Until now, when you purchased a new Porsche you had two options for delivery. Pick it up at the dealer where you purchased it, or head to Germany for the factory experience. Now, there's a third option, the New Vehicle Delivery program at the Porsche Experience Center (PEC) in Atlanta. The program enables customers to place a factory order for a new vehicle through any authorized Porsche dealer in the U.S. and take delivery directly from the experiential destination, located at One Porsche Drive in Atlanta.
The First Official Customer Delivery Took Place Last Week
California forensic accountant and attorney Tracy Blumenthal was the first official customer to participate in the program when she picked up her new Cayenne S E-Hybrid sport utility vehicle last week.
“We are thrilled to launch the New Vehicle Delivery program as another premium offering at our Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta,” said Andre Oosthuizen, Vice President, Marketing, for Porsche Cars North America. “We welcome further customers to follow the lead of Tracy Blumenthal and enjoy this exclusive opportunity to truly experience the Porsche brand.”
If you live near the Atlanta area, or feel like taking your new Porsche on a longer drive back home, delivery at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta seems like a great option. While you're responsible for getting yourself to One Porsche Drive, once you're there, the following VIP experiences are provided at no cost:
- a tour of the PEC (worth it all by itself if you haven't been)
- an in-depth vehicle orientation with a delivery specialist
- a 90-minute experience in a Porsche on the driver development track
- and lunch at Restaurant 356, Porsche’s fine-dining destination
Because Blumenthal is the first customer taking part in the New Vehicle Delivery program, she also enjoyed a special demonstration lap in an 887-horsepower 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid supercar with former Porsche race car driver and 24 Hours of Le Mans winner David Donohue.
“Porsche is a remarkable brand that I have repurchased multiple times, consecutively,” Blumenthal expressed. “You truly can’t understand the genius of these cars unless you have in fact had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of one.”
