Many hours of hand-crafting have gone into each of the 500 limited edition models of Porsche 911.

The high-tech material carbon fibre was selected for this purpose and is treated extensively by hand until a perfect surface quality with a feeling of great depth is achieved. For example, on the contoured roof, the bonnet, the housing of the sports design exterior mirrors, and the extendible rear wing. To accentuate the carbon look with its fine woven structure, the roof and bonnet are masked off in the exterior colour before painting, allowing the carbon structure to shimmer through in the characteristic two-stripe design.

The paint finish is applied by hand and boasts a high level of precision. The painting process is also alternated with intermediate sanding operations for a gleaming surface effect. The interior features leather, Alcantara and carbon fibre. The decorative trims on the dashboard, the door panels and the centre console panel are also made of this lightweight material. In a car manufacturing first, gold-coloured metallic thread is woven into all carbon elements – a feature previously considered unfeasible.

The high degree of individualisation can be seen in the matching vehicle document holder made of genuine leather embossed with golden yellow stitching, as well as the corresponding key fob complete with key finished in the exterior colour of the vehicle. The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series represents the first time that Porsche Design has released a chronograph for Porsche customers that can be customised to have the same visual design features as the vehicle.

With 580 hp (combined fuel consumption 9.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 212 g/km), the Porsche 911 Turbo S is not short on power. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series goes one better: Higher boost pressure and specific engine control increase the performance of the engine. The 3.8-litre, six-cylinder biturbo flat engine of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series provides 446 kW (607 hp; combined fuel consumption 9.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 212 g/km), and therefore 19 kW (27 hp) more than the 911 Turbo S.
