Early October 2023



Fall Greetings Members of the ARPCA,

Writers block – it happens to even the best writers, I am most definitely not the best of writers.  Feel free to ask our intrepid editor who does a constant battle with my uneven and often erratic use of punctuation. So, in my desperation but with an eye towards seasonality, I searched “Halloween Costumes for Cars.” There were a frankly shocking number of results.  Lots of examples of vehicular disguises geared towards “Trunk or Treat” events.  Buoyed by my success I got more specific with my search “Halloween costumes for Porsche cars.”  I was not disappointed.  Please feel free to enjoy “7 Ways to Dress Up Your Porsche for Halloween” and “Did you dress up your car for Halloween?”  The latter starts with Porsches, has a few toothy Miatas, and if you scroll a little there is a festive Porsche Crest jack-o-lantern.

In less scary news the 2024 Cayenne launch event is slated for Saturday October 7th at Sewickley Porsche, details and a link for registration below. The final Porshe at the Lot is this month; nothing like coffee and brunch in the crisp fall air.  The Women of ARPCA are shopping for a good cause and the Porsche Touring Crew is headed out for some fine Italian cuisine.  Still plenty to do before the weather drives us all indoors.

Special Event – 2024 Cayenne Launch Event

2024 Cayenne Launch Event

Join us for the launch of the all-new 2024 Cayenne.

“It’s one of the most extensive product upgrades in the history of Porsche,”
– Michael Schätzle, Vice-President Product Line Cayenne.

We invite you to be amongst the first few to see – and drive – the all new 2024 Porsche Cayenne. We’ll unveil the new 2024 Cayenne on Saturday, October 7th, and give you a full overview of all the great new features, including (spoiler alert) the return of the V8, as an extensively refined twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 engine replaces the previous V6 in the new Cayenne S.

Porsche at The Lot – October 7th

Join your ARPCA friends at The Lot for one last hurrah before the fall weather sets in and ruins the fun of outdoor gatherings.  The Lot at Edgewater is a full-service restaurant that offers a wide menu selection including traditional favorites like Belgian waffles, house-cured bacon steak, made-to-order omelets as well as specialties such as avocado toast with pepper jam and a fried egg.

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.

Porsche Touring Crew – October 24th

Franco’s, a hometown favorite here in McMurray, is a family owned and operated restaurant which takes pride in its Fine Italian Cuisine. Franco’s has been in the food business for over 25 years, and uniting people at the dining table for over 20.

The Touring Crew will be the first patrons to have lunch here in many years and we give Joe and Gina Damico a big thank you for that.

We will be arriving an hour later than usual for a 1 o’clock lunch at the convenience of the restaurant. Hope to see all our Porsche minded friends at this most special luncheon!!

There’s a rumor there might be a large multi-day event involving cars in the near future, maybe even some Porsches.  It would be great to have images of ARPCA members enjoying the PVGP. Thank you all in advance!
