CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF PORSCHE June 9, 2018

DATE, Sat June 9th
PLACE, Porsche of Wyoming Valley Motors
EVENT HOURS:  9am for PCA Members Participating in Tech Session,
                              11 am for those just participating in Wash/Shine, Peoples Choice Car Show
 
We plan to wrap up the days events by 4pm.
 
CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF PORSCHE
Every Porsche regardless of the form, age, or quantity of doors, is a sports car.  And a sports car is more than a typical car.  Its spirit is built on shared experiences and memories: accelerating together, cornering together, and laughing together.  Moments so valuable and exciting that you want to share them with others.  Moments that fascinate and last a lifetime.
Porsche knows these moments better than any other brand.  Ferry Porsche’s dream of the perfect sports car has always been fueled by experiences and shared with others, from the roots in motorsport, to our Porsche Clubs.
 
The 70th birthday of the brand will be celebrated on June 9th, in the US, and is an essential reminder of the brand, history and heritage, and the community of owners and enthusiasts who share our passion.
 
A morning Tech session for PCA members, followed by a Peoples Choice car show.  Anyone who visits the dealership the day of the event will have an opportunity to view cars from the early beginnings of the 356 in the 1950’s to the current super cars of today.  You will also vote for your favorite car !  
In the spirit of a day-long festival, think of it as a blend between a family birthday party and a block party meshed with cars and coffee and a Concours d’Elegance.
 
Please plan to attend and support our Dealership, and the Brand we all love so much !
