Frank Adeli is the founder and owner of Exclusive Option. Starting from an obsessive dilemma of how to skillfully modify the exterior and especially the interior of his personal 911 in an uprated OEM+ manner, he found great difficulty in sourcing rare and exclusive interior parts, so he decided to create them himself. At Exclusive Option he has created a team that specializes in the production of extremely high quality factory style leather and alcantara options for late model Porsches. There Frank manages and designs the production of these bespoke interior components, with dreams of becoming a full-scale supplier for other brands and eventually a renowned coachbuilder in the automotive industry.
