So you’ve decided to order a new Porsche. Next you’ll need to pick what model you want. Porsche currently offers five lines, with numerous variants available of each.
But even once you’ve narrowed it down to which version of the 911, 718, Panamera, Macan, or Cayenne you want, you’ll still have a lot of choices to make. And the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur department doesn’t make it any easier.
Zuffenhausen’s personalization department has been customizing the German performance automobiles for decades. And today it offers a staggering array of options, on top of those offered as standard from the factory.
Take this Panamera, for example. It’s a four-door Turbo model – just one of 16 engine and bodystyle combinations offered. Porsche Exclusive has done this one up in a light shade of grey called Chalk in the US, or Crayon overseas.
It’s rolling on what looks like a set of 21-inch alloys that are just one of a baker’s dozen wheel options available, with red brake calipers. Inside it’s all decked out in brown leather, with unique aluminum and wood trim and an anthracite Alcantara headliner. Pretty nice, if you ask us. And Porsche Design offers just the watch to go with it, too.
There’s at least $10k in options, and those are just the ones we can see. This on top of the $150k starting price for a new Panamera Turbo. And that’s not even the most expensive variant offered. Go for the top-of-the-line Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive, with its plug-in hybrid powertrain and long wheelbase, and you’ll be looking at nearly $200k before you even delve into the long list of options.
