PORSCHE BREAKS GROUND AT AEROTROPOLIS ATLANTA

The next time you fly into Atlanta, would you like to drive your choice of Porsche cars on a test track right next to the airport? That dream will soon be a reality.
 
This video features the CEO of Porsche along with several other global and North American executives from the company. Renderings of the new Georgia facility and test track are also included. In addition, interviews with Governor Nathan Deal and Mayor Kasim Reed detail the reasons why Porsche selected the Aerotropolis Atlanta site near the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
 
Porsche North America’s new headquarters at Aerotropolis Atlanta will consist of a 26.4-acre complex and will employ 400 workers and create 100 jobs.
 
Porsche’s expansion and new location will consolidate U.S.-based Porsche employees from Porsche Cars North America as well as the company’s financial, business and consulting arms. The site will encompass not only the company’s U.S. headquarters, but the Porsche Technical Training Center as well as the Porsche Customer and Driving Experience Center, featuring a 1.6-mile test track and handling circuit.
