I need to find a big enough flatbed and I would!

I happen to have access to a large printer, but not scanner.

Funny

What year did this ad come out? I totally remember seeing it back in the day.

Staples will do large scans. Have had them scan house plans for about $2 per page.

Hi,
on my search for the targa poster, i found this thread.
is there a chance to get one of those?
i'm looking either for a poster to buy (but i'm not willing to pay 999$, i'd invest ~100$.
but - of course - i would love to have a high res scan.
has anybody found something like that meanwhile?

porsche4life, you wrote in #42, you would scan, if you had a big enough scanner. da911 recommended staples in #44. thats the last post. did that work?
is there a chance to get such a scan?
would a little financial incentive help?

help me!

I would bet money that Staples or any other commercial service provider will not scan it. It is a copyrighted image. They could be fined $250,000 or more.

I asked one staples and they didn't have a big enough flatbed. They suggested to check other stores. I just haven't had a chance. It's in a tube on a shelf and keeps getting forgotten about! Let me call around, I'll tell them it's for archival purposes!!!

I highly doubt that it would be enforced. It's not an official Porsche publication, and maxell made it as promo item, not something they'd be looking to recreate I bet.

I might be able to find someone in the studios to do it on a large format scanner. I'll check.

There are two companion advertisements/posters. The most commonly seen one is where the model is sitting next to a set of speakers and the sound is apparently blasting his hair and clothes back. The other photo is of the "exploding" targa top. The first one is fairly easy to find and isn't all that expensive because Maxell owns the rights to the photo and they license it periodically for reproductions. Steigman kept the right to the Porsche photo and neither he nor his estate have licensed it for reproduction. Apparently he licensed it to Maxell for the ad campaign and kept the rights afterword. So all of the Porsche posters are original to the ad or the poster that was sold or given away briefly without the ad copy when the ad campaign came out. That's why the Porsche posters are rare and expensive.

For what it's worth, the estate holds the rights to the Porsche poster and enforce the copywrite. I don't know if a commercial copier would object or not.

I have the top one. Just to clarify. I'll see if I can get a scan done this week.

I've been looking for a good quality original for a while. If anyone can provide a high-def. scan (like 600 dpi or better) of the full-size (24x36?) poster I'd love to get my hands on it - I have access to a high-res plotter and would just print up a couple of copies for myself then frame & mount.

A proper scanned image (.tif) is going to be pretty large - probably on the order of 100-200MB.

There is a simple sentence in the world of copyright. If it was created, it is copyrighted.

As long as you don't try to sell the scans or the prints and do it for yourself you are likely OK. It you distribute it, they CAN come after you big time. And for sure don't put a Porsche logo on there. Porsche AG would be all over you. Just be prudent.

hey, it would be so(!) great, if the scanning would work out!
quality note: if possible, it would be great to have a quality for printing it in 90x60.
filesize doesnt matter
hopefully .. ;p
