Porsche Turbos Getting New Turbonite Trim Package

Matte finish for speediest Porsches

  • Porsche Turbos lose their luster

  • New Turbonite trim will adorn the fastest Porsches

Porsche has had a number of ways to set apart its turbo models over the years. Other than with their massive performance, that is. Now it’s time for a new way, a special version of the Porsche crest that will be used only on Turbo cars, starting with the next-generation Panamera.

The colour is called Turbonite. It’s a metallic grey tone that replaces the traditional gold Porsche crest and will be used on that badge as well as a few other trim pieces of the next-gen Turbo cars.

Porsche will paint the wheels in Turbonite, for example, as well as the steering wheel, trim strips around the glass, and seat belt straps. Even smaller details like the seat contrast stitch and the mode dial. Porsche is going all-in on this tiny detail.

“In 1974, we presented the first turbocharged 911. Since then, the Turbo has become a synonym for our high-performance top models and is now more or less a brand of its own. We now want to make the Turbo even more visible, and differentiate it more markedly from other derivatives such as the GTS,” explains Michael Mauer, Vice President of Style Porsche. “This is why we’ve developed a distinctive Turbo aesthetic. From now on, the Turbo versions will exhibit a consistent appearance across all model series – one that is elegant, high-quality and very special.”

Aside from this preview, we’ll see the Turbo Turbonite for the first time on the next-generation Porsche Panamera. The latest iteration of that sedan will make its debut on November 24th.
