The developed positioning corridor – reflected in the »The Engineers of Luxury« tagline – honors Porsche’s strong history in engineering while giving the brand its place in various luxury categories. The prerequisite for its successful market positioning is the consistent category management system, which is established and maintained through the corresponding decision-making tools. This creates a clear thematic brand profile that is continued from the communication to the products.

The origin of the Porsche Design philosophy is Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, designer of the legendary Porsche 911. This approach to design is also the core of Porsche Design Studio, located in Zell am See, Austria. As part of the Porsche Design brand portfolio, the studio develops products for Porsche Design collections as well as prominent partners such as Siemens, IWC and Grohe. These creations – ranging from furniture to yachts and medical tools – have the potential to become classics in their own right.
