Suitability for everyday use and performance: Porsche has always combined these opposites in its products. The newly developed performance roof box from Porsche Tequipment also meets this requirement. In addition to the new design, the maximum permissible speed was in the foreground of the development: the performance roof box for the new Taycan Cross Turismo has been extensively tried and tested - for speeds of up to 200 km / h. Trials and tests for other models will follow gradually. The innovative luggage system will be available from the Porsche Centers from May 2021.

The special design was created together with the FA Porsche studio. With a slight counter-swing and a tear-off edge, the design follows the "form follows function" principle. A three-dimensional silver Porsche lettering adorns the back. As with vehicles, the designers worked on a 1: 1 clay model at an early stage. Despite advancing digitization, physical prototypes help designers to assess whether their designs also achieve the desired effect in three dimensions. They are also suitable for first attempts in the wind tunnel in order to be able to perfect the design aerodynamically. “In addition to the speed, the ability to customize the roof box will also be unique,” ​​explains Alexander Fabig, Head of Customization and Classic at Porsche AG. "Like the box, the side blades are available in high-gloss black and three other popular colors from our model range: in dolomite silver metallic, carrara white metallic and volcanic gray metallic." If desired, the side blades can also be primed and painted in the individual vehicle color.

The new roof box bears the nickname "Performance" due to the tried and tested maximum speeds of up to 200 km / h. Porsche is thus responding to the wish of many customers to be able to use the additional luggage space even at higher speeds. This test procedure was accompanied by extensive tests with regard to aerodynamics and driving behavior. “The test program for the roof box was demanding,” explains Jochen Schmid, Head of Tequipment at Porsche. “On the way to series production, it was several thousand kilometers on test grounds as part of the overall vehicle testing.” During the driving dynamics tests, the focus was on the controllability of the vehicle with the roof box mounted at high speeds. In addition, so-called durability tests were carried out at the Porsche development center in Weissach: Among other things, the roof box had to prove its ability to take on the rough road. Aerodynamics and noise development were also tested in the wind tunnel in Weissach.

special customizability and brand-typical performance

In addition to a unique design, special customization and performance typical of the brand, the focus of the new roof box was on simple handling and a high level of everyday practicality. The assembly is carried out comfortably via a quick-release system on all basic carrier roof transport systems. The roof box has a capacity of 480 liters and can be opened from both sides, which enables easy and even loading.
