KUWAIT CITY, Nov 7: Porsche Centre Kuwait is leading the celebrations with a special showroom display, as the brand’s commitment to unrivalled exclusivity reaches a new milestone with 20 years of Porsche Tequipment. Embodying the dedication to ensuring that no two Porsche cars are ever the same, Tequipment is the wide range of accessories for customising cars which have already been built or bought as pre-owned.

To mark the 20th anniversary, Porsche Centre Kuwait will welcome visitors to witness a special Macan S display with 50-50 Tequipment set-up, where only half the car is fitted with Porsche accessories, whilst the other half showcases the standard fitting, allowing guests to clearly see the difference.

To celebrate the brand’s milestone, the local Porsche representative offers a 20 percent discount on all Tequipment accessories from today till the 31st of December of this year. From sport exhaust systems and optical customisation options, such as black headlights, to complete wheel sets in an individual design, Porsche Tequipment is focused on increasing the pleasure of ownership and driving fun.

The idea of further refining Porsche sports cars even after delivery and enhancing their everyday usability through accessorisation came about in 1972, in the Porsche Parts Service. At this time, the range was mainly restricted to wheel hub covers and floor mats. However, expansion of the product range quickly gathered pace when the Parts Services specialists began to develop prototypes of product proposals. This led to innovations, such as the first wind deflector for Porsche convertibles which, in collaboration with a supplier, was then offered for 944 and 968 models a short while later. The wind deflector retrofit option soon became part of the regular factory-installed equipment range of subsequent convertible generations.

The steadily increasing demand for Porsche original accessories resulted in the Parts Service Division being transferred to the sales organisation in the mid-1990s.

In 1995 a new contemporary name was coined for the business unit: Porsche Tequipment — short for “Technical Equipment”. The target at the time was the same as it is now: three months after the launch of a new model at the latest, a suitable range of Porsche Tequipment products must be made available to customers.

In addition to the range of practical transport solutions for skis and bicycles, demand also covers retrospective visual customisation of a car’s exterior. Aerodynamic components such as rear spoilers have to undergo an extensive programme of testing in the Weissach Development Centre. In the wind tunnel and on the test track, they have to prove that they not only look dynamic but also enhance driving stability. Wheel sets are also one of the core products of Porsche Tequipment and are among the bestsellers in the accessories range.

Over the course of the years, the entire range has grown continuously from just under 150 products at the beginning to more than 400 items today. It also encompasses motorsports accessories, such as the Porsche lap trigger, which — in combination with the Track Precision app for the Porsche GT sports cars — enables precise recording of lap times.

Visitors are welcome to view the special Macan S display at Porsche Centre Kuwait and benefit from a 20 per cent reduction on the price of Tequipment accessories valid until the end of December this year.
