Porsche is known for its special edition vehicles and exclusive models that are only available for the select few, and no we aren’t talking about standard Porsche vehicles. One new select model that Porsche is showing off is the Panamera Turbo Executive. This hot red hatch is exciting both inside and out, it packs some impressive power figures and it’s a car that I wouldn’t mind having sitting in my garage. Though the Executive itself is rare enough, this is actually a special edition of the vehicle by Porsche Exclusive, meaning it has even more special features to brag about.
Porsche Exclusive is a special segment of the company that specializes in bringing custom Porsche vehicles to life. If you have a special request that can’t be accommodated by the standard customization features for a particular Porsche vehicle, this department can help grant your wishes for a price. For instance, back in the 1950’s a customer had a Porsche 356 covered in fur for a very custom looking ride. Of course this probably isn’t something that you’d want done today (or maybe you do, we’re not judging!) but it just shows that the automaker is willing to customize the vehicle as much as you’d like them to if you have the cash to back up the wishes.
This latest entry from the Porsche Exclusive department offers some pretty cool customizations. The car comes equipped with a black and Bordeaux Red interior lined with custom leather and red stitching. The clock is red-faced and there is a set light-up doorsill guards made from carbon fiber. The key fob is also a matching red and black tone that helps complete that special custom look.
Getting Custom Designs in the States
In the old days customers concerned with getting a custom Porsche would have to hop on a flight over to Zuggenhausen or travel to Leipzig. That’s not necessary any longer. Now it’s possible to get all the customizations set up right at the Atlanta Experience Center, or in Los Angeles. The company also offers a car configurator tool, allowing you to adjust all the different features of a vehicle before finally meeting for the appointment.
This particular custom vehicle has a starting price of $161,050 with another $3,300 for the red paint job, another $6,000 for the SportDesign package, and we’re betting a bit more for the other enhancements throughout. It’s a small price to pay for a custom Porsche with both power and sophistication, and many people are willing to pay to get exactly what they are looking for.
On the day of the opening ceremonies at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, tennis champion Maria Sharapova joined Porsche to unveil a special edition Panamera GTS in her honor, the Porsche Panamera GTS by Maria Sharapova. Sharapova’s interpretation of the Panamera demonstrates how a standard production car can be transformed into a unique and bespoke luxury sedan by adding exclusive custom options.
“Creating and specifying a very personal Porsche Panamera GTS was such an exciting undertaking. It opens the door to a whole new design sensibility and allowed me to bring my own personal aesthetic.” said Sharapova. “It’s an ingenious melding of the design world with automotive personalization.”
The Porsche Panamera GTS by Maria Sharapova is distinguished by a number of Porsche Exclusive options that extend beyond the already extensive list of extravagant modifications made available to customers. The exterior color is Carrera White with sporty, high-gloss touches provided by the black LED main headlights that include the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, the tinted LED rear lights, the black tailpipe covers of the exhaust system and the 20-inch Panamera sports wheels in black. Among the exclusive options, the custom Panamera GTS by Maria Sharapova includes an extended leather trim in the interior with decorative stitching in creme and a partial carbon fiber trim. The instrument dials and vehicle key are painted to match the Carrera White body color. The front and rear headrests are embossed with the Porsche crest and the armrests are customized with the “Panamera GTS” model logo. The carbon fiber door guards also feature “Maria Sharapova” lettering.
