Pforzheim is not only the stronghold of the jewellery and watch-making industry. The City of Gold is also the home of the first Gold Porsche. All that glitters in Pforzheim is gold. Thus, nobody is really surprised that fascinating projects and extraordinary ideas in gold originate from this region.
The Gold Porsche, which will be followed by a limited edition, was realized by the creative smithy, Bernd Hoeger a goldsmith and artist from Stuttgart, of VISUALIS last year. The VISUALIS CEOs commissioned the artist to gild a Porsche Boxster in 22 carat beaten gold. Piece by piece, the manual work which took about a month, created a real one-of-a-kind as never seen before.
From the control elements such as the steering wheel and door knobs to the car body and alloy rims - the two seater is of an inestimable value. This car stands for pure lifestyle-enjoyment and is characterized by its even and fancy curves.
The extravagant sportscar is a highlight wherever it shows up, this year the car will be on show at a few special events like the fashion show with Strenesse and Glashütte. It not only attracts attention, but also makes the hearts of men and women beat faster. Such a precious piece of sportiness stimulates notions of envy. The status symbol is an eye-catcher and as the first of its kind, the prelude to a limited edition.
Nine further Porsche Models will undergo the same, unique refinement process to continue the creative project. They are not only a dream in gold; they will also represent the glamour and aesthetics of lifestyle with an overwhelming worthiness.
Curious people are already anxious to know who are going to be the owners of these magnificent automobiles. Interested buyers can pick their favorite Porsche to gild, or even have aftermarket accessories gilded to suit the car.
“The Porsche warranty is not affected” says Petra Köhler of VISUALIS. “since only the body will be changed. Of course if there are any changes under the hood, you always have to get an extra warranty, but that's up to the buyers. VISUALIS offers just the refinement.”
"It's a must for every fan." was the final comment from VISUALIS CEO Sven Ulrich.
