When they're not styling phones, cologne, toasters, special-edition automobiles and such, Porsche Design keeps itself busy with sportswear for the driver and enthusiast. Previous collections from the company's Driver's Selection have taken all sorts of themes: Martinis, collaborations with Adidas, even the color white. But this spring the merchandizing division takes to the track with the Motorsport Collection.
The men's lineup includes polo shirts, board shorts, fleeces, t-shirts and more, including a limited-edition Gore-Tex jacket of which only a highly symbolic 911 examples will be made. The Motorsport Collection also includes items for women and children, plus coordinating accessories, all done up in matching white and gray with red trim, complete with sponsor logos in case your own endorsement deal hasn't come in yet. Read all about it in the press release after the jump and check 'em out in the gallery below.
