Early September 2023


Greetings esteemed members of the ARPCA,

Not ready for an all-electric Porsche?  How about a Hybrid?  It appears that the iconic 911 will likely have a hybrid electrical powertrain available in the next 6 – 12 months.  Motor Authority has a few “spy” shots of the prototype in the wild and more details about it’s reported specs.  Read more about it here.

If you’re in the mood for a nice drive, the Porsche Touring Crew is planning and excursion to Deep Creek, Maryland.  If a nice Fall walk is more your speed, the Women of ARPCA have a Whiskey tour in the works.  Perhaps a nice breakfast or even brunch?  The last two Porsche at the Lot meet-ups are on the calendar and a great way to start your weekend.

In between mowing grass and raking leaves? We have plenty to keep you busy see below for links to more details.

Here’s to seeing you on the road,

Shawn Cressler – Web Support. Sharon Lunney – Newsletter Editor.

Porsche Touring Crew  – Dutch’s at Silver Tree – September 26th

We are excited to announce that the Touring Crew will be at Dutch’s at Silver Tree restaurant on Deep Creek Lake.

Late September is such a beautiful time for a ride. The air has cooled and the trees are just beginning to show fall colors.

This is not only a beautiful spot but the food is delicious. Crab Cake sandwich or platter, maybe a caprice salad with crab or how about a burger? Dessert? Can’t miss!! I’ve been coming here for 40 years and I’ll put my personal guarantee on it. I checked MSR today and Dutch’s is already filling up!
