    OT: but factory tour related

    I may be heading to the UK and Germany at the end of May/ beginning of June. While I'm in Germany I'll be going to Hannover, Nurnberg, and Nurburgring. Which of these are closest to Stuttgart? Do I need to make reservations to go on the Porsche factory tour?
    Thanks....

    Re: OT: but factory tour related

    JP66,

    Nurburgring is approx 200 miles N/W of Stuttgart; Hannover is about 340 miles north of Stuttgart.

    While in Stuttgart several years ago, I was told you need reservations for the factory tour- I believe at least several months. I would check with your dealership for contact info...


    Re: OT: but factory tour related

    I rolled in and got a tour the next day. We got lucky. Make a reservation and you won't be disappointed.

    Re: OT: but factory tour related

    Nurnberg is closest (about 130 miles east of Stuttgart - less than 2h drive). If you take the plane from Hannover to Stuttgart and then the S-Bahn to Neuwirtshaus/Porscheplatz you are almost as fast as from Nurnberg by car.
    You need to make reservations for the factory tour. If you are booking just a few days before, they are very likely increasing the number of tour members for a tour to squeeze you in, like they did in my case. So, it's better to book early and hope that others do the same

    Re: OT: but factory tour related

    So exactly what is the differnce between the factory tour and the tour that Porsche offers through the Travel Club?

    Re: OT: but factory tour related

    I think that they have different tours, somthing like regular and delux.
    Last June I went on a Treffen tour that was sponsored by the PCA. It was in depth and included the engine assembly, assembly line, and as well the leather shop (not on regular tours) and lunch in he Casino, went across the street and toured Werk1 (exclusive and resteration shop).
    Also included was a visit to Weissach and received "Hot Laps" in 996 Turbo. 987 Boxster and 997S
    Very very Cool!!
