The car manufacturing industry is moving to Web3 by kickstarting its initiatives this month. After the successful launch of Lamborghini NFTs, Porsche is also ready to debut its first NFT collection in January 2023 while BMW has submitted a US application for NFT and metaverse trademarks.
On Nov 29, Porsche announced they have partnered with a famous 3D designer Patrick Vogel to create 7,500 NFTs featuring the legendary Porsche 911. The holders can utilize different customization tools and even have their own unique combination of rarity traits.
Furthermore, holders can also select one out of three roads: Performance, Heritage, and Lifestyle to enjoy an immersive 3D experience.
“The NFT artworks enable us to take our understanding of modern luxury and the unique brand positioning of Porsche into the digital world,” said Detlev von Platen, a Porsche executive.
According to the official statement, once the collection is sold out, the holders can claim a 3D model in Unreal Engine 5 of their NFTs designed by Voxel along with various IRL and digital experiences.
On the other hand, BMW might be revving up for the Web3 world following its recent logo trademark filing regarding non-fungible tokens, metaverse, and other virtual files manufactured by the car brand.
Although the company hasn’t shared any hints of launching on metaverse, this filing indicates that the team might be considering it.
