Porsche Design upgraded the Driver’s Selection lineup with new lifestyle apparel and accessories. The new collection celebrates the motorsport heritage of the Porsche 917.
The cool thing is, these items are actually made of the same materials Porsche make its cars from. The new ‘PTS’ luggage line for example, is fashioned from the same cloth used in Porsche 911 and Boxster convertible tops. Accents on the luggage are made from seatbelt webbing and door pull webbing from the 911 GT3, Boxster Spyder and Cayman R models. They also offer a a new rolling suitcase specifically made for children features red piping with a blue exterior and Porsche 911 Turbo print.
Other interesting items include a mouse pad made from the same leather used in Porsche vehicle interiors and an organizer portfolio made from the same leather. That pad goes very will with the new 917 Salzburg computer mouse.
The most collectible item is a ceramic bank in the design of the Porsche 917/20 – “pink pig”. It is actually a piggy bank with a lockable opening for removing coins, and stands on a piston.
Many of the new items will be on display at the Porsche display on Peter Hay Hill at Pebble Beach during Monterey Classic Car Week in Monterey, California from Thursday, August 18 through Sunday, August 21.
