Special car care kit by Porsche Classic now available

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 22, 2015

Porsche Classic, a division of sports car manufacturer Porsche, is offering a car care kit comprised of over a dozen products and items developed specially for the upkeep of paints, soft-top fabrics and materials used in classic Porsche vehicles.

For just EUR470 (Germany) inclusive of value added tax, the car care kit includes shampoo and cleaning clay for dirt, polish and hard wax as well as synthetic materials cleaner and acid-free wheel rim cleaner.

These cleaning products -- complemented by their own sponges, cloths and brushes – have been tested in the Porsche development center in Weissach to make sure that they are truly compatible with the materials used on classic Porsche sports cars.

Tests even went beyond the lab as the care products went under practical application. All products included in the car care kit are of high quality. For instance, the polish features abrasives with no synthetic materials and have uniform and consistent structure – which means a classic sports car could shine as new without any tiny scratches.

Around 40 percent of the hard ward is carnauba, which is considered as the hardest natural wax, thereby providing any Porsche classic with long-term protection. To make this hard wax easy to apply and have a high gloss, it is formulated with special nano-polymers.

On the other hand, the synthetic materials cleaner contains a special combination of protective oils and light stabilizing additives, which inhibit diffusion of emollients allowing the rubber and plastics to maintain their suppleness.

Customers could reorder each of the products individually. Porsche Classic was established to provide products and services for all Porsche vehicles which production had ended over ten years ago.

Its products and services practically involve all aspects of Porsche vehicle care and technical literature – including supply and reproduction of original parts as well as complete restoration of a dilapidated classic Porsche.

Since classic Porsche vehicles are spread all over the world, Porsche Classic is expanding its international dealer and service network to around 100 partners. Each of these partners offer a complete range of Porsche Classic products and services all tailored to be compatible to classic Porsche sports cars.

Through these partners, Porsche Classic could ensure the long-term care and value of classic and vintage cars. Porsche Classic’s car care kit is available in a configured leather bag that features the classic Pepita pattern.
