Disneyland for Grown-ups: 20 Pictures of Porsche Playground in Los Angeles
Basically a Disneyland for grown-ups, this Porsche Playground is located in Los Angeles and it is brand new!!
The 53-acre motoring heaven called Porsche Experience Center is located on 405 freeway in Los Angeles.
Located right between the two major Los Angeles-area traffic arteries, in a region famous for its beaches and car events, Porsche has come up with a destination to bring up to life the Porsche philosophy of Intelligent Performance.
It features a racing track, off road center, museum, driving simulator, a decked out shop, and has its own restaurant, so you can dine among the cars.
This is the perfect place if you are looking to spend some time off work and forget about everything. But most important, you’ll have lots of fun.
If you decide to visit, I want you to know that many options are at your disposal, just to make sure that you live a unique experience.
Once you arrive you can enjoy a nice meal at Restaurant 917 where you’ll have a lot of plates from you can choose, for everyone’s taste.
Because some of the cars are valued at more than $100,000 apiece, all drivers must sign liability waivers.
“It’s all about the brand,” said Detlev von Platen, a member of Porsche’s executive board. “We want to create an environment where you can feel, touch and value our brand.”
Now guests can enter the fabulous world of Porsche and get an insider’s look of their historic race cars and workshop team.
This is the place where drivers can try the latest Porsche models through driving modules meant to show off power, responsiveness, and safety at the core of Porsche engineering.
Called the Experience Center, the place where you can drive any Porsche you want, also offers event spaces and dining options, state-of-the-art driving simulators and retail store with exclusive PEC branded merchandise.
Drivers aren’t allowed to bring their own cars on the driving course. But local car dealerships can direct would-be buyers to the facility for a high-speed test drive. The fleet of cars at the facility include the 911, Panamera, 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman, Macan and Cayenne.
“You can bring your customer to this playground to show them what their car can do,” said Klaus Zellmer, president and chief executive of Porsche Cars North America.
The facility also includes a room where Porsche buyers can check out leather swatches and paint colors to design their own cars from the manufacturer.
Everything about German engineering and Californian style are bonded together to reach to the core of the meaning of Porsche, what really is: a brand, a company and an automotive manufacturer.
“In the beginning, I looked around and could not find the car I’d been dreaming of: a small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently. So I decided to build it myself.” Ferry Porsche
His dream of the perfect sports car has always been a part of Porsche engineering and every day they get closer and closer to that meaning with each model they manufacture.
And so, with this Porsche Experience Center, they are looking to do just that: always aim for the best and keep the customer happy all the times.
