You may remember from a previous Porsche of Plano blog post that our favorite automaker was set to open a new North American facility, in Georgia. Well, we're thrilled to announce that it has finally come to fruition and Porsche has officially broken ground at the new U.S. headquarters and construction is underway.
Considering that Porsche has so much in store for its new center, we at Porsche of Plano aren't the least bit surprised to hear that it will likely take until the second half of 2014 to complete. Specifically, the new headquarters are slated to include the following:
- A technical training center to develop the talents of future Porsche service experts.
- A museum that covers past and current new Porsche models.
- And an industry-first 1.6-mile testing track for pushing models like the 911, Cayman and Panamera to their limits.
And, perhaps the most exciting aspect of all, is the fact that the new Porsche headquarters are estimated to add up to 100 jobs to the area, and house around 400 for the company, altogether.
"Porsche's presence has been embraced by Atlanta and the state of Georgia for the last 14 years," says Matthias Mueller, President and CEO of Porsche AG. "We're happy to reciprocate the sentiment with this new facility, which contributes to the state's economic development and also adds a bit of glamour to the local community."1
