The name derives from Type 7, the first Prototype for what later turned out to be the 911. The Type 7 proves, that even the most successful journey starts with the first step. You may even get stuck, but success can be achieved with the right mentality.
Woo has such finesse and detail that it is impossible to describe unless you see it in person. I never wanted a tattoo on my body until I met Woo. I went to his shop where he was working, back then, on Sunset Boulevard and he tattooed me. Immediately, we began a friendship based on a mutual connection. When I was in LA, I would always stop inside his shop just to hang out and exchange creative ideas.
The way he thinks about his career and his art is the same way I think about my work with L’Art. I really feel like he has come from another planet, here to inspire us all.” - Arthur Kar (@lartdelautomobile) @_dr_woo_
We could easily spend a week dedicated to covering each of the projects he is currently involved in, but on our recent trip to Tokyo it was his Rainforest Green Metallic 996 Carrera 4 that had us worked up; “It’s my first Porsche, and I just fell in love immediately with the color. The green is so unique to see in the landscape of Tokyo.”
It’s easy to spot from a mile away, and not terribly difficult to find as he’s often cruising the streets of Shibuya, usually in tandem with our friend @junyamatano and his 964.
“It’s not so common still to see the 996 around Tokyo, but I think this is changing. People are waking up to the shape of this car, it is such a friendly shape. It makes me smile just to look at it.” @poggytheman
For so long, there has been a distorted perception of women equating their driving experiences to running errands (driving SUVs) or as poor drivers. Following that, when people think ‘girls and cars’ they’re most likely to think of them as show ponies or pinup dolls, not the thrill seeker behind the wheel. However, perceptions are changing for the better, women are being taken more seriously and are increasingly shaping and rippling through the automotive industry, putting that misogyny to rest.
The simple fact is, women love to drive, we love to feel liberated. When I’m driving, it’s the only time I feel like I’m in complete control, calm and free. There is a sense of euphoria and power about commanding something beyond myself, and I know a lot of women can relate (...). @jk.spec
