Remember the cool Porsche art exhibitions we shared about just a few weeks ago?

Well, there’s something new to see yet again from Porsche. The temporary experiential brand space on the ground floor of Mandala Club, which previously housed Daniel Arsham’s “Crystal Eroded Porsche 992” art car, transforms once again to become Curvistan, a publicly-accessible gallery, event space and hangout.

If Pakistan or Uzbekistan immediately come to mind, you’re not too far off. Inspired by country names, Curvistian is said to be a home for lovers of Soulful Driving - the tagline of Curves Magazine by Stefan Bogner. He sees roads as the destination in itself, and even did a three week road trip in Malaysia just to search for the best driving routes.

But the main attraction has to be the Porsche 550 Spyder flown over specially from the Porsche Museum. Porsche’s first model to be designed specifically with motorsport in mind, the very car on display is the one with Hans Herrmann at the wheel in 1954, where it won the gruelling Carrera Panamericana endurance road race in Mexico. It is fitted with a special racing engine, which eventually got the name “Carrera” from its race engineers. As we all know, the name stuck. According to Hagerty, an example of this extremely rare heritage sports car sold for as high as US$4-5 million (S$ 5.3-6.6 million) previously. Given that this is the “OG” car, I cannot imagine how much more valuable it must be.

A collection of visuals from the Porsche Museum Archive, as well as a selection of eight vintage watches from brand partner TAG Heuer are available for viewing. A special collection of Porsche Museum-sourced and Curvistan-themed merchandise is also available for sale.

Porsche in the City
We were also at the official launch of the Porsche NOW pop-up at Guoco Tower. The idea is that instead of traveling to a showroom at, say, Leng Kee, you can now pop in right after work, or while grocery shopping.

A team of Porsche staff are on hand to bring you on a test drive, specify your next Porsche or tell you about new finance and insurance products. There’s also a fully-stocked coffee bar, where visitors can enjoy a morning or afternoon boost.

With the Porsche NOW pop-up being only a temporary space, interior surfaces and furniture items throughout the new Porsche NOW pop-up are left intentionally unvarnished; the walls are lined with a minimalist yet chic décor from Germany, and the floor, as well as ceilings, are unfinished for an industrial look.

The new Porsche Studio Singapore is currently planned to be launched in the second half of 2023, and will supersede the Porsche NOW pop-up when ready.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
