Famous people around the world drive, collect, and love Porsches. Some like to appear in the media with their cars, others prefer to be alone with their engines. But they all have one thing in common: their cars are as unique as their fingerprints. A Porsche department fulfills the exclusive wishes of VIP customers.

Discretion is his middle name. Regardless of how cleverly the question is phrased, Wolfgang von Dühren provides not a single detail that could reveal too much about his famous customers. The head of the international direct sales department and his seven-member team sell around fifty cars a year to showbiz personalities, monarchs, and sheikhs. Each of these Porsches is designed to meet the individual wishes of its future owner. “Our customers don’t buy a car, they buy their car,” says von Dühren in summing up his department’s philosophy. In color, decoration, engraving, and more, the team fulfills a very wide range of unique desires. But there are a few limits to individualization. It’s taboo to use leather from endangered species in car interiors, for example.
