Give Your Porsche An Upstairs Room
Those with convertible and GT kinds, look away!
Not that you’d want to take your beloved Porsche into the woods. But what if one day you decided otherwise? What if you wanted to take your priced possession to a place where there’s nothing else but untapped terrains? Perhaps, by a secluded lake surrounded by lush green trees with gentle chirps of birds. Quite a picture I painted there, don’t you think? Fine! Porsche helped, while introducing an accessory that will interest those outdoorsy people.
It is a tent, from Porsche’s Tequipment division. As per the brand, “this practical adventure equipment transforms the sports car into a hotel room for nature-lovers.” Residing inside a hard casing, which was developed at the Weissach Development Centre and co-designed by Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See, the tent can be quite an addition to your adventure trips. Once extended, the tent reveals an integrated high-density polyfoam mattress, while the walls are made of a breathable cotton blend. Water-resistant zips and a separate rain cover for entry help in wet weather conditions.
Obviously, there’s prominent Porsche branding, while the interior boasts insulating quilted lining in Light Grey. Additionally, both side windows can be fully opened for better ventilation, while an insect guard offers protection from the flying menaces. Finally, there’s the option of blacking out all the light.
Those interested can choose between the Black/Light Grey and Black/Light Grey hard casing, both sporting a matt black Porsche logo. And, the hard casing can go on the 911, Macan, Cayenne, Panamera and Taycan – both with and without roof rails. Predictably, the convertible models won’t support this accessory, and neither will the GT versions. While the tent is installed, the top speed is limited to 130kmph.
Porsche will soon introduce more compatible accessories to go with the tent, including an inner tent, a heated blanket and a shoe and bag organiser. Price? For the German market, this two-person tent costs 4,980 euros including VAT. Deliveries are to commence in November 2022.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in Lifestyle, Travel
