Porsche is all about automotive performance and perfection with their products being both sought-after and aspired to the world over. Many regard a Porsche, specifically a 911 variant, as one of the best motoring experiences money can buy. While the automaker produces a whole host of models in various trim levels, in the world of the Porsche 911, sales are strong with 38,464 delivered to customers in 2021. While not every single one of those was built in the same year, it's clear that the Zuffenhausen factory where the Porsche 911 is assembled is a very busy place.
If you're like any of the SXdrv crew, you'll also be quite curious as to this manufacturing process, and luckily for all of us, Porsche has decided to let the public at large see just what goes into producing the current Porsche 911 GT3. To make it that much cooler, the car is covered in the most amazing shade of Gold Bronze Metallic paint, a special colour from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. Over at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, clients can tailor their Porsche 911 order to suit their specific wants and needs with more options than you'd usually spec at normal dealership level. Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur is where all the coolest paint colours and add-ons live, it's the place responsible for those super hot Porsche models that break the internet.
Once a prospective buyer has chosen all the fancy options for their 911 GT3 build, the process starts at the high-tech Zuffenhausen assembly plant. This is where the magic happens for the 911 GT3, over the course of two full days where a bare shell starts at one end and a fully-functioning 375kW (502hp) normally-aspirated 4.0 supercar emerges at the other end, ready to carve up roads and racetracks. No less than 1500 workers touch the car during this process, along with many, many robots.
Paint to Sample will consider new shades of paint too if a customer wants to be uber exclusive, they can colour match almost any request as long as it passes a rfeasibility test. Right now, Paint to Sample Plus is currently only available on vehicles produced in Zuffenhausen, the 911, 718 and Taycan, but it’s not for clients in a hurry to show off, colour development can take up to five months.
Owning a Porsche GT3 is special in its own right, owning one that’s been fiddled with by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur puts owners on a whole new level. It’s pretty amazing to see what goes on behind the scenes when these special cars are produced.
