Carrera Porsche Design 5621 40 Tricolor


Vintage Carrera Porsche Design 5621 40 sunglasses feature an all gold Carrera Austrian frame, but the real stars of the show are the rare Porsche Carrera tri-color lenses that incorporate hues of pink, blue, and purple. Carrera made tricolor Porsche Design lenses in only very small quantities, mostly as a special order from eyewear boutiques in the mid to late 1980s. In addition to the tricolor lens set, you'll also get a second set of brown gradient lenses giving you 2 distinct looks in one pair of sunglasses - a unique trait of vintage Carrera Porsche Design sunglasses. The center hinge on these Carrera 5621 sunglasses raises to allow the current set of lenses to be removed and the other set of lenses inserted into small prongs on the frame and clamped down with the center hinge. Carrera revolutionized sunglass design with the Porsche Carrera line in the 1980s, introducing optyl as a lens material which was much lighter than glass and thus allowed for larger frame sizes. The Austrian Carrera 5621 gold plated frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple with PD lenses measuring approximately 2.75" x 2.25" at the widest points. Both sets of interchangeable lenses are marked Porsche Design, and the inside of one ear stem is marked Carrera Porsche Design while the inside of the other stem is impressed with the serial number plus Made in Austria 5621 40. Rare.
