Greetings Zone 4 Members,

   I recently attended the Winter Board of Directors Meeting in Los Angeles, arriving early enough to be able to take a beautiful new Porsche out at the Porsche Driving Experience.  After the day of fun, I spent 2 entire days in meetings, including the Board of Directors Meeting.  The weekend concluded with a reception held at the newly opened Porsche Experience Center in Carson, CA, where the evening began with a tour.  This beautiful facility consists of the Porsche Driving Experience, a Human Performance Center, a Driving Simulator Center, and Porsche Exclusive. 

  The center is also the new home of Porsche Motorsports North America, the only authorized provider in the US and Canada for the sale, parts supply, and service of all specially manufactured Porsche racecars.  A large glass wall provides visitors a view of the workshop, where historical racing cars are repaired and track vehicles are maintained.  In the lobby was displayed an amazing collection of Porsches including a 911R, a GT3RS, a 917, as well as a 959 prototype. The workshop display contains some very iconic racecars.  Following the tour, we enjoyed a cocktail reception in the café adjacent to the boutique before sitting down to a wonderful dinner at Restaurant 917.

  With the unseasonably warm days sprinkled throughout this winter, many members have already been able to take off the car covers, unplug the trickle chargers, and get out for a drive.  I attended Motor-Stadt’s Annual Holiday Dinner at the Spartan Hall of Fame Café, which had an excellent turnout from the region.  This year’s event included a speaker.  Lori Mauthe, whose father, Peter Schutz was the CEO of Porsche AG in the 80’s, entertained us with numerous anecdotes of his time in charge of Porsche, including how he saved the 911.
I also recently attended ARPCA’s All Member Dinner at the Blue North Restaurant in Pittsburgh.  The region filled the restaurant to capacity for this dinner, which celebrated the region’s new members.

  They welcomed the new members with wonderful donated prizes and encouraged them to continue to participate and enjoy the camaraderie that is PCA.  During the evening they also presented their enthusiast of the year awards.  It was a wonderful evening and everyone had an enjoyable time.
 
  As region calendars firm up and events continue to be added, please remember to check your inboxes, region’s newsletter and website  for the most up to date information about events available to you.  Below are just some of the events taking place this month.

Thanks,
Michael
