in the most legendary racing liveries,
while the idea behind the drops is reminiscent of the original
aerodynamical function of the object.
As air is a liquid, the drops symbolize fluidity and speed.
Lamic’s work is a fusion of his passions and experiences, combining multiple techniques. He takes pride in creating pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing with the highest attention to detail but are also to specifications that are historically correct.
Every series is strictly limited to 11 pieces and there will be only 9 series in total which makes it very exclusive collector´s items.
