Truly Customizing Your Porsche 911 With Your Fingerprint

Through Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, you will soon be able reproduce your fingerprint on your 911.

  • Through a unique printing process, your fingerprint can be reproduced on your 911.
  • Soon, any customer-specific designs will be possible to request.
  • This unique approach to uniquely customizing your Porsche costs 7,500 euros.

And this is just for starters. Now, admittedly, this bit of news is interesting not for the fact that you can request a large reproduction of your fingerprint on your new Porsche 911, but for the new software and hardware technologies and the associated painting and manufacturing processes that were developed to make this happen.

This is not simply a scan of your fingerprint which is printed on a piece of vinyl only to then be applied to the 911! The direct printing process, much like that of an inkjet printer, sees the paint applied directly and automatically to three-dimensional components such as a bonnet or, eventually, a door. After the robot painter applies the paint, the pattern is clear-coated, the component polished and finally reassembled.

Christian Will, Vice President Production Development at Porsche AG, explains: “The ability to control the nozzles individually permits targeted application of every paint droplet. The complexity is due to the necessity of harmonizing three technologies: robot technology (control, sensors, programming), application technology (print head, graphic handling) and paint technology (application process, paint).”

The best part about this entire process is what is yet to come. In the near future, customer-specific designs will also be possible. A family logo? A symbol near and dear to your heart? For a price, Porsche will do it through Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.
