The 2006 film „Cars” made by Pixar tells the story of a race car that falls in love with Sally Carrera, a Porsche 911. Pixar creates a life-size model of the cartoon character for marketing purposes. Within seven months, a Porsche 911 undergoes significant modifications to keep the comic style. The wheelbase is reduced, the roof raised. The doors, wings, glasses, headlights, door entry guard and bumper were all rebuilt. Despite numerous modifications to all of the car´s components, the cartoon Porsche can still be driven, even today.
