How Has The ‘Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’ Program Changed Over Decades – Quirky and Tasteful Examples Listed!
Porsche builds very special cars, thereby fulfilling unusual customer requirements – this has always been top priority. Because something truly exceptional isn’t simply created anyhow, anywhere. It’s created in a very special place. With craftsmanship, experience and passion. And using the inspiration of the customer. Masters of their craft transfer these ideas to the car, along with the buyer’s personality – thereby turning a Porsche into ‘your’ Porsche.
In the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, it is raised to the maxim with the highest principles. With the goal of realising personal customer requests and thereby creating special vehicles. For every type and every model. To turn something special into something extraordinary. We have traced the creative process from special request programme to Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur:
