Talented artist, Krithin Paul Pereira would not let his physical limitations shatter his car dreams. The 21-year-old that’s diagnosed with cerebral palsy has been a car enthusiast and a Porsche lover since little.
His obsessions with Porsche eventually led him to come up with amazing illustrations and artwork. Through these drawings, he has been reliving his car dreams. From outlining to coloring the car, each stroke of the pen expresses his love for Porshe. This absolutely talented child created masterpieces of car art and even made a live painting of a Porsche car in collaboration with the brand. His family compiled all his precious works of his and self-published an illustrated book about his love for Porsche.
Not just the brand and the cars, but Porsche’s history and story inspired this young man.
“At the age of 13, Krithin had already had dreams and goals to work for Porsche and build a car that has special features for differently abled people to move around in “, said his mother Dr. Ashita Pereira. Krithin already has visions and ideas for the luxury car he wants to design.
The steering wheel would be voice-activated to move according to the driver’s needs. Voice activation, auto-robotic measures, and artificial intelligence, along with modified interiors. -Krithin’s invention ideas-
In 2018, Krithin visited the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. After that visit, he became more driven to make his dreams come to reality one day. Currently enrolled in an automotive course in Kuala Lumpur, this young lad is pursuing his Diploma programme with the International Motor Industry, UK (IMI). His passion for cars grows deeper day by day.
No matter whether physically or mentally challenged one should be strong to push the boundaries and dream big. Krithin is indeed an inspiration to all.
At a young age, this child accomplished so many things, and now his story is part of Porsche Asia Pacific’s Dreamers. The “Driven by Dreams” campaign explores dreams through inspiring and educational stories of the past and present of one.
This gifted young man’s dreams don’t stop here. He will strive to make his ultimate goal, which is to design a sports car.
