Arthur Kar's Porsche obsession has come full circle, with the exclusively designed Porsche 968 L'ART by L’Art de L’automobile.
Kar's appreciation of car culture is well documented, having begun working on automobiles as a mechanic in his early teens and developing this relationship with cars to create an enriching creative experience.
The frequency of motor collaborations has been steadily rising, with cross-cultural partnerships bringing a greater appreciation for motor design. Fashion, in particular, has played home to many such collabs, with Virgil Abloh, Heron Preston, and Rhude tapping into motorsport.
This isn't the first time that the Porsche-obsessed Kar has linked up with the German automobile manufacturer, with the pair previously coming together to create a collaborative t-shirt. Their latest creative endeavor takes this relationship a step further.
For the 30th anniversary of the iconic Porsche 968, L’Art de L’automobile designed an in-house version of the car that celebrates its heritage, while updating the classic with new features. Dressed in "Green Pearl," the 968 L'ART is the sports car of dreams.
The Porsche 968 L'ART will be displayed at the Porsche & L’Art de l’Automobile exhibition from September 30 to October 3 at 35-37 rue des Francs Bourgeois 75003 Paris.
