Porsche P’7911 Hammer Drill

Not only is Porsche designing espresso makers, as our friends over at Single Serve Coffee recently discovered, but they’re also getting into the tool world. Teaming up with Metabo, the Porsche design team has created an unusual tool that they humbly refer to as, "a perfect rotary hammer." Because they’re Porsche and they have to be different, they’ve put the handle on the top of the tool, with the theory that handling the hammer drill at its center of gravity gives the user more control and causes the tool to feel lighter. “In this product, design is an integral part of functionality,” says Roland Heiler, managing director of Porsche Design-Studios.

Like all good hammer drills, the P’7911 has settings for hammer drilling, chiseling, and just drilling. The body of the tool is made of carbon fiber and aluminum making for a lightweight and durable tool. It accepts SDS bits and comes with a case that, if we’re to believe the Metabo press release, “can be opened and closed with one hand.” Whatever that means.

Before you start getting out that credit card, you should know that you can’t get this fella in the United States (yet, we’ve heard that it’ll be released at some point, we’re not sure when though). But if you’ve got a connection in England, they can pick one up for 339.00 pounds, which translates to roughly $670.00. Looks like it's not just their cars that are expensive.

This tool is so perfect that it even has its own website. There’s more information on it as well as a video that’s worth watching if you want to get a closer look at the P’7911.

Available at XpressConstruction.com (for all you smugglers out there).
