Factory Visit Programme 2017

The dates for the factory visit programme for 2017 have now been confirmed and the events are available for booking.  This year will be different from previous ones in that there will be three separate events ranging from a short two day visit to Stuttgart to a week long visit which includes time in Austria, and a visit to Leipzig – so hopefully something for everyone.
If you are interested in any of this trips then you can get further information including the detailed itinerary, pricing and an application form by emailing Richard Watling at factoryvisit@porscheclubgb.com or Mandy Sutch at the Clubhouse mem@porscheclubgb.com who will take your booking. You will need to fill in and return the application form with the deposit after which you will receive confirmation of your places and you can make your travel plans.
The three visits outline programme are as follows, subject to possible alterations to timing depending on availability, some opening hours and in some cases the weather.
April 9th to 13th Leipzig – where the Panamera, Cayenne and Macan are manufactured.
Arrival Sunday; On Monday - a guided walking tour of Leipzig and some free time; Tuesday - visit by train to Berlin with a coach and guided tour; Wednesday the Factory Visit including touring the control centre, assembly areas, and heritage collection followed by lunch then track time when Porsche bring out up to 10 new sports models for driving on their FIA approved track;  Thursday departure. This trip is designed for fliers – with local transport to the factory – but you can drive if you wish.
May 18th to 20th. Stuttgart – a simple visit of two days to the Zuffenhausen plant to see the assembly of engines and the full range of sports models.  Flying or driving visit with local transport to the Factory.
September 29th to October 5th plus travelling time. Drive to Salzburg via an en-route stop off; Saturday visit "Fahr(tr)aum the Ernst Piech collection of early Ferdinand Porsche designed vehicles, then a visit to Salzburg and dinner; Sunday drive the Grossglockner Katschberg and Ober Tauern passes and visit the Porsche heritage in Gmund; Monday drive the local historic Rossfeld hill climb, explore the Ober Salzberg area then there is a private visit and dinner at the Eagles Nest – the Kehlsteinhaus. Tuesday, drive to Stuttgart and en-route visit places such as the BMW Group centre in Munich; Wednesday the original Zuffenhausen plant and new Museum in Stuttgart.
Thursday depart for home.
These visits are planned to provide an insight into the world of Porsche past and present, to see the plants where your Porsche was probably built, and to explore parts of Germany you would probably never otherwise go to, enjoy the excellent roads and scenery while meeting and spending time with like-minded members.
We look forward to seeing you and to welcoming you on or other of the visits

    We are on the May 18-20 trip to Stuttgart and was wondering on peoples views/experiences on routes/hotels/restaurants for the journey there and back.
    Currently thinking on a single overnight stop on way down - Reims? - but a more leisurely return drive so as to take 7-8 days in total.  Planning on using Eurotunnel - wife is a very bad sailor.
