Customizing a Porsche
That's Porsche's philosophy, and for 25 years, the company has been giving its customers the keys to a heavy level of customization: Porsche Exclusive. The idea is that while there are many standard choices buyers can make about their new vehicle, those with more unique tastes shouldn't be reined in. So even if people want a color combination for their leather trim that might leave a lot of people shaking their head, Porsche is willing to make it happen--for a price. And just about anything else a buyer wants, so long as it's safe.
Here, in the Porsche Exclusive workshop in Stuttgart, a highly trained employee labors to help a customer get just what he or she wants out of his or her new car. As part of Road Trip 2011, CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman got a close-up look at what's possible.
