Lakeside Cruise

THE 2021 LAKE ONTARIO BOULEVARD CRUISE Driving Tour started in the early morning of Sunday, Sept. 19 in one of the best ways possible — mingling with fellow Porsche enthusiasts and club members, surrounded by the shiniest of the latest and greatest that our favourite automaker has to offer, in the bright inviting showroom of our host, Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto.

New Car Sales Manager Michael Lapolla and Marketing Manager Derek Chen greeted the sold-out roster of 50 club members and guests with breakfast refreshments that included tasty coffee and big scrumptious muffins.

Our route was expertly crafted by driving tour veteran and 2018 Enthusiast of the Year Eric Wang, who led the group along with Cris Jaw and their puppy dog Honey. The sun was shining bright, it was a perfect late-summer day for a Porsche cruise.

If there is a good time to drive in Toronto, it would certainly be early on a Sunday. We didn’t hang around long — as the heart of the city began waking up and started beating, we set out east to drive some of the best roads that hug the shores of Lake Ontario, with pit stops into several interesting picturesque areas, opportunities to take in the magnificent scenery and pose for a couple of photo-ops.

The final destination was Railside Restaurant in Port Hope, where Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto treated all to a wonderful three-course lunch.

Afterwards prizes were raffled off with lucky winners receiving a blue GT3 cap or 1:43-scale 992 911 Targa 4S Special Edition model in sultry Gulf Blue.

Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto also presented Eric Wang with one of these 911 models in appreciation of all his efforts designing, testing and leading the event route. Being a gracious gentleman, Eric decided to give the model to the children of club member Sam Chow, who were along on the tour.

A big thank-you to Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto for not only hosting yet another memorable event for club members, but also for giving a PCA UCR membership to everyone who purchases a Porsche from the dealership. The club very much appreciates the support and, whenever possible, looks forward to returning the support.

Be sure to pop into the showroom whenever you are downtown Toronto. Inquire about a new or pre-owned Porsche, service for your current vehicle, parts, accessories and always-awesome Driver’s Selection goodies. </>
