This will probably fall more into the dreaming category for most of us at this point, but it’s still fun to think of the possibilities. To me, this is the ultimate start to a new Porsche’s life.
Imagine placing your order for your brand new Porsche, we’ll use a 911 GT3 as an example since we’re dreaming here. You go to the dealer, pick out all of the specifics, customize every detail, charge the total on your American Express Centurion card (cause that’s what you do in dreams) and sign the final paperwork. You have the ultimate sports car, configured just the way you want it, being built just for you.
Now fast forward to the day it rolls off the factory line. What would be the absolute perfect place for the first time you slip behind the wheel? Downtown traffic? No. Your neighborhood streets? No. The parking lot of the local grocery store? No. The Autobahn? YES! Imagine the day you and your new Porsche meet for the first time…in Germany! The birthplace of the amazing car you spec’d out just the way you wanted it to be. Being driven for the first time in it’s own natural habitat.
Enter Porsche’s European Delivery Program.
Porsche has some incredible programs for taking delivery of your brand new Porsche IN Germany. You get a special factory tour, VIP treatment and even an option for going to the Hockenheimring race track to really “test” things out. After that you can take part in driving tours or venture out on your own through Europe.
To fuel your dreams a bit more, here are a couple of cool programs they offer:
The Grand Tour
Twice a year, Porsche offers a souped up version of their European Delivery program. The Grand Tour includes a visit to the new Porsche Museum, VIP Factory Tour, cocktail reception and welcome dinner. The following day, the group takes delivery of their new Porsches at the factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen with the rest of the day spent at the Hockenheimring race track to put your new car through its paces. The second day is wrapped up with a farewell dinner.
The Ultimate Vacation
This option puts you in charge of where you go, the sights you see and the places you visit in Europe. After spending a day at Porsche visiting the Factory Museum and Zuffenhausen factory, with lunch in the VIP lounge thrown in of course, you get the keys to your new Porsche and are bid farewell to enjoy the sights and roads of Europe. Swing over to Paris, down to Switzerland, over to Prague or just spend your time on the Autobahn. It’s up to you.
Once you’re done with your adventure, drop your car off at the factory or one of the additional drop off locations in Europe and Porsche will wrap things up for you. They take care of shipping your car stateside, including little details like insurance. You can even have them sort out any warranty work that needs to be done before you ship your car home.
