Shopping for the man who has everything? Chances are the guy doesn’t already own a pen made from the TecFlex piping inside a Porsche engine, or a wheeled suitcase outfitted with special silent-glide tires. Such high-tech gadgets can be found at the sleek Porsche Design store, whose color-lit walls—which slowly change from green to purple and back—are lined with men’s accessories inspired by the luxury car. In addition to the aforementioned pens ($75–$325) and suitcases ($820–$1,100), there’s also menswear, such as a chic pearlized-leather racing jacket ($1,600). And if you’re shopping with the man who has everything, he’ll surely gravitate to the shop’s pièce de résistance: a table that, with a mere touch, activates three plasma screens to play an animated film about any Porsche product you place upon it.
