The automaker also informed that these NFTs were minted in a carbon-neutral way by offsetting them via the Porsche Impact program. The proceeds from this auction will go to the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Taking inspiration from the American abstract expressionists and pop artists of the 1960s, artist Nigel Sense has given the Porsche Taycan EV a look that makes it stand out from the crowd. Launched in 2019, the Taycan EV is the first electric vehicle from the luxury automaker. The brand also informed that Sense’s pieces are also popular amongst Porsche owners. “My work is maps and painted lines that lead to the unknown with symbols and imagery that I have corrected on the way," said Sense.
