Geneva 4 March 2003 The Stola GTS on display in the stand of STOLA s.p.a.Geneva 4 March 2003 The Stola GTS on display in the stand of STOLA s.p.a.
In those years, there were many opportunities for meetings with extraordinary men from the automotive world.
One of these was with Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, which took place between 1998 and 1999 on the occasion of the construction of two style models of the Cayenne, for the Porsche Design studio in Zell am See.
Interesting moments in his office would be the inspiration for two Stola S.p.A. prototypes a few years later. the S82 and the GTS and later with STUDIOTORINO with the Ruf RK Spyder and RK Coupè and finally the Moncenisio.
Precisely in March 2003, at the Geneva Motor Show, Stola S.p.A. presented the GTS prototype, based on the Porsche Boxter Type 986 with the iconic Gulf livery.
Alfredo Stola, remembering the collection of scale models in the Professor's office, in the spring of 2003 after the Salon, sent the first 1/43 example hand-made by the Brianza brothers together with the CD for journalists, directly to Porsche Design, via DHL.
It was truly incredible, many years later, to see his photographic portrait in his office published in 2012 in the book “Origin of the species” by Karl Ludvigsen, with the same GTS model with the CD for journalists on his right on the desk.

This photo portrait of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in his office in Zell am See appears in Karl Ludvigsen's book “The Origin of the Species” published in 2012.
It seems that this shot is from September 2003. At the bottom left on the desk you can see the scale model of the Stola GTS with the CD for journalists on it.

 

 Friendships and personal relationships born from a pure and shared passion are strong and on going. Men from the automobile industry, passionate people, and in particular "style and engineering masters" are an example and an uninterrupted source of inspiration for Studiotorino.
