You might as well consider this article an open letter to the Porsche engineers. Perhaps they could take their attention from the Le Mans preparations and tell us what the aerodynamic implications of wrapping a car in velvet are.
The question comes after we’ve seen the adjacent images, which show a Porsche Panamera in the UK that has received such a treatment, becoming the first vehicle of this kind in the country.

The wrapping job was handled by Raccoon, the company that handled all the 120 cars for this year’s Gumball 3000 Rally. The owner, who wanted to remain anonymous, was charged GBP2,500 (EUR or USD at the current exchange rates) for the transformation.

Raccoon assures us that the material is suitable for the job:  The Velvet Elite Wrap 9100 is a flexible 720 microns film engineered to be applied to the inside or outside of vehicles. It is coated with special adhesives and durable textile fibers to withstand severe weather conditions. It really does perform well and our experienced applications team didnt notice any difficulties when wrapping the Porsche Panamera.”

“Caring for the wrap is no different to a conventional vinyl film and the wrap can be removed by professionals at any point to restore the Porsche to its just 'off the production' line finish,” the company ads.

We’ll file this under “Overkill” (we're really sorry for the Panamera), add a soundtrack and move on.
