New items feature parts from 911 Carrera and 911 GT3 Cup Race cars
Atlanta. Porsche Driver's Selection, the automaker's line of lifestyle apparel and accessories, introduced unique home and office items last week at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt.
The new collection includes items crafted exclusively from original Porsche parts, including an office chair made from a 911 Carrera sport seat and a wall shelf constructed from the rear spoiler of a 911 GT3 Cup Race car.
Built to the same specifications and upholstered with the same premium black leather as the sport seat found in various 911 models, the office chair provides familiar comfort long after the drive to work. It also features an electronic backrest adjustment and an embossed Porsche emblem in the headrest.
The shelving unit, made out of carbon-fiber material, is repurposed from an original Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car rear spoiler and can support up to 264 pounds.
Also featured in the updated Porsche Driver's Selection collection is a 1:8 scale resin model of the Porsche 918 Spyder which will be produced in a limited quantity of 918 pieces. These and other products from the Porsche Driver's Selection line are available at authorized Porsche Dealerships across the United States and online at shop.porsche.com.
