Turbo for Talents: comprehensive education with extra power

‘Turbo’ stands for extra power in youth sports, too. The Porsche youth development programme, Turbo for Talents, is currently working with eight partner clubs: RB Leipzig, Stuttgarter Kickers, RB Fußball Akademie, Borussia Mönchengladbach, VfB Stuttgart, FC Erzgebirge Aue, Bietigheim Steelers and the Ludwigsburg Porsche Basketball Academy (PBA). In addition to the best possible athletic training, up-and-coming football, basketball and ice hockey talents receive full support off the field of play. Cultural and social differences are transcended by sport and the young people involved develop self-confidence and perseverance. The programme teaches values such as team spirit, fairness, respect and passion. Turbo for Talents also pursues the objective of further developing the environmental and social dimension of education. The curriculum therefore encompasses inclusion, sustainable nutrition, health and responsible use of resources. With its Turbo Award, Porsche annually honours the best sporting development and academic performance.

Turbee: the power of nature

Since 2017, 50 bee colonies have been working at the natural off-road grounds in Leipzig with turbo-like efficiency. From the pollen of acacia, lime and blackberries, around three million bees produce up to 1.5 tonnes of spring blossom honey, which gourmets can purchase under the name Turbienchen. Since the summer of 2020, Turbienchen honey has also been produced in a factory-owned orchard near Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, and is available in the Porsche Museum shop and other outlets.
