Porsche Experience Center at Hockenheimring — Demand has been sky high since Porsche just recently, in October 2019, opened its seventh Experience Center in the world and the one closest to its biggest fan base and worldwide Stuttgart headquarters, hosting a Sportscar Together Day that attracted 70,000 fans, 9,000 of whom drove in with their own Porsches. Much of the next year is fully booked and sold out. PCA UCR was extremely fortunate to secure this venue for our group.
Please note that the PEC is a fully outfitted visitor centre, you do not need to participate in any driving activities, and as such features exhibition areas like a museum, as well as a café, restaurant, lounge area, classic area, driving simulators and a retail store. Some may not want to participate in driving activities and can simply enjoy the ambiance, as well PCA UCR will enjoy an included group gourmet lunch. Pricing is not yet available for driving experiences but to get an idea, for the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta it ranges from $365 US (for 718 Cayman or Boxster on-track and Cayenne or Macan off-road) to $475 (mid-range 911 on-track) to $875 (911 Turbo, 911 GT3 on-track). Please note there is no guarantee that we can drive on the full grand prix track but, rest assured, PCA UCR will organize the best day possible for our group! Your tour leader Stefan will be taking out a new 911 on the track and a Macan on the off-road course, two to three hours total driving time, likely around $900 US total.
Optional trip excursions include, and we highly encourage selecting and participating in:
- Zugspitze cable car up the highest mountain in Germany, incredible views, $155 per person
- Bavarian brewery tour and beer tasting in Munich, $125 per person
