Porsche Experience Center
LA loves to drive, but not like this… Those grinding traffic jams will be a distant memory once you’ve sampled the adrenaline-pumping Porsche Experience Center. Combining German engineering with Californian lifestyle, the company has been designing fabulously fast cars for over 65 years.
Just select the streamlined model of your dreams and hit this four-mile track for 90 minutes with personalised input from a Porsche Drive Coach. Eight different modules replicate everyday and more challenging driving, mimicking a country road with tricky twists and turns, slopes, wet and off-road conditions. Porsche’s latest marks are up for grabs, so you can test their powers, responsiveness and handling. Whether you’re keen to try out different Porsche cars, hone your driving skills or simply accelerate in a sporty number, you’ll be channelling your inner Mark Webber in no time!
Let The Force Slide You from 1 April 2017 when the new g-Force programme will be sliding out. It’s a steering wheel-gripping chance to discover what “turning into the skid” really means. State-of-the-art driving simulators and a merchandise store (handy for scoring that natty jacket, watch or bag) add to the fun.
Finish with lunch at awesome new in-house fine-diner Restaurant 917, which offers jaw-dropping views over the track. The Speedster Café, steps from the action, serves breakfast and lighter bites. Whoosh!
