Following the Design Calendar in 2007, for its 2008 range of products, Porsche has included a large format calendar dedicated to design.

The style calendar was created by the designers in the Porsche Development Center in Weissach. This year, 13 themes use current and classic vehicles to show the typical Porsche design line. The 70 x 50 centimeter calendar comes with a CD-Rom which includes a screen saverand costs 55.93 Euro.

Among the other products are the Porsche Calendar, the historical calendar and a date planner, all of which have a retail price of 34.51 Euro.

The official 2008 Porsche calendar that celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Porsche brand by presenting the current Porsche models accompanied by twelve classic vehicles.

They are set in locations, each of which is connected with a well-known event from the classic vehicles’ year of manufacture.

For example, February features the current Boxster together with the classic 550 A Spyder, in front of the Stuttgart television tower, which opened in 1956. That same year, the Porsche 550 A Spyder was voted “vehicle of the year”. The calendar is 59 x 55.5 centimeters and is traditionally sold with a collector’s coin.

In 2008, the 30 x 42 centimeter historical calendar presents the legendary 917-type racing cars at their various development stages from 1969 to 1972. In 1970, a 917 secured the first overall victory for Porsche in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and thus made motor-sport history.

The Porsche Design Driver’s Selection A5 spiral-bound date planner contains illustrations of the current Porsche RS Spyder racing car competing in the American Le Mans series. In addition, the date planner provides background information on the racing car’s development and technology.

The three calendars and the date planner can be ordered over the Internet at www.porsche.com and will also be available from Porsche centers.
