For nearly 50 years, Christophorus has offered Porsche drivers and fans a spiritual home and considers itself a primary ambassador, mediator and communicator between Porsche and its worldwide customers.

Today, more than 260,000 copies of Christophorus are distributed worldwide in six different languages.
