The singer has shared photos of his new car, the Porsche 968 L'Art, and we've learned it comes with a TAG Heuer stopwatch on the dashboard…
Justin Bieber shared a glimpse of how he spent the past week on Instagram with snaps from the Moncler London Fashion Week show, some street style photos and one big purchase he added to his collection. The last photo he shared on his latest social media post is of a Porsche convertible that was quickly identified by the curious eyes of the brand's fans as a custom vehicle made just for the famous singer.
The Canadian pop star's new purchase was the Porsche 968 L'Art, a model created in collaboration between the Porsche brand and Parisian fashion house L'Art De L'Automobile, a streetwear brand founded in 2017 by former mechanic Arthur Kar. The car was first presented during Paris Fashion Week 2021, and it took 18 months to build it in a workshop in Paris. The design combines classic elements from the 90s of the original Porsche 968, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021, with modern features such as redesigned taillights with "KAR" lettering on some L'Art designs.
The car's interior also features custom details unique to Porsche's collaboration with L'Art, including Recaro-designed seats finished in Ecco Leather EL3, a Bose-designed sound system and a TAG Heuer dashboard stopwatch.
Bieber's model differs from the one released in 2021 in one very important and obvious way: the original shade of green has been updated to blue. The singer's other notable items in his car collection include the Porsche 997 Turbo, Porsche 911 Turbo, Lamborghini Aventador S, Ferrari F430, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport and Rolls-Royce Wraith. He especially likes to update the colour of his luxury vehicles and has painted his Ferrari, Cadillac, Audi A8 and Mercedes Sprinter matte black.
The Sun estimated the value of the singer's car collection at $4 million in 2022, before this latest Porsche purchase. This figure includes an estimated $2.25 million for the Bugatti (a gift from his friend, the rapper Birdman), $330,000 for his Rolls-Royce, $450,000 for his Lamborghini Aventador, $400,000 for his Mercedes-Maybach and three additional Lamborghini models, each worth over $200,000.
