Porsche owners have long reveled in their ability to smoke the competition on track and street, but now Porschephiles can also leave their marque's mark on the backside of burgers, hotdogs and ribeyes. Grill marks, of course.
Barbeques Galore and Porsche Design Studio have burned the midnight oil for two years while working on the the new X-Series Grill. Under its sleek, German-styled exterior lies some fairly hot grilling technology. Instead of the standard gas burners found in most grills, the X-Series uses four infrared burners that can crank out 52,000 BTUs using 50 fewer flare-ups. By our very rough shadetree estimates, that should be good for a zero to steak time of about 10 minutes. Or so.

With a starting sticker price of $5,999 Porsche Design's first grill comes with a motorized rotisserie, an LCD temp display with remote probe, and an insulated double-walled hood. Step up to the X-Series Island (above) for $8,499 for a stainless steel finish and concealed cupboards and gas cylinder storage.

All models are covered under a lifetime warranty for service, parts and repair. Also included is the right to brag to your numbers that you have a Porsche in your backyard.

      Peasants all. This thing is gorgeous and technologically superior to all competition. I'm ordering one today.

      This looks like it would make the best piece of office furniture ever. "Lunch at my desk, everybody!"

      Gas grill = fail. Charcoal or nothing!

      So be sure you don't tell the local painter/handyman to paint the porch green....

      For six grand, I can buy the back end of a wrecked 911 and build a grill out of that.

      Does anyone actually buy this overpriced "Porsche Design" crap?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Porsche Design = stuff for snobs

      Porsche Design really are the laziest and most unimaginative team in the world. From their cars to their novelty items to hard drives to this. Such blandness and boredom. I'm all for the "beauty in simplicity" ideal but their products... terrible!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Products are just ok, it's the PRICES that are terrible. High prices do not a high quality product make. All it does is encourage Chinese knock-offs.

      My $500 Weber works just fine and with my leftover money I can then buy a number of modifications to make my much less expensive car out run a Porsche at the track. Plus then I don't have to dress in all Porsche clothes while at the track and don't have to look like a toolbox.

      Win, win, win

      this is a car site , not a barbeque site , why is this news here ? just because the design company name begins with Porsche doesn't mean it's car news.

      Boy that is one pretty piece of patio furniture! I can use it to store the lump charcoal for my Big Green Egg. I prefer a Porsche for spirited drives to the market for my choice of tatey meat for grilling.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That would be tasty meat. If the meat is tatey it is clearly not fresh!
