Ready for the big distance
PUMA announces Molly Seidel as the newest athlete to join the PUMA Running family
This exclusive collection is only available in North America. One day before the official launch, a special pre-release on November 16 gave fans the opportunity to purchase the limited-edition sneakers early – but only if they’re fast enough. The window to buy the sneakers was only 2.7 seconds, inspired by the 0 to 100 km/h (0 – 60 mph) sprint of the Porsche 911 Turbo. Main sales started one day later and only a few shoes are still available on either PUMA.com (North America), our PUMA NYC flagship store, selected Porsche Stores or on Porsche-design.com
Generations of automotive enthusiasts have come to appreciate the heritage of the Porsche 911 Turbo. Establishing a new era in the 1970s, this icon set a benchmark for the sports car maker’s top-of-the-line 911 variant for its entire production. When the first turbo model was unleashed in 1975, it was back than the fastest production car in Germany. So, it was just a matter of time until PUMA and Porsche would cross paths to create a limited and unique footwear line celebrating the legacy of the eight generations of the Porsche 911 Turbo – an ideal match to the PUMA mission “Forever Faster.”
The Future Rider represents the first four generations of air-cooled 911 Turbos, Type 930 3.0 L and 3.3 L, Type 964 and Type 993. The Speedcat picks up the more recent Turbo variants, the Type 996, 997, 991 and 992.
