Draft – Early October- 2021

Greetings and Salutations,

What do the following films have in common? Le-Mans (1970,) Against All Odds (1983,) No Man’s Land (1987,) and Bad Boys (1994.)  If you said Porsches that’s obvious.  Full marks if your answer was a Porsche 911.  Driven by Steve McQueen, Robert Redford or Will Smith the 911 has made its mark in popular cinema. Why the 911 trivia?  It matched well with the month as Porsche launched their new 911 Carrera and Carrera S in October 2008.

In non-trivia news fall is fully upon us.  As the leaves change, they make an excellent backdrop for photos of your Porsches.   A perfect photo of your beloved 911, 944, 356, Cayanne, Taycan, or Boxster would look great on ARPCA.com.  We are always looking for new submissions to feature and share.

~Best Regards

Draft – Mid June – 2021

ARPCA Members,

Greeting and Salutations! So fellow movie fans I have to ask, am I last person to realize that The Avengers Headquarters is actually One Porsche Drive in Atlanta?  Tony Stark may drive Acuras and Audis but he chose Porsche’s North American HQ as the home of the Avengers.   But it turns out that 5 Marvel movies (more info here) have used the location. It is a really cool looking building after all.  Maybe stop by in real life?  Use the test track?  Join a team of superheroes, one can dream I suppose.

On a less cinematic note June for the ARPCA has a number of great activities.  We are now a little over a month from the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (more info here.) It might be time to bust out the wax and detailing tools if you plan to show off your shining example of fine German engineering in Schenley Park.

Hope to see you out there!
