Miguel Paredes: Porsche 911 Speedster.
The 2011 911 Speedster art car was created by famous artist Miguel Paredes in collaboration with Champion Porsche for the 2011 Art Basel. Miguel Paredes, born and raised in New York’s Upper West Side, is an urban realist that specializes in New York graffiti art. Paredes designed a psychedelic Japanese-inspired visage on the 911 Speedster, replete with colorful tones, a geisha on the hood, and lots and lots of flowers.
The Art Basel show brought together more than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa, showcasing more than 2,000 works from artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Porsche 911 Speedster is one of only 356 units ever made by the German company. The limited edition 911 Speedster runs on a 408hp 3.8-liter flax-six engine.
