Our Club's Crest

Our club’s crest was born in 1988, long before Porsche AG implemented a uniform format for all official Porsche Clubs worldwide

The crest was created and designed by our club member, 
Alan Leong. It incorporates many thoughtful and inspiring elements:

  • A lion head - bold, majestic and symbolic of our status as the “Lion City”, Singapura

  • A flowing mane - swept back by the wind as our Porsches moves swiftly ahead

  • Blue hues - reflects the different shades of the sea that surrounds our island city

  • V-for-victory notch on the top of the shield

Alan sketched the initial drafts by hand, and when he was finally satisfied, his wife helped capture the final draft digitally via computer-aided design.

The logo was subsequently updated to feature a narrower shield in the background.  The keen-eyed among us will note that the hand-drawn word PORSCHE was retained, up till today!

In June 2008, our Club requested Alan’s help to refresh the club’s crest by giving it a more modern 3D look.

The original crest featured the word ‘Motoring’, which was a legacy requirement by Singapore’s Registrars of Societies. The word was subsequently dropped when the requirement relaxed, as it was deemed obvious enough that our club's and members' passion is focused on motoring and driving our beloved Porsches!

Bonus information:  With Alan’s attention to detail, he incorporated 3D lighting to project a light source from the top-left, casting a light and shallow shadow.  Members will also note the lion’s mane sticking out of the crest; Alan mentions that’s how fast he’s going!

PCS’ current and official club logo is below, which is endorsed and in compliance with Porsche AG and Porsche Community Management.
