992 Carrera S sports tweaks from Porsche’s Exclusive Manufaktur programme
Just a month after unveiling the all-new 911, the Stuttgart marque has teased its introduction of Exclusive Manufaktur options on the 992 model. The programme allows customers to choose options not ordinarily available on the standard car, making for some rather interesting creations over the years. Want bright red wheels to match your paint and interior colour? Sorted. Fancy a green tachometer combined with yellow carbonfibre inserts? Porsche has got you covered.
Although the brand is yet to reveal further details on the programme for the new 911, a post on social media teased a few options that will be available. A lightweight carbonfibre roof, darkened LED headlights and Porsche crests in the seat headrests were all shown. An Instagram user also posted a photo showing a 992 Carrera S complete with gold wheels and sporting a rather significant fixed rear wing. We’re not sure we’d choose such options, but it certainly demonstrates the flexibility the programme gives customers.
Exclusive Manufaktur was also recently announced for the new Porsche Macan, allowing customers to add a new valve-equipped sports exhaust system, a more aggressive diffuser, the ability to paint various body panels in unique colours and have wheels painted to match the exterior colour of the car. Modifications continue on the inside, too, with ‘Anthracite Chestnut’ wood inserts, an extended leather package and a beige-coloured instrument panel and Sport Chrono stopwatch fitted to one particular car.
The programme started around 1950 when a 356 was covered in faux fur, of course. Since then, the programme has allowed customers to realise a variety of interesting creations, from simply painting a 911 in the colour of their front door, to creating entirely new, custom components to stand out from the crowd.
Full details, availability and pricing are yet to be announced for the Exclusive Manufaktur programme on the 992 911, however following this teaser from the marque, expect to see more in the coming weeks.
