We are always excited to hear about amazing new Porsche projects around the world and see them come to fruition to allow Porsche as a brand, to continually reach new heights.
Recently, Porsche Korea has been working with famous South Korean BLACKPINK member Jennie Kim (also known as Jennie Ruby Jane or JENNIE) on an exciting new collaboration, which has seen the K-pop (Korean pop music) star bring her dream car to life. The dream car in question is based on the all-electric Taycan 4S Cross Turismo as part of the Sonderwunsch programme.
After finding fame with her ultra-popular girl group BLACKPINK, JENNIE ventured out into her solo music career, which gained her even more fans from around the world. With 70.35 million followers on her Instagram (as of September 24th, 2022), JENNIE influences her audience on a global scale.
Named “Taycan 4S Cross Turismo for Jennie Ruby Jane“, this special Porsche model is finished in metallic black with “Paint to Sample” Meissenblue accents throughout. A noticeably unique aspect of the design choices for this Sonderwunsch model include the cloud imagery in the “Jennie Ruby Jane” logo that is featured on this custom Taycan model. The decision to include this was very important for JENNIE as she reflected: “I’m especially proud of having designed the visualisation of the clouds. I spend a lot of time travelling around the world – the sky and the clouds are my travelling companions and a beautiful symbol of these unique experiences. This is why I feel a special connection to them and am so passionate about photographing these nature motifs.”
As this Porsche model is described by JENNIE as her “own very personal Porsche”, we were delighted to see that someone very special to her was considered an important factor in the design, her Pomeranian “Kuma” (Japanese for “bear”). The Taycan model features a black dog box specially curated with Meissenblue highlights to match the Porsche car. This addition also includes the name of the Pomerianian on the front.
Holger Gerrmann, CEO Porsche Korea commented: “It was an exciting experience working with JENNIE from BLACKPINK on Porsche Korea's first Sonderwunsch project. JENNIE is an influential global icon that represents a generation of young and creative opinion leaders and the 'Generation Z' in Korea,"
This new Sonderwunsch model will be featured at ‘the Sonderwunsch Haus’ at the start of BLACKPINK’s world tour in Seoul. We look forward to following the journey of “Taycan 4S Cross Turismo for Jennie Ruby Jane“ and all of the other innovative Sonderwunsch models to come.
