Porsche is celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring track with a special edition of one of its models. We are writing about the Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition, which is the first special edition based on the brand’s first electric vehicle. It features several elements to set it apart.

It all starts with the Stone Grey paint, which comes from the company’s custom color program, and has “Bronzite” accents to bring a dash of flair. On the inside, the specialists at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur have selected black leather for the upholstery, while the contrasting elements are finished in a shade that is called “Island Green.”

The cockpit features Paldao open-pore wood elements, which can be seen on the air vents, cup holders, and selector level. The driver will have a GT multifunction sports steering wheel in their hands, and the wheel has decorative stitching in Island Green, including at the 12 o’clock mark.

The special edition would not be complete without the addition of multiple anniversary logos that write “90 Jahre Hockenheimring” (90 years of Hockenheimring). The logo can be seen on the lid of the storage compartment in the center console, as well as in the form of a display made by the door projectors, just to mention two ways of seeing it. The vehicle key also gets the logo in the form of a laser engraving. The work is handled by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, of course.

Porsche has selected this track to mark the first special edition of the Taycan because the circuit has an anniversary motto of “mobile evolution,” and the company wanted to bring traditional elegance to go along with it.

The track was first opened on May 29, 1932, and the first event held there was a motorcycle race. Six years later, the configuration was changed to turn it into a high-speed circuit. The first Formula 1 race held at the Hockenheim ring took place on August 2, 1970.

Selected European markets, including Germany, will be able to place an order for the special edition of the Taycan GTS. Porsche has not specified if this special edition will come with a production cap, and its price was not revealed at the time of unveiling.

Press Release

Porsche presents the exclusive Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition

20/05/2022

To mark the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring, Porsche presents the first special edition based on its electric sports car: the Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition.

To mark the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring, Porsche presents the first special edition based on its electric sports car: the Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition. Many unique details, such as paintwork in Stone Grey from the custom colour programme combined with Bronzite accents set this special edition apart. The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has customised the interior in black leather with decorative stitching and many other elements in Island Green. In several places, the ‘90 Jahre Hockenheimring’ anniversary logo points to the exclusive character of this Taycan GTS with up to 440 kW (598 PS; Taycan GTS: CO₂ emissions* combined (WLTP) 0 g/km, Electric power consumption* combined (WLTP) 23.3 – 20.3 kWh/100 km, Electric range* combined (WLTP) 439 – 504 km, Electric range* in town (WLTP) 539 – 624 km, CO₂ emissions* combined (NEDC) 0 g/km, Electric power consumption* combined (NEDC) 25.9 kWh/100 km). The core idea behind the design of the special edition was to unite the Hockenheimring’s anniversary motto of ‘mobile evolution’ with ‘traditional elegance’. The special edition will be available in Germany and other selected European markets.

Exclusive access also comes as part of the car’s equipment package: with the vehicle key, customers can identify themselves as owners of the special edition. This entitles them to drive straight to the Porsche Experience Centre (PEC) Hockenheimring, which is located at the heart of the racetrack. It also comes with two years of free charging during the opening hours of the PEC Hockenheimring. Customers also enjoy preferential parking at PEC ‘Frühschicht’ events, the monthly vehicle gatherings of Porsche enthusiasts.

“With this exclusive special edition, we are not only delighting fans of our all-electric sports car, but also highlighting our attachment to the Hockenheimring,” says Alexander Pollich, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Deutschland GmbH. “We congratulate the legendary racetrack on a rich, 90-year history. With the Porsche Experience Centre there, the Hockenheimring has become even more of a home for our brand since 2019.” During the anniversary year, a Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition will be on display as a show car at the Hockenheimring.

Special colour scheme and high-quality anniversary logo

“Fine materials, an elegant colour combination and unusual details that we have not yet shown in the Taycan in this way – these are what make this special edition unique,” says Alexander Fabig, Vice President Individualisation & Classic at Porsche. The Stone Grey paintwork comes from the custom colour programme and is reserved for the special edition in the current model year of the Taycan. This timeless, striking Porsche exterior colour underscores the emotive character of the electric sports car. Bronzite was developed as a contrasting colour to round out the scheme. It reinterprets classic metallic tones and provides elegant exterior and interior accents.

Another eye-catcher is the 21-inch Mission E Design wheel. The wheel centre is painted in Bronzite (satin finish), while the surrounding rim edge is finished in the exterior colour, Stone Grey (high gloss). Satin finish and high-gloss paints were applied together on each rim, a combination that makes the vehicle even more exclusive. In keeping with the wheel centre, the hub cap is painted in Bronzite (satin finish) and features a coloured Porsche crest. The brake callipers are painted black (high-gloss).

Other Bronzite accents include the SportDesign side sill trim, the rear diffuser inlay in a louvred design and the ‘Taycan GTS’ model designation on the tailgate. A plaque with a raised printed anniversary logo adorns the B-pillar, indicating the occasion for the special edition. The ‘Hockenheimring Edition’ lettering next to it is finished in Stone Grey.

Island Green decorative stitching and Paldao wood

The exterior design concept is continued in the interior. The decorative stitching in Island Green offers a contrast to the black leather interior. This colour scheme is a first in the Taycan model series.

Decorative trim in Paldao open-pore wood is another highlight. The selector lever, cup holders and air vents above the centre console, as well as the side air vents on the driver and front passenger side, are painted in Bronzite. The GT multifunction sports steering wheel has been upgraded with a Bronzite trim as well as decorative stitching and a 12 o’clock marking in Island Green. The floor mats are finished with a leather inlay and decorative Island Green stitching.

The Hockenheimring anniversary logo

Another special feature is the embossed Hockenheimring anniversary logo on the lid of the storage compartment in the centre console. The brushed aluminium door sill guards in Black feature the illuminated ‘Taycan GTS’ model designation. The door projectors display the anniversary logo on the floor. The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’s attention to detail is also evident in the vehicle key, which is painted in the exterior colour of the car and features a high-quality laser engraving of the anniversary logo.
