Porsche Experience Center: Drive or Eat?

This is a Porsche Panamera GTS on the low-friction surface of the 1.6-mile track that’s on the grounds of the $100-million Porsche Experience Center: The Experience Center, which is on 27.7-acres hard on the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, includes the track (there are 77 cars that can be driven; you can look into booking one via www.porschedriving.com), Porsche Cars North America headquarters, a technical training center, classic car restoration center, vehicle gallery, a business center where rooms can be rented, and more.

The Experience Center, which is on 27.7-acres hard on the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, includes the track (there are 77 cars that can be driven; you can look into booking one via www.porschedriving.com), Porsche Cars North America headquarters, a technical training center, classic car restoration center, vehicle gallery, a business center where rooms can be rented, and more.

The company expects some 30,000 people to visit the site on an annual basis.

Of course, Porsche being, well, Porsche, the latest addition to the complex—which opened in May—is Restaurant 356, about which Andre Oosthuizen, vice president of marketing for Porsche Cars North America says, "At Restaurant 356, our guests will enjoy elegant dishes that honor Atlanta's global flavors, while culminating a unique Porsche experience."

The restaurant overlooks the track.

Here’s betting that when someone considers booking a table at Restaurant 356 or track time with a 911 Turbo, chances are it will be the latter, not the former.
