Since 1969, Porsche have been using PUR-RIM parts in their vehicles. Most of such parts belong to the outer body panelling which has to comply with high demands on styling, wear, and stability. With the latest models, such outer panels are painted in the same colour as the rest of the body. For the first time, a passenger car is equipped with PUR-RRIM front panel and front and rear fenders. These parts are outstandingly light, dimensionally stable at high temperatures, abrasion resistant, and insensitive to trifle damage.
