Porsche is sparing no expense on building its upcoming West Coast Experience Center, which will be located in Carson, California just minutes from Los Angeles International Airport.

When completed, the facility will have a test track, a handling course, an off-road area and surfaces that can replicate wet, icy or snow-packed roads. It will also be home to the Porsche Human Performance Center, which specializes in fitness and endurance training for race car drivers.

Now comes word that Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA), currently located in Santa Ana, California, will also be moving to the West Coast Experience Center. PMNA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Porsche AG, and is the sole sales, service and parts provider for Porsche’s customer sports programs in North America.

Obviously, the move is a good fit for a division solely focused on making cars go faster and last longer in competition. Having access to an on-site test track also allows PMNA to more effectively work with its clients, while Experience Center visitors get to peek behind the curtain of Porsche’s motorsport operations.

PMNA’s president, Jens Walther, said the move will take its operation to the next level. “Our future home will offer us the space needed to expand our operations from engine and transmission building, parts supply and race support to developing our vintage racing services to the many owners of Porsche’s historic race cars in this country,” Walther said.

Work on the facility, one of four Porsche Experience Centers in the world, is expected to begin this summer, with a completion date in the fall of 2013.
