Porsche, in June 2023, introduced a new logo as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations. While the latest version of the brand's iconic crest badge received a few design revisions and colour changes, it was designed to be 'immediately recognisable'. Now, in what will be the next step by Porche, the German brand's Turbo models will be featuring an exclusive badge, dominated by a new Turbonite colour tone rather than a traditional golden hue. 

Designed by the Porsche Colour & Trim experts, the special crest combines black with an 'elegant metallic grey tone', particularly for the Turbo. Not limited to this, the Turbonite treatment is also extended to certain exterior and interior components, with the future Turbo lineup receiving the Turbonite treatment on the rear lettering, Daylight Opening (DLO), and borders of the side windows.

Besides, the inlays in the front aprons as well as the aero blades and spokes of the light alloy wheels will be given a Turbonite finish, all depending on the model you pick. The 'modernised' crest on the front of the high-performance models and alloy wheels will round things off.

Changes continue inside as well, with the trim strips, belt straps, and a number of controls, such as the mode switch and air conditioning control panel, also exhibiting a similar appearance. In this case too, according to Porsche, the exact scope depends on the model series. The car's steering wheel will be adorned with the same Turbonite badge as the alloy wheels.

Moreover, those who choose to buy the Turbo model with a black interior will get a contrasting Turbonite tone for the yarn on the seats, door panel trims, instrument panel, and floor mats.

New Porsche Panamera: First Car to Get a Special Badge

The new-generation Porsche Panamera will be the first model from the company's turbo lineup to wear this 'more marked differentiation'. Slated to make its debut at the Icons of Porsche Festival in Dubai on November 24, the E-Hybrid vehicle will be equipped with the twin-turbocharged, 48V mild-hybrid engines that are currently available in 2.9-litre and 4.0-litre displacements. Additionally, the new Panamera is also expected to get a revised plug-in hybrid powertrain lineup that will be shared with the fourth-generation Cayenne SUV.
