Celebrate 60 Years of Porsche in America - Share Your Story!

Website: Celebrating 60 Years of Passion in America 

The Porsche brand was established in Germany in 1948. In 1950, New York City businessman Max Hoffman introduced the Porsche 356 to America, sparking a love affair that has lasted for six decades. Today, America's passion for Porsche is deeper than ever, and our Family Tree sports strong new branches. To help us celebrate 60 years of Porsche in America, we’re inviting owners, fans and enthusiasts to ell their Porsche stories on our Porsche Family Tree. We're also looking for the oldest Porsche sports cars in the U.S. in the My Porsche Classic Search. One vehicle may be selected to be displayed in the Porsche exhibit at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.  Visit the website for more information.  Thank you, America! We can't wait for the next 60 years!


08.11.2010 : New Insurance Solution for Dedicated Track and Race Cars

Porsche Club of America and Lockton Affinity Announce a New Insurance Solution Providing Protection for Dedicated Track and Race Cars

Springfield, VA (August 9, 2010) – In June 2009, Porsche Club of America and Lockton Affinity announced the PCA – HPDE Insurance Program.  This innovative program providing single-event physical damage coverage has proven to be a very popular member benefit for PCA members that attend High-Performance Driver’s Education events.  PCA recognizes a significant portion of their members have dedicated track cars and racecars that can’t be insured by standard auto policies.  The new PCA – Transit, Storage, and Paddock (TSP) Insurance Solution provides affordable off-track coverage for dedicated track and race cars, trailers, tools and equipment, and parts and spares.

“Many of our driving enthusiast members own Porsches that are used exclusively for DE events and Club Races,” said Vu Nguyen, Executive Director of PCA.  “The exposure to damage while participating in on-track events is obvious, but many individuals fail to recognize the exposure to loss off-track .”  Theft, fire, and trailer-overturn are just a few of the many ways that enthusiasts’ track and race-related property are exposed to loss off the track.

“As a Club Racer myself, I recognized that the majority of insurance solutions for track or race cars are geared toward professional race teams,” said Ryan Staub, Producer at Lockton Affinity.  “Our customized insurance solution was designed with the typical car club enthusiast in mind.  We have arranged for a 5% discount for PCA members and the policy allows for members to cover all of their track-related property under one affordable annual policy!”

The PCA endorsed TSP Insurance Solution, administered by Lockton Risk Services, offers a stated-value insurance policy providing affordable annual coverage for dedicated track or race cars, trailers, and other track-related property.  To be eligible, the vehicle can not be licensed for street use.  This policy was designed with the amateur racer or enthusiast in mind.  TSP Insurance Solution can cover everything from your Cup Car to your Spec 944, or even your 993 used as a dedicated track car.  The policy is very affordable – a $20,000 dedicated track or competition car and a $5,000 trailer can be covered for as little as $250 annually.

“PCA is excited to offer another fantastic benefit for our members,” said Kurt Gibson, PCA President.  “We’ve  researched the market and tailored this product to help protect our members motorsports property.  Special thanks to our partners at Lockton Affinity for their efforts in developing the policy.

Please visit pca-tsp.locktonaffinity.com for more information or to purchase a PCA – TSP Insurance Solution policy.

PCA Members Invited to Contribute to New Cayenne Website

From the groundbreaking statement of Model No. 1 to the precision performance and reliability of the 911, Porsche has been redefining the meaning of utility for over 60 years.

PCNA is inviting you, our most ardent supporters, to visit the new Cayenne website – cayenne.com – and contribute your personal definition.

Your opinion has always meant a lot to Porsche. We hope you will take the time to visit cayenne.com, not only to contribute your definition but to discover the new Cayenne. It’s more powerful yet more fuel-efficient. Lighter and more agile. And now, it’s more Porsche than ever.
