Extra, not ordinary.
Sir Cecil Walter Hardy Beaton was a style icon of the twentieth century. His fame derived not only from his glamorous portrait photography but also from his extravagance. Invitations to his manor house in Wiltshire, England, were given with preference to beautiful people—or at least to those whose hair color complemented the curtains of Reddish House.
Eccentrics are a minority. You might find only one among ten thousand people. Their defining characteristic is a systematic streak of nonconformism. Eccentrics need courage. Their creativity can move mountains. Their quirks earn them affection. One eccentric individual might live with 7,500 garden gnomes, another “sentences only backward speaks.” Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion czar, had bowls mounted on gimbals in his car—so water for his dogs didn’t slosh onto the floor in curves.
Eccentrics are the rarest type of unconventional human being. But everyone harbors a desire for individuality—for autonomous thoughts and actions. For unique behavior instead of elegant uniformity or impersonal collaboration. For immunity to an epidemic of conformity. At the same time, the act of self-expression fosters an ever greater need to select one’s own form of belonging. Individualists seek to connect with other individuals. Interaction is as important as uniqueness—the preamble to the
Individualization means freedom of choice. Virtually no

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
