Inspired by Porsche

"In my eyes, dance and sports cars have a lot in common." Years of practice have given multi-award-winning ballet dancer Friedemann Vogel the perfect body, allowing each muscle to serve art, expression and emotion. At Porsche, we call it "form follows function". And for the last 10 of those years, he's been driving a Porsche.

Common ground of sports cars and dancers: both are athletes

“In my eyes, dance and sports cars have a lot in common. The body of an athlete, for example, has to be fine-tuned very precisely like an engine and the chassis.” You can also see that in Vogel. His training has resulted in a perfect body. But it is not just for show. Each muscle serves art, expression and emotion. At Porsche, they call it “form follows function”. With strong discipline and hard work, Friedemann creates the basis for making his performance on stage completely effortless.
