Early December 2023


Holiday Greetings Members of the ARPCA,

It’s the time of year when many people take the time to contemplate a very serious question, “What to get the Porsche lover that has everything?”  Fear not the internet has you covered.  First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t take the time to promote The Mart, the ARPCA’s official marketplace.  We have tires, wheels, brakes, and even a few cars!

Elsewhere on the internet, Porsche Design has many unique offerings.  I really enjoy the 911 Spotlight Classic it’s a touch activated mini spotlight made from an actual Porsche oil filter.  They also have a whole section devoted to PCA clothing, bags, and luggage.  Our local partners at Two-Eight Printing have a wide variety of ARPCA branded clothing including shirts, jackets, and hats.  Finally, I took a spin around Etsy they have keyholders made from repurposed Porsche cam shaft covers and some snazzy Porsche inspired metal wall art.

When you are done with or just need a break from shopping you could always join the Porsche Touring Crew for lunch at the Kaufman Tavern on Tuesday December 5th.

Have a happy and safe holiday season!
