To shape the future of the Porsche cockpit, our designers’ cross boundaries and take the best from the brand essence and boldly add something new. To do so, they study people and their habits in general but Porsche drivers in particular. So, what can Porsche drivers expect from the interior of the future? Convenience, flexibility, and timeliness – condensed into a brand experience.
Enter the Renndienst.
The Renndienst is a concept car that served as a design study for an elevated interior that is ultramodern but still intuitive. The vehicle itself resembles a motorsport service van that once served the factory racing team. From the outside, it’s futuristic and edgeless – inside, it’s a modular travel cabin. feels like a protective capsule
The side windows are designed asymmetrically, with one side closed for privacy while the other enjoys a large window bank for an unobstructed view outside. Sitting inside the Renndienst, the designers wanted security and comfort to emanate from every facet of the modular interior. The passengers in the first row sit offset to the right and left in ergonomically shaped bucket seats. They can enjoy an unobstructed view of the road ahead and of their own dashboard screens. The rear seat headrests are installed in a floating position, which allows a clear view through the rear window. The luxury of adaptable space is made possible by the fully electric powertrain which is hidden in the underbody.
The central seating position swivels 180 degrees with a flick of the wrist and underscores the self-determination that Porsche sports cars represent. The curved sides of the back bench seat creates a particularly communicative area as it allows alternative seating positions for talking, working, and relaxing. Porsche designers say the materials of the future include renewable resources such as wood, reinterpreted and combined with metals or sustainable plastics.
Porsche engineers and designers have a unique approach to innovation. They’re not interested in replicating an established idea, they want to build something new. They ask themselves what a Porsche could be. This process provides answers to questions that no one has asked before. Ingenuity, quality, and originality are the values that have made Porsche successful. As we look into the years to come, Porsche will continue to break new ground in design from the inside out.
