Porsche and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) have signed an agreement to open a Porsche Experience Center at Le Mans. The new complex is set to be opened in 2015 and will cover more than 3.000 square meters.
It will be an ultra-modern complex with a restaurant, a dedicated driver training zone, a Porsche Service Center and a Porsche customization area. In addition, the new Experience Center will feature a permanent exhibition of classic Porsche models and will provide a full range of driving experiences to Porsche owners, future clients and enthusiasts.
"Porsche has forged its sporting legend in the Le Mans 24 Hours," says ACO president Pierre Fillon in a press release. "It follows naturally that this new, modern innovative complex should take its rightful place inside our circuit. In the year in which Porsche is making its comeback to the event’s blue riband category to try and add to its record number of victories, this Center will strengthen the increasingly-close links with this prestigious brand."
For his part Porsche’s French MD Marc Quayoun says, "Opening a Porsche Experience Center here holds a special meaning for us. Porsche’s return to LMP1 has opened up great prospects for the future. The Center will be a fantastic venue for all Porsche enthusiasts to come and share their passion. Our clients will also be able to test drive the model they are hoping to buy with their various chosen options."Source: Porsche
