Only the 10th in the world and 3rd of its kind in North America after Atlanta and Los Angeles, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. inaugurated its first Porsche Experience Center (PEC) in Toronto.

Slated to open by 2024, the future ‘Porsche Experience Centre Toronto’ is located on a 20-acre site at the ‘Durham Live’ development in Pickering, Ontario.

The PEC Toronto will feature more than 400,000 square feet of retail space, a casino, a concert hall and a luxury hotel with more than 300 rooms in the future.

Porsche AG’s member of the executive board for sales and marketing, Detlev von Platen, remarked, “Porsche is more than just a car. Porsche is a promise for a unique brand and product experience, and since the first opening in Silverstone in 2008, our Porsche Experience Centers are the best way to get this promise. Nowhere else in the automotive industry, the soul of our sportscars can be lived that way. I couldn’t be happier that we can now announce the 10th location of its kind in Toronto, the fastest-growing city in North America with an ever-greater community of Porsche fans.”

To paint a picture, the first ‘urban’ version of the worldwide concept, the PEC Toronto, will be a brand park and major tourist destination. 

There, visitors can experience the Porsche sports cars’ vehicle dynamics, technology, and emotion first-hand with expert guidance from instructors through various driving modules.

This domestic and international tourist destination will include a driving circuit over 2 km in length to highlight the prowess of the two and four-door sports cars in their ideal playground. 

Moreover, visitors will also be able to admire current and historic exhibition vehicles, stop by the cafe, and browse the Porsche shop.

Notably, aligned with Porsche’s global commitment to decarbonise the entire value chain of its vehicles, electric vehicle charging infrastructure will be incorporated in the Experience Centre’s plan.

Thus, great emphasis is being placed on using the most environmentally responsible layout for the design, build, and operation.

As such, the HOK, a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm, is designing the building and incorporating innovative technologies focused on sustainability. 

In short, all Porsche Experience Centers are a unique concept in the automotive industry and offer Porsche fans and customers exciting experiences with the sports car brand and its products.

That said, it allows customers and fans to immerse themselves in the world of the brand regardless of whether they own a Porsche or not.
