For nearly half a century, Porsche’s Turbo models have held a revered status within the brand, representing the pinnacle of performance for each model series. In a move to further emphasize its exclusivity, Porsche is now introducing a significant aesthetic enhancement across its Turbo lineup. Central to this update is the addition of a new and exclusive color tone named Turbonite, replacing the traditional gold in the modernized crest. This elegant metallic grey, specifically developed for the Turbo models, adds an air of sophistication and uniqueness to the exterior and interior details.
The new Panamera generation is set to lead this transition, with its world premiere scheduled for November 24, 2023. According to Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche, the Turbo models have evolved into a brand of their own since the introduction of the turbocharged 911 in 1974. This latest initiative aims to make the Turbo versions more visible and distinct from other derivatives like the GTS, through a consistent and special Turbo aesthetic across all model series.
The Turbonite shade is not limited to the crest but extends to various external and internal components, including the rear lettering, the Daylight Opening (DLO), side window borders, and potentially the front apron inlays, spokes, or aero blades in the light alloy wheels, depending on the model. Inside, Turbonite adorns trim strips, belt straps, and controls like the mode switch and air conditioning panel, offering a sleek contrast in a black interior environment. This strategic move by Porsche redefines the Turbo models’ visual identity while reinforcing their standing as top-tier high-performance sports cars, blending luxury with power in a uniquely Porsche way.
