porscheOnly the second Porsche Experience Center in North America, and one of five such sites in the world, is coming to the City of Carson in about a year; the first in the U.S. is under construction in Atlanta.

The other sites are at the legendary Silverstone Circuit in Great Britain and Centers in Leipzig, Germany, and Shanghai, China. To be located adjacent to the 405 Freeway at Del Amo Boulevard and Main Street, the project is expected to break ground this summer and open in summer 2013. The centerpiece of the complex will be a test track and handling course, including areas where special surfaces replicate rain, ice and snow conditions.

A statement from Porsche said: “Driving enthusiasts can sign up for sessions with highly trained Porsche driving consultants, while new drivers can enroll in programs that teach technique for navigating today’s challenging roadways.” The Center will be located on a 53-acre site owned by Watson Land Company.
