There was something very special about the 2006 animated movie “A Car’s Life” as it made us forget the worries of life for a few hours at that time and compelled us to enjoy the little cute actions. The film was pure enjoyment for most of us, and you would be thrilled to know that after seeing this love for the car, Sally Carrera, in the movie, Porsche collaborated with Pixar and gave birth to this cute animated car. The Porsche 911 Sally Carrera has now been revived out of the movie and the news has made the fans over-excited.
Dr. Sebastian Rudolph, who is the Vice President of Communications, Sustainability, and Politics at Porsche AG, said, “Vehicles need a face and a story. And the animated Pixar’s film ‘Cars’ has impressively transferred done just that: brought cars to life on the big screen.” He added, “The story conveys values such as friendship, love, and mutual support-and in the middle of it all is a Porsche: ‘Sally Carrera.’ Together with Pixar, we have brought the spirit of Sally to life in a new way, not on the screen but off the screen. With this one-off street legal 911, the ‘Sally Special,’ which we are auctioning for charity, we want to help people who urgently need support, quite in keeping with the spirit of the film character. “
It should be noted that the manufacturing of the car started back in November 2021, and has taken almost more than half a year till its completion. Moreover, the staff involved in its production have mixed views. They said that, for them, the project was the most emotional one as it involved the entire transformation of this car by bringing it into reality. Undoubtedly, both Porsche and Pixar enjoyed the project to the fullest and made the production of this unusual marvel possible.
Jay Ward, Creative Director of Franchise of Pixar Animation Studios, said, “We had great fun creating 911 Sally Special, and it’s the first time we’ve worked on a project of this kind. We decided early on that we wanted to create a completely drivable 911 – inspired by Sally Carrera, but just not an exact copy. Sally Carrera loves to drive; that was our inspiration. We asked ourselves: if Sally were built today as a road-approved model, what would she look like?”
The whole journey, from its inception to the end, is unquestionably beautiful. It is further explained by Boris Apenbrink, who is the director of Porsche Exclusive Manufacture vehicles, “The 911 Sally Special is based on the fastest and most agile variant of the 911 Carrera model line, the 911 Carrera GTS. The car is equipped with a manual gearbox, tapping into Sally Carrera’s passion for driving. “
He added, “The customization elements are detailed and extensive. 911 Sally Special was one of the most intense, emotional, and detailed Sonderwunsch projects our team has worked on. One example is that the car is painted in Sallybluemetallic, a custom paint that was hand-applied specifically for this project. We also thought of Sally’s tattoo, of course. Implementing that was a very special challenge.” To that count, this Porsche 911 Sally Carrera would be displayed for auction for charity by RM Sotheby’s on Saturday, 20 August, during Monterey Car Week in California, “as per the reports.
