Sean Wotherspoon’s Taycan 4S Cross Turismo: See it on our 2022 Concept Lawn
August 21, 2022
The designer and influencer Sean Wotherspoon is all about fashionable streetwear with a vivid color palette and unusual materials.
The 32-year-old joined forces with Porsche in designing his own personal Taycan 4S Cross Turismo. Experts brought Wotherspoon together with the Porsche Style designers and worked with him to organize the world premiere of the car on Instagram earlier this summer. The design process involved virtual reality, a trip to Weissach, and the Porsche Design Studio.
The car features a completely custom interior and exterior including four custom colors named after Sean’s family: Nash Blue, Sean Peach, Loretta Purple and Ashley Green. The idea is for the interior to continue the color-blocking concept of the exterior. Corduroy and cork, which he also uses for his streetwear, were the materials Wotherspoon wanted. Corduroy has a long tradition at Porsche, with the soft, ribbed material adorning the seat centers of the Porsche 356 as early as 1952. In the new art car, this woven material was added in Atacama Beige, which Porsche used in the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition in 2020.
The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo designed by Wotherspoon is rounded off by elements from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. These include the 21-inch Cross Turismo Design wheels, the rear wiper cover, and the light strip with Porsche lettering in Black.
Customers can implement comparable projects within Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’s Sonderwunsch program, a reinterpretation of the legendary service of the same name from the late 1970s, which launched in 2021.
