Especially for the winter season, Porsche Design Driver’s Selection has developed a Porsche Design Plastic Bobsleigh which in 2010 received the global acknowledged “red dot” Award for high quality design. The inspiration for this bobsleigh was drawn from the racing bobsleigh. Thus its runners are based on the engineering of these professional sports devices and are almost as effective. Both have a so-called ‘spring’ in the runners, giving the bobsleigh its excellent steerability. This slight lengthways bend is scarcely visible, yet it certainly makes itself felt during the descent. It can be compared to the side cut of modern carving skis. Also easy to handle is the folding Aluminum Sledge, which is ready for use in just a few seconds. Self-developed stainless steel runners ensure a fast and safe ride.
Another perfect gift for the chilly Christmas season is the dark blue Outdoor jacket in yachting style. The fabric, 90 percent wool and 10 percent cashmere, makes it pleasantly warm and comfortable to wear. For business travel, the Porsche Design Driver’s Selection offers the All-weather GORE-TEX business jacket in black. The jacket has two double side pockets and various inner pockets. A discreet Porsche script adorns the inner lining. Those who prefer a sporting look can choose between a black Leather jacket with detachable faux fur collar, or a Comfort Mapping jacket with special warmth zones.
Sporty racing drivers both large and small will love to compete – indoors – on the new 911 GT3 Cup Racetrack set. The individual route features of the 8.3 meter circuit, which is based on the Carrera Race Track Digital 143, demand the highest concentration. The racetrack set, with two lane-change points, comes complete with two exclusive Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race cars on a scale of 1:43.
Those who wish to send Christmas greetings by e-mail can do so in style, with the computer mouse in Porsche 911 design. It was created at the Porsche Research and Development Center in Weissach and is equipped with a 2000 dpi sensor, 2.4 GHz-technology and an aluminum scroll wheel. For handwritten messages, there is an aluminum ballpoint pen or ink rollerball with Porsche logo.
Month by month the limited edition Style calendar that was developed by the designers of the Research and Development Center in Weissach captures the theme of “Porsche Intelligent Performance” in shape and color. The official Porsche calendar 2011. also picks up the “Porsche Intelligent Performance” topic, depicting the various hybrid models on three pages and featuring a wide spectrum of Porsche sports vehicles in the other month pages. Instead of design graphics, the dominant medium in the Porsche calendar is realistic photography of automobiles against highly dynamic landscapes in abstract tones and strong areas of color. Just perfect to keep the overview of 2011 and 2012 as well as for important notes and appointments serves the Porsche diary.
