Travel in style in the Porsche 918 SpyderA new luggage series for a super sports car, created by the Porsche Design Studio

Stuttgart. The new Porsche 918 Spyder luggage set presented by Porsche Tequipment is the first suitcase and bag series specially designed for trips away in this high-performance Sports Car. Designed by the Porsche Design Studio and developed by Porsche in Weissach, the luggage collection is an ideal match for the interior of the super sports car. The material concept of these luxurious accessories is based on those used in the passenger compartment of the 918 Spyder*, and the set is also designed to make optimum use of the space available in the vehicle. The series is available in three versions: as a five-piece luggage set, a three-piece travel set or a two-piece stowage set. The entire set comprises two storage boxes, two garment covers and a trolley.

The trolley was specially designed to fit the luggage compartment of the 918 Spyder and has a capacity of 30 litres. Its unusual form means that it leaves more than enough space in the luggage compartment to stow the removable roof halves of the 918 Spyder as well. The trolley can be expanded to hold an additional 10 litres if necessary.

A carbon case for the centre console is also included in the collection. The box opens on the passenger's side and fits into the elevated centre console, providing stowage space of around 4 litres.

An additional small storage box utilises the space in the glove box for secure stowage. The fact that it is opened and closed using the flap of the glove compartment means that it is ideally integrated into the vehicle.

The luggage set is rounded off by two garment covers which can be securely attached to the carbon-fibre monocoque behind the seats thanks to a specially designed hanging system. The magnetic clasps on the inside of the garment protectors make it easier to fold them together. The protective covers are also shaped to fit the available space, unlike conventional garment covers.

The 918 Spyder luggage series is "Handmade in Germany“. The pieces of luggage are made from a unique high-quality combination of exposed carbon and authentic natural leather. The insides of the boxes, the garment covers and the suitcase are lined with Alcantara. The set thus references the popular motor sports materials which are also used in the interior of the 918 Spyder. The luggage set is available in the same versions as the vehicle interior: Garnet Red-Silver, Onyx Black-Acid Green, Onyx Black-Silver, Mocca Brown-Silver and Mocca Brown-Orange.
