Porsche 1999
The Porsche Selection program

Exclusive and individual

Porsche Selection, the accessories program, offers Porsche friends and enthusiasts selected products (from high-tech mountain bikes to pins) at a high quality level in an individual design, according to the style of the Porsche customers.

A highlight in the luggage collection of the 1999 model year is the new Porsche Design luggage line with a noble look made of extremely durable black nylon, which is processed in combination with high-quality metal fittings and leather-covered Porsche Design handles. Like the Carfit series, it is specially tailored to the storage space available in Porsche sports cars.

Also new is the small leather collection made of black cowhide with a cross grain, which is based on the case series in terms of its visual and tactile appearance. This leather series, handcrafted in Germany, impresses with its exclusive design and precise workmanship.

With its range of sporting goods, Porsche-Selection not only thinks of bike enthusiasts, but also offers fans of the white sport innovative products with its new tennis rackets "Pro" and "Pro Plus". These carbon clubs developed for Porsche are made from one piece using a new manufacturing process (filament winding). As a result, the properties of the racket can be tailored exactly to the needs of the game.

One of the outstanding highlights of the textile collection is the new multifunctional jacket in a classic, sporty outdoor shape - a "combination genius" actually consisting of three jackets. In addition, there is the sports leather jacket made of black premium horse leather. The latter has a large number of useful and lovingly processed details such as a built-in cell phone pocket and a detachable fur collar.

The new sports collection in black and white with accentuating red, which was developed in collaboration with renowned designers from today's sports scene, is also attractive. The materials are functional, the cuts offer plenty of freedom of movement.

The selection program also includes attractive lifestyle articles in an elegant, timeless look with a silk-matt surface. The new sterling silver products with 911 and Boxster motifs (pins, tie clips, key rings and cufflinks) are characterized by their exclusive design and selected materials.

The watch program has been expanded to include a non-limited version of the 911 automatic chronograph; the sunglasses model "Tach" is also available in a second color variant.

Porsche has added motorsport-related themes to its art reproductions. Original design sketches of the 911 GT 1 in limited edition from the Weissach studio are the ideal gift for Porsche enthusiasts. Drivers and enthusiasts are the new GT 1 calendar, which documents various racing appearances of the victorious Le Mans vehicles with 12 design sketches.

The history of Porsche vehicles and especially Le Mans successes is also reflected in the limited model car series "History Le Mans" , which contains seven major Le Mans sports cars in 1:43 scale.
