Porsche 911 is perhaps the first sports car that a man learns when he is a child is a real icon of serious traditions. Did they know that a young Hungarian designer for a while looks at how the newer models on this icon look?

We are now in the midst of current problems with Péter Varga, who has worked for more than a decade at Porsche's design center for weissach and the main car form for two and a half years.

hvhu.hu: So why is there a kamu tailpipe for Porsche's first electric car, Taycana on the back? The car can only be seen on the streets while testing, rubbing it, but we also saw the special exhaust pipes.

Péter Varga: Of course, of course. It's a gag, a little freak. And before I even ask who he was, I'll come in, mine. Taycan will be on the street in a year and a half, we are still working on small things. We have been with the development manager and we have found that there is not much to do with this car because it is so different from the others, but it is a strange thing. But of course there is no need for the exhaust pipes, and it will not stop there.

huh: what about the work of today, what does it mean if it's not a secret?

V. P .: Let's say you can find out which cars I'm working with. This year's new generation 911 comes here, so we're already ready to go. otherwise 2-4 years, when a model is finished, I do pretty much what I do on the street in 2021 as a news. And in further development, we are even farther away from 2025. But if we're here it's always up to what's going to happen in the long run: drive cars that come or drive? Much sure, Porsche is built to control anyone. The device is secondary, but a Porsch would give up driving someone, not a priority. At the same time, a strong brand can transfer all conversions to its products.

hvhu.hu: How much is the design back to consumer expectations, what cars do they want?

V. P .: This is a marketing task, we serve them with two- and three-dimensional models that can be tested in the audience. It already changes how much this result affects our work. Thirty years ago, a model could cover several continents. Has VW Bogár, for example, been working in many countries? Almost everywhere. Today, however, the difference between Porsche customers is enormous. In fact, the youngest age group does not take our cars, but not just because of the money they will have for people later.

In China, for example, 10 to 15 years younger are saved who have a lot of money. They are more worried that a brand is attractive. If a European asks what Porsche thinks, the 911 model will be mentioned. But the Chinese have a completely different story, thinking of Cayenne, Porsche's leisure car. Trademark history is not really known. The other is that Porsche works with a design kit that has perfect technology, but it is not always a strong impulse for consumers in countries that are getting richer soon.

V. P. CV

The Hungarian designer graduated from Zalaegerszeg and then started working in Germany while studying at Pforzheim University where he graduated in Vehicle Science. She joined Porsche for her internship, and she was already on Porsches one of the most expensive cars in the first generation of Panamera.

Since then, ten years have passed and models like Porsche 911 (code 991), Cayenne, 718 Boxster / Cayman, second-generation Panamera and now the last 911 (code 992) as well as the design of the new era, the electric Taycan.

hvhu.hu: SUV madness rages in the world, while in China, for example, the one-child regime is over, consumer demands can turn to family cars again.

V. P .: Everyone on the freight cars is very successful. For years I have been with 911, so I did not even think it was so much positive for Porsche Cayenne than I ever experienced. It radiates other forces outward, but when you sit down, it can be a lot more relaxed to drive and see the traffic. The size, proportions and usefulness, the higher seating position needed in the city, are the decisive in success. It's no coincidence that even future SUV models, like Volkswagen Tiguan, have great success.

hvhu.hu: How do you figure out what's cool?

V. P .: Every week, we hold a so-called trend presentation that not only comes with strictly driving themes but everything that is design. All designers are invited, experts scan the internet, try to find out more efficiently. But I have to admit that this is our job, and it's probably good, it has no direct effect. We build our own creativity. The team is very mixed, sixty percent is not German. Japanese, Korean, Austrian, French. There are two kids, they are not designers without computer models.

In the car show comes new, more and more different generations. For example, South Koreans now want to have a lot. It was not long ago, because when I learned in 2004 there were hardly any pictures. Now they have their own studios, and in some way this car show is now very dominant. They want to come to Europe and get lots of applications from them. The amount is of course not always a quality, but if you are trained you can also train from Porsch as a trainee, then there is room for me, for example, I have 11 designers, and we try to find a position.

hvhu.hu: Tell us about cars that are all classic for something.

V. P .: the Fiat Panda, which is a small box, not the most expensive car, is not the fastest, but very characteristic. the Land Rover Defender or a DeLorean, a Back to the Future movie car, a childhood love fascinated. the Jaguar E-type or a Renault 5 Turbo, but I would put everyone on a line, all I think is. If we look at Porsche then a Porsche 550 Spyder or the earliest Porsche 911 Turbo.

hvhu.hu: How do you see your work later?

V. P .: In 2003, I was first at Porsch in Weissach when I was invited to a show. The door was open, I only saw Porsches everywhere. And not Cayenne, Macan, Panama's leisure cars, only 911 everywhere. I did not want to go home from there then. Even now, when I finish a job, this year's show in Geneva Mission E Cross, and at last people see it, then my heart becomes full.
