Rinspeed AG’s Porsche refining division became officially a part of Mansory Coorporation GmbH as of November 1, 2008. According to Rinspeed CEO and founder Frank M. Rinderknecht, the sale of its tune-up division means that the company can now focus on its core competencies which are to develop project vehicles and offer services to the end consumer and the automotive industry as a whole.
The new company will be called Mansory (Switzerland) AG and will operate at Rinspeed’s headquarters in Zumikon, Switzerland, just near Zürich lake. The company will be concentrating on developing and marketing customization programs for different Porsche models around the world. Mansory (Switzerland) will also be the one responsible for distributing the parent company’s customization programs in Switzerland.
These includes programs for a variety of product lines like the Rolls Royce, McLaren SLR, Ferrari, Bentley, and Aston Martin, all of which Mansory had already done work on.

Even with the sale, Rinspeed Inc. will continue to be part of the automotive industry. For more than 32 years, the company had made a name for itself with excellent concept cars. Its core business remains to be offering private customers and the automotive industry services and customizing concepts as well as automotive vision and emotions.
The company also offers alternative, sustainable and innovative drive and fuel systems. An example of this is the "sQuba", which is by far the first-ever, and maybe only, submersible car. It had managed to attract the attention of around 1.7 million people after it appeared in a James Bond movie. To know more, visit www.rinspeed.com.
