Created as part of the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’s Sonderwunsch program, the ‘Taycan 4S Cross Turismo for JENNIE’ has been built based on the global superstars’ inspirations, her dreams, ideas and lifestyle.
Discreet highlights in “Paint to Sample” Meissenblue in the exterior and the interior, as well as a “Jennie Ruby Jane” logo that she created herself, are among the car’s personal features. Painted in a metallic black, the new Sonderwunsch model will be presented at ‘the Sonderwunsch Haus with the start of BLACKPINK’s world tour in Seoul.
■ Meissenblue accents in the exterior and the interior
In the interior, the combination of Black, Crayon and Meissenblue creates an elegant ambience. Only the seats and the top part of the dashboard are in Crayon. Meissenblue accents the door panel trim, the borders of the air vents, the cup holders and the top centre marking of the steering wheel rim. The headrests are adorned with the clouds designed by Jennie. A special indoor car cover was also created with this personal touch. Another special feature also illustrates the attention to detail in this project, namely the black dog box on board for JENNIE’s Pomeranian “Kuma” (Japanese for “bear”). Like the rest of the car, the box is accented in Meissenblue, including the dog’s name on the front. The cloud appears on the inside of the transport box.
“Jennie had very specific images of her dream Porsche. The collaboration was accordingly in-tense and inspiring,” says Alexander Fabig, Head of Individualisation and Classic at Porsche. “Working together with international customers on these special projects is particularly exciting and enriching. In this case we were also faced with interesting challenges that motivated us as a team to be able to make even the most creative wishes come true.”
In a digital workshop that ran for several hours, the experts on the Sonderwunsch team at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur and the Style Porsche design department worked together with the artist to define all the details of her Taycan 4S Cross Turismo. The car was customised in the Sonderwunsch department of the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur workshop in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. “As an artist, Jennie is used to creative collaborations. She even brought a mood board to our meeting that visualised the initial ideas and reflected their reception,” Grant Larson recalls. Larson has been with Style Porsche since 1989, and as project manager for special projects is responsible for Sonderwunsch work within the design area.
