Egg Roadster with Pilot Karlos.

Luft was inspired by a very chic 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa that Playforever's founder Julian Meagher owned while living in Florence, Italy for 2 years. This car in a beautiful shade of ivory was perfect for buzzing around the hills of Tuscany and most certainly made every school run an absolute pleasure. We started designing the form of Luft without any details whatsoever apart from the wrap around Targa band which seemed to be the way to go. So, we put all our balls on and went for it knowing full well that countless 911 fans and car designers would be scrutinising our work. Luckily we pulled it off and we are very happy with how it turned out.

All this brash confidence was a tangible force driving aesthetics and pushing boundaries. Turbo captures the spirit and magic of the most infectious decade ever.
