Porsche 2009 Motorsport Collection Now Available

Are you a Porsche owner? Even if not, the new Porsche Motorsposrt Collection is now available for any enthusiast. Just so you have an idea of the connection between the German manufacturer and the motorsport industry, let us tell you that the Porsche Supercup and 24-hour races on the Nürburgring are just two examples of what Porsche is involved in.

As it happens in any sports, there has to be one thing that unites everyone who attends these events. In this case, whether drivers, teams or fans, is the fascination for the racetrack. For the start of the new season, Porsche Design Driver's Selection has launched a new motorsport summer collection, inspired by the official team clothing of the works drivers, in limited edition.

Let's take for example the "All-weather GORE-TEX Jacket" in white and gray. It is modeled on motorsport racing suits. Intricate tape-sealing technology ensures protection against wind and rain. With their motorsport logos on the left breast, a large Porsche logo on the back, together with sponsors' names, only 911 of these jackets will be produced.

The collection's rain jacket and vest are also windproof and water-repellent and have been inspired by classical motorsport team clothing. The collection is rounded off by polo and rugby shirts, a fleece jacket, shirt and T-shirt.

Like the men's collection, the women's collection is in timeless white and a subtle gray, and is finished with classical motorsport details. The women's collection includes a top, polo shirt and T-shirt. The motorsport top can be fastened at the neck.

Younger motorsport fans were not neglected, with the red and white Children's T-shirt together with a matching cap. The collection is completed by matching accessories such as a cap, lanyard, fabric belt and collectors cup. For the summer, the collection also offers a beach towel and knee-length board shorts.

The new summer collection has something else in common with the cars: its steep prices. Items from Porsche Design Driver's Selection are available at Porsche Centers and on the Internet at www.porsche.com/shop. Porsche announced that some of the products may be available only in certain countries.
