Early August 2023


A Message From the Executive Board:

We hope that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the PVGP events and our HPDE and Cookout this past weekend.   It was great to see hundreds of our members at both events. Thank you to all the organizers and on-the-ground workers for 2 outstanding back-to-back weekends of car shows, great food, fun driving, and social time. As we stated at the PVGP Saturday auctions, the winner of the 2023 PCA Boxster or Cayman GTS was in our region.  We announced the winner as planned at the Pitt Race cookout following the HPDE session.  Congratulations to Matt and Jean Wimer – they purchased the winning PCA National Raffle ticket this year!

Hope to see you all soon,

Gus, Drake, Tim, Tom, and Ed

Need a great way to enjoy the first weekend of August? How about starting your Saturday at The Lot at Edgewater restaurant in Oakmont?

The Lot has attractive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, and the adjoining cigar bar features products from Oakmont’s Smoke n’ Guns shop.

The venue has a large parking lot and an outside covered patio that overlooks the parking area. Parking space for Porsches has been reserved along the Allegheny Avenue (Railroad Side) of the restaurant.

There is no cost for this event and registration is not necessary.  Just show up with your favorite gem of German engineering and share some coffee, breakfast, and time with your fellow ARPCA members.

Pittsburgh Cars and Coffee: – August 12th

From: https://pghcnc.com/about/

“Started in 2010, Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee is a non-profit social club focusing on exotic and modern performance automobile enthusiasts in Western Pennsylvania. We hold bi-weekly meets at Generoasta Coffee in Warrendale as well as other shows and charity events throughout the year.”

From: https://pghcnc.com/calendar/

“Pittsburgh Cars ‘N’ Coffee will have Porsche as the featured vehicle for our August 12th meet.  The main parking area will be completely reserved for Porsche-only vehicles.  We usually have well over 100 Porsches in attendance for this event. You are welcome to bring your non-Porsche sports cars but ask that you do not park in the main coned-off area.  We appreciate everyone’s cooperation so that we may park the featured vehicles together.”
