Porsche Motorsport North America to Relocate to Future Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles
| Move will result in better work environment, adds further spice to an exciting venue
Atlanta, May 23, 2012 – Today, Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) announced that Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Porsche AG and the sole sales and service provider for the German sports car maker's North American customer sports programs, will move its operations from Santa Ana to Porsche's future Experience Center in Carson, California. PCNA will build a 53-acre facility and road handling course at one of the busiest cross roads in the Greater Los Angeles area beginning this summer with the completion expected by fall of 2013.
'This not only makes sound business sense, but is symbolic as well,' said Detlev von Platen, PCNA's President and CEO. 'Aside from offering a modern, purpose built working environment, the motorsport specific operations will provide additional energy and dynamics to a facility that is all about performance both on the vehicle and human side. Thus our new Experience Center will perfectly symbolize the core of the Porsche brand, which has always been a successful blend of a passion for racing and for spirited yet responsible driving on open roads,' he added.
The new Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles will offer a world class test track and handling course, including areas where special surfaces replicate rain, ice and snow conditions plus a special off-road area that combines 45-degree declines and ascents. In addition, the Center will also offer programs focused on maximizing personal fitness, wellness and athletic performance. This unique facility, the Porsche Human Performance Center, will feature a leading sports science laboratory and training programs, incorporating the latest techniques used in preparing Porsche race car drivers.
