The studly badge of Porsche always adds a little something to the travels of those fortunate enough to have them gleaming off the front of their cars, however, the lack of luggage space does not always allow for a comfortably placed bag leaving the ultra cool Porsche owner struggling for a chance to unload his or her travel accessories. Well, the designers over at Porsche Design have come up with a solution to the nagging storage issue. No, we are not talking about a grander amount of space such as in the Porsche Cayenne SUV, but a remedy for the spatially-challenged two-door models.
Porsche Design Driver’s Selection has created a special line of Porsche luggage that will help the occasional traveler, as well as the frequent business traveler, pack for their trips without wondering where they will have to shove their luggage. These exclusive luggage collections fit perfectly in the storage spaces of the Boxster , 911 , Cayman , Cayenne and Panamera . Along with the convenience of size and shape, Porsche Design offers a choice of three different types of collections: the classic “Ultralight” made of light polycarbonate, the Porsche Carfit series made with "AluFrame"-trolleys, or the Panamera leather series. All three models are made in various sizes and come in a choice of the original Porsche vehicle exterior colors.
To round off this incredible collection, Porsche has also created a line of jackets, wallets, handbags, and sunglasses to accessorize every type of Porsche owner. All of these items, along with the luggage collections, can be found on the Porsche website or at Porsche centers around the world.
Press release after the jump
Travelling in a Porsche is always a pleasant experience thanks to the vehicle’s sporting character and dynamic. However, a Porsche driver can always be assured that any holiday doesn’t first start when you arrive, but it starts as soon as you pack! This is ensured by the exclusive and clever luggage collections from Porsche Design Driver’s Selection that fit perfectly into the storage and space concept of the Boxster, 911, Cayman, Cayenne and Panamera.
Careful thought has been put into every detail of the interior of each luggage piece thus turning packing into a child’s play. Whether it’s the classical Porsche Travel System (PTS) "Ultralight" line, the new "AluFrame"-trolleys or the cases and bags from the Porsche Carfit series or the new Panamera leather series – all items of luggage unite first-class design with perfect functionality.
Angular, practical, good – the proved and tested "Ultralight" Porsche Travel System (PTS) made of light polycarbonate, is available in 19 exterior colours, sophisticated in look and offers clever loading options for the Boxster, 911, Cayman, Cayenne and Panamera rear compartment. To coincide with the launch of the four-door Gran Turismo, the Porsche Travel System has been expanded to include a new luggage series: the "AluFrame" trolleys fit perfectly into the Panamera luggage compartment and all other Porsche models. The combination of aluminium frame and polycarbonate shell makes these particularly light and stabile. Flexibly adjustable dividers with interior compartment offer a high degree of convenience while packing. There are three models in various sizes, which are available in the original Porsche vehicle exterior colours.
Attention to detail according to the established craftsmanship of Porsche engineering is also the decisive principle with the Porsche Carfit luggage series. Not only can you load your Porsche easily, packing also becomes an easy task, because careful thought has been put into the interior of each piece of luggage. Pockets for shirts or detachable storage compartments for shoes and accessories are only a few examples of the many practical features that just boost the holiday mood. Diversity is the name of the game when selecting a product from the Porsche Design Driver’s Selection: be it the traditional option of a suitcase, a modern alternative of a trolley or a flight case or a casual variant of a holdall – there is a variety of shapes and sizes for every type of trip. The wheels especially developed for this luggage series are a highlight as they make next to no noise, are durable and have the characteristic Carrera S rims. The robust outer material of nylon and the aluminium base protector typify excellence and quality. The Carfit garment bag and the Carfit shoulder bag round off the basic products as two additional sophisticated travel companions.
Mobile people travelling a lot for business purposes use the pieces of luggage and accessories made of representative and high-quality leather from the new Panamera leather series. The travel bag forms the core of the range thanks to both its practical size making it ideal for short trips and its generous format making it perfect for conferences lasting several days. The espresso coloured robust cowhide lends the bag a sporty and classical charisma. The bag is optimally accessorised with the brief case, wallet and credit card holder in the matching colour. The elegant companion for her is the stylish handbag from the same series that combines enduring design with perfect functionality.
The GORE-TEX Comfort Mapping jacket satisfies a high degree of functionality and combines the best of materials, the most modern of styles and powerful colours. The innovative Comfort Mapping® technology ensures that wearing the jacket is a comfortable experience as it is windproof, waterproof and particularly breathable – in short an excellent travel companion for every season. The All-weather GORE-TEX business jacket offers all these features to the business traveller.
The sporty, travel look is highlighted by the stylish women’s sunglasses or the classical men’s sunglasses from Porsche Design Driver’s Selection. Both pairs of sunglasses are a successful combination of 100 percent UV protection with being very comfortable to wear. The lenses are break-proof and have an anti-reflective coating.
Items from the Porsche Design Driver’s Selection are available at Porsche Centres and – with the exception of the watches – on the Internet at www.porsche.com. Some of these products may be available only in certain countries.
