Porsche Tequipment celebrates 20 years of driving fun
Porsche drivers rarely buy off the rack. Almost every model leaves its production site as a one-off – or is subsequently converted into one. This is in fact why Porsche Tequipment exists.
For more than 20 years, the sports car producer has been supplying a multifaceted range of accessories for retrospective customisation under the name Porsche Tequipment. One function of the range is to expand the product benefits by, for example, providing made-to-measure model-specific transport systems or the series of child car seats. Another is to increase the pleasure of ownership and driving fun: from sport exhaust systems and optical customisation options, such as black headlights, to complete wheel sets in an individual design.
The idea of further refining Porsche sports cars even after delivery and enhancing their everyday utility through appropriate accessories came about in 1972, in the Porsche Parts Service. At this time, the range was mainly restricted to wheel hub covers and floor mats. However, expansion of the product range quickly gathered pace because the ideas for additional accessories were numerous, and the Parts Services specialists began to develop prototypes of their product proposals independently.
