Porsche just announced that their new Porsche Experience Center in Carson, California is open for customers around the United States. The huge complex measures in at 53-acres and serves as the new home for Porsche Motorsport North America.
The Porsche Experience Center in California also includes a 4.1 mile track with eight different sections for driver development. The facility also includes several other things like a fine-dining restaurant and an all inclusive vast race-car exhibit.
Leisure activities in the complex include a $383 60-minute driving experience with a Porsche instructor on the driver development track with a Porsche 718 Boxster. Opt for the 911 Turbo or the 911 GT3 and that would raise the price to $950 per 30-minute session.
President and chief executive of Porsche Cars North America ‘Klaus Zellmer’ highlighted the importance of selecting California during a discussion at the facility; “As our largest single market in the U.S., California has played an integral role in Porsche’s success throughout our 66-year history in the United States. Our new west coast destination provides a unique product and brand experience for our customers and fans in a region where the automobile is so passionately celebrated.”
It wasn’t cheap either, the Porsche Experience Center cost around $60 million to build. This makes the United States the first country to ever have two Porsche Experience Center facilities with the already existing Atlanta center. Another one is being built in Shanghai, China at the moment.
