Porsche Experience in Atlanta, GeorgiaEnlarge Photo
Porsche enthusiasts now have a new option for taking delivery of their new sports cars (and crossovers). That's because Porsche has opened an Experience Center located on the grounds of the automaker's new Atlanta, Georgia, headquarters.
The Experience Center officially opened yesterday with California forensic attorney and accountant Tracy Blumenthal taking delivery of her Cayenne S E-Hybrid at the facility.
Porsche says that the Experience Center program includes a tour, an in-depth overview of the owner's new vehicle, lunch in the facility's fine dining Restaurant 356, and 90 minutes of lessons at the adjacent 1.6-mile driver development track.

As the first to take delivery in Atlanta, Blumenthal also got a demonstration lap in a 918 Spyder, though former factory driver and 24 Hours of LeMans winner David Donohue was at the wheel.
The automaker offers delivery at the Experience Center for no extra cost, but says that it limits reservations for the program.
Porsche also offers conference and meeting facilities at its North American headquarters facility.
Porsche's new regional headquarters is actually on the grounds of a former Ford Motor Company assembly plant, which closed in 2006 after nearly 60 years of building cars. None of the Ford facilities are still on site.
