Sportscar Together Day Celebrations

What a day of celebration! This past Sunday, Porsche Victoria celebrated “Sportscar Together Day” on June 10th, 2018, capping what would be the end of a 3-day worldwide party conceived by Porsche AG.

“On June 8, 1948, a dream about a sports car literally came true: With the approval of the 356 “No. 1” Roadster, Ferry Porsche completed the construction of a sports car that reflected his vision – and today is considered to be a design icon. The success story of the Porsche company since then is well known and Ferry Porsche’s dream is as alive as ever.” [1]

What a pleasure it was to see so many Porsche owners attend Porsche Center Victoria's celebration of 70 years of Porsche Sportscar! On behalf of Porsche Canada and all of us at Porsche Centre Victoria, we would like to thank all of those who took part in this landmark Anniversary. It is always an inspiring sight to assemble so many marvellous Porsche models and watch them in motion or displayed together in a special place such as the Villa Eyrie Resort.

We were delighted to have 75 Porsche owners and 150 guests overall in attendance for Sunday's festivities at the dealership. For those who missed it, the event activities included a fun pancake breakfast and a 20-point scenic scavenger hunt that lasted nearly three hours and concluded at the beautiful Villa Eyrie Resort, where lunch was served in the resort's new amphitheatre overlooking Finlayson Arm. One of the highlights was the beautiful chocolate raspberry Porsche cake, created in-house by pastry chef Matthias Conradi - you had to taste it to believe it! There were many prizes, laughs, and most importantly, memories to be had.

The local passion for the brand, enthusiasm for gathering together and loyalty to Porsche Centre Victoria is what compels us to organize events like Porsche "Sportscar Together Day". We had a wonderful time and we look forward to future events with the Porsche community!

Sincerely,

Volker Grady
General Manager
