Porsche Turbo models handed a sharper look
For many years, Porsche’s Turbo models have occupied a special place in the manufacturer's range simply because they represent the pinnacle of performance, technology, and innovation in the world of sports cars.
You will recall how the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT left a long-lasting impression as an SUV that makes a statement for itself and among its main rivals. And who could forget the 997 GT2, aptly named the ‘widow maker’? It earned this nickname thanks its tendency to really challenge the driver.
Now Porsche is giving its Turbo range a subtle makeover in the form of an exclusive version of the modernised crest, which is now finished in a Turbonite colour tone instead of gold.
According to Porsche, the colour has been developed exclusively for the Turbo variants; however, it can also be used on several other exterior and interior bits and pieces. These include the lettering on the rear and the daylight opening, the borders of the side windows, and, depending on the model series, the Turbonite finish will be applied to the inlays in the front aprons, spokes, or the aero blades in the light alloy wheels.
Regarding the interior, the exclusive shade will be applied to places such as the trim strips and belt straps, as well as several controls, including the mode switch and the air conditioning control panel. Porsche also says that the Turbonite colour is also being used as a contrasting shade for the yarn on the seats, door panel trims, instrument panels, and floor mats.
While the Stuttgart-based carmaker aims to introduce the new changes to its entire Turbo range in the coming months, its Panamera range will be the first to introduce the changes.
While the alterations may appear understated, they serve to enhance the allure of the Turbo models, bestowing upon them an air of exclusivity. This not only elevates their aesthetic appeal but also provides their owners with an extra sense of pride.
