Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is once again offering an attractive range of calendars for the coming year, including three large-format wall calendars and a date planner.
The official 2008 Porsche calendar invites you to take a journey back through time to mark the 60th anniversary of the Porsche brand. Current Porsche models take center stage, accompanied by twelve classic vehicles. They are set in locations, each of which is connected with a well-known event from the classic vehicles’ year of manufacture. For example, February features the current Boxster together with the classic 550 A Spyder, in front of the Stuttgart television tower, which opened in 1956. That same year, the Porsche 550 A Spyder was voted “vehicle of the year”. The calendar is 59 x 55.5 centimeters and is traditionally sold with a collector’s coin. It costs 34.51 Euro*.
In 2008, the historical calendar presents the legendary 917-type racing cars at their various development stages from 1969 to 1972. In 1970, a 917 secured the first overall victory for Porsche in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and thus made motor-sport history. A spiral binding divides the 30 x 42 centimeter large historical calendar (60 x 42 centimeters when opened out) vertically down the middle. When placed in the slip case provided, the calendar becomes an illustrated collectors’ book that will long outlast the year 2008. Again, it costs 34.51 Euro*.
The style calendar was created by the designers in the Porsche Development Center in Weissach. This year, 13 themes use current and classic vehicles to show the typical Porsche design line. This 70 x 50 centimeter calendar comes with a CD-Rom with a striking screen saver. This calendar costs 55.93 Euro*.
The lavishly produced Porsche Design Driver’s Selection date planner contains illustrations of the current Porsche RS Spyder racing car competing in the American Le Mans series. In addition, the date planner provides background information on the racing car’s development and technology. This A5 spiral-bound planner costs 34.51 Euro*.
The three calendars and the date planner can be ordered over the Internet at www.porsche.com and will also be available from Porsche centers. Some of these products may be available only in certain countries.
