Porsche has had such a successful experience running their $100 million Experience Center in Atlanta that they dropped $60 million dollars on building a second, 53-acre facility in L.A. The new Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles is located on the 405 Freeway in Carson, California.
Serving as the premier West Coast destination for the public, including automotive enthusiasts and Porsche customers, and providing Porsch-heads with everything from motorsport activities, to car meets, exhibitions, even dining, Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles’s main feature is a driver development track with eight educational modules totaling 4.1 miles.
Those of you with a little bit of age under their belt will probably remember the driving course in NFS: Porsche Unleashed video game. Well, you can now live that in real life at the Porsche Experience Center, honing your driving skills on a purpose-built course under the instruction of Ace Factory Drivers. There are two handling circuits, an ice hill, an off-road course, a dynamics area, a launch control and acceleration straight, as well as a low friction handling circuit, low friction circle, and hydraulic kick-plate.
Other highlights of Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles include a business center with 6,000 square feet of main event space, Restaurant 917, historic Porsche race cars, and… California accounts for a large chunk of Porsche’s North American sales with 12,016 cars delivered to customers just last year.
