Automobile. Personality. Feeling.
The Taycan marks the beginning of Porsche’s journey to fulfill its commitment to make the automotive industry sustainable.
However, the soul of a car is brought to life by a human. In our opinion, the vehicle and its owner are inseparable – the story of one cannot be told without the other. That is why Porshe Center Riga at the end of the summer of 2022 launched a unique project: meeting Taycan owners, Latvian businesspeople to talk about their professional experience, free time, sustainability and, ultimately, about what it is like to ride the new and nimble steed, the Taycan.
Each story, each person and also each driving experience is unique, as evidenced in the series of five videos we present to you. At the same time, these stories prove that a thriving business can be established and run in Latvia.
Taycan – the soul of an electrified Porsche at your fingertips. Own one of Porsche’s engineering masterpieces and join the Taycan community of young leaders. Build your own model, book a consultation or try the leasing calculator for your preferred Taycan model.
Five Latvian business leaders, entrepreneurs and industry professionals talk about their daily lives, their achievements and how the Porsche Taycan adds a positive note to their everyday lives.
SIA “Timber Trade Development” company owner
Timber Trade Development is located in Biksti, Dobele Region. The company’s owner and head Mārtiņš Zvirbulis says that he has tried his hand at different jobs and found out that the most important thing is to make an effort, not be afraid of what has been started, keep at it and, if a business is not going well, change it and try something else. The main thing is not to give up!
Ophthalmologist, plastic surgeon
Nataļja Samajeva has founded “My vision” brand, which is not just a company, but it embodies also her professional vision about the team, the high-quality service and individual approach to each customer. Nataļja said that she wished every customer felt happy, beautiful and healthy after visiting the clinic.

The color of Aivars’ Taycan is Neptune Blue, which is quite fitting takin into consideration the company’s line of business. And who else if not the ruler of the seas and oceans would we like to meet at the port?

Porsche Taycan, the perfect companion for a fun everyday life anywhere in Latvia.
You have to look for what is needed. The main thing is not to give up, but change!
My profession is a shining example of the importance of education; to grow we need to improve our performance every day!
In business, it's important to keep a curious mind and keep learning!
In 1997, Skulte Port’s harbor master invited us to work here in Skulte, when there was actually nothing there.
The key to success is exports, of course, because exports ensure stability, create added value and foster development.
