Porsche Rolls Off the 10,000th Panamera!

10,000th Panamera leaves the Leipzig plant

Everyday we are seeing an ever increasing volume of customers dropping in to the Beverly Hills Porsche showroom asking to see the all new Porsche Panamera. Reactions are mixed but one fact remains. The Panamera is a real hit with the LA movers and shakers. We are selling all models at a record pace. Porsche dealers worldwide are seeing a lot of fantastic response to the Panamera in the form of orders.

Today, just three months after the new Panamera went on sale in Germany and just two months on the market in the USA the 10,000th car rolled off the production line at the Leipzig plant of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart. The 500 HP platinum silver metallic Panamera Turbo will be delivered to a customer in Singapore.

Michael Macht, Chairman of the Board of Porsche AG: "Sales of the Panamera have really taken off: we have already secured over 9,000 orders. Shortly after it was launched our Gran Turismo won the coveted "Goldenes Lenkrad" ["Golden steering wheel"] and "Auto Trophy" awards in Germany. It has also won many international prizes." The Panamera 4S is proving particularly popular and has a share of 44 per cent - putting it ahead of the Turbo (36 per cent) and the Panamera S (20 per cent).

The company plans to build 20,000 Panamera per year across the whole product cycle. The fourth Porsche model series is being manufactured at the Leipzig plant in the so-called model mix, sharing a production line with the Cayenne SUV. The innovative, highly streamlined production is seen as a model of technological and economic excellence for the automobile industry worldwide.

Happy 80th Birthday Hans Mezger!

Porsche's go fast guy, Hans Mezger.

Beverly Hills Porsche
and Porsche race fans everywhere would like to join in wishing Happy Birthday to Hans Mezger!

The former race and development engineer at Porsche AG, Hans Mezger, will be celebrating his 80th birthday today, November 18, 2009. On the subject of this celebration, Porsche development chairman Wolfgang Dürheimer said, “Hans Mezger is one of the most important engineers in our company’s history. For four decades, our racing cars won with engines designed by Hans Mezger and made the Porsche name a synonym for sports performance around the world.”

Hans Mezger was born on November 18, 1929 in Besigheim, Swabia. After graduating from high school and studying machine design, he started at Porsche in 1956, working on engine development. The first of a long series of racing engines designed by him was the 1.5 liter eight cylinder engine used in the Porsche 804 Formula 1 racing car, in which Dan Gurney won the French Grand Prix in 1962. Over the next decade, Hans Mezger’s work ranged from the design of the legendary six cylinder boxer engine for the Porsche 911 to the development of the legendary Porsche turbo engines used in both production and racing cars. One particular highpoint was the air-cooled twelve cylinder engine for the Porsche 917, which produced up to 1,200 horsepower in the 1973 CanAm version.

After developing so many successful racing cars, such as the Porsche 935, 936 and 956/962 models, Hans Mezger dedicated himself in the early 1980s to one particular customer commission: he designed the “TAG-Turbo made by Porsche” for the British racing team McLaren – a Formula 1 engine that produced up to 1,000 horsepower from a capacity of just 1.5 liters. From 1984 to 1986, the engine produced at the Porsche development center in Weissach dominated the elite class of motorsport and consequently landed three Formula 1 world championship titles.

After more than 40 years at Porsche, Hans Mezger retired in 1994. However, he retained close links with the Porsche brand. He still owns a Porsche 911 Carrera and is always a very welcome guest at the new Porsche Museum. When Hans Mezger visits the racing cars and engines he designed which are exhibited there, history comes alive once more.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 Profiles & Interviews One of Our Own

Pictured (center) Jay Huffschmidt of Beverly Hills Porsche

By Profiles & Interviews

Imagine waking up every morning, heading off to work and being greeted by the latest and newest of what Porsche has to offer! That’s what Jay Huffschmidt of Beverly Hills Porsche faces everyday! –Hang around the Porsche GT3 and take Brad Pitt around in it (that really didnt happen, or did it..?) Porsche and Hollywood Glam! Thats a great combo! Jay of Beverly Hills Porsche takes a moment to sit down and tell us about his Porsche Heritage!

PH: The press reception in the past 6 months over the Porsche Panamera, can only be best described as “MIXED”! Many complained about the front engine lay out, but mostly about the rear-end design. What has been the reception and feedback you have received?

JH: The Panamera is definitely getting a lot of attention right now. Mostly form sedan owners of competing makes. We’ve had more than our share of Bentley GT, S Class and 750iL customers but the Masarati QP owners seem to be the most receptive to the car. I like to compare the Maserati to an exotic Super Model, she’s beautiful, sounds and feels amazing but some days she just doesn’t want to get out of bed and she’ll take you for every last dollar in your wallet. However at the end of the day she makes you feel like a million dollars.

Now the Panamera is the Heidi Klum of Super Cars. Heidi is arguably one of the most beautiful, talented, versatile, hardest working models on the planet. She works on several TV programs, appears on the most prestigious runways, she’s delivered four children and still has a ripping hot figure. She is the epitome of German reliability with international appeal. Just like Heidi, the Panamera will make you feel like she’s worth the million dollars and deliver uncompromised performances over and over again. Plus it doesn’t hurt that she can “Auf” just about any other sedan on the road.

PH: How long have you been working at “Beverly Hills Porsche”?

JH: I joined Beverly Hills Porsche in August 2009 after leaving a Porsche, Audi, Ferrari and Maserati dealer.
PH: How did you get into it?

JH: Many of my friends have moved over to Beverly Hills Porsche during the last few years.

PH: Please tell us a little bit about a unique job as working with Porsches and Working in Beverly Hills? Lots of Celebs? (Everyone is

JH: Beverly Hills has always been known as the playground of the rich and famous. It widely considered to be one of the most famous shopping destinations in the world. Yes, we get plenty of celebrities but we also get lots of business leaders and old money types. We have a policy of not
disclosing who are customers are but if you watch enough tabloid TV you’ll see plenty of our Beverly Hills Porsche plate frames. In fact last night on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing we got loads of screen time as one of the stars drove his black 911 Tagra around to client meetings. Truthfully I stopped being star struck years ago although a certain female talk show host and her girlfriend sure brought the showroom to a halt when they dropped in to pick out their new C4S.

PH: Whats your Daily Driver?

JH: I just turned in my leased Audi A4 2.0T and pulled my 2000 SLK 32 AMG out of storage.

PH: When was the first time you saw a Porsche or experienced?

JH: In high school I started a car detailing service with one important feature; I only took on clients that required pick up and delivery of their
vehicle. Ingenious! I found a way to drive all of my fantasy cars for free. All I had to do was take them home, wash and wax them to showroom perfection and take them back a few hours later. To top it off, I got paid.

Arguably the hottest girl in my hometown was Tasha H. and she drove a 911 SC Targa! Every week I’d drive to the beauty salon she worked at to pick up her car. Several hours later that red over black Targa would shine like it had just rolled off the line in Stuttgart. Soon every client of her salon knew my name and admired my work. Thankfully Tasha’s clients had money and the drove hot cars. When her boyfriend bought a ‘85 911 Turbo with a massive “whale tail” I though I’d died and gone to teenage heaven.

PH: What was your first Porsche?

JH: Many years later I bought a red over tan 1985 911 SC Targa similar to

PH: How many Porsches have you owned?
JH: Just the one.
PH: Why did you get rid of it?

JH: Sadly I had to give up the 911 when I moved away to take a job with Cadillac.

PH: What would be your next Porsche?

JH: I have my sights set on a Cayman S. We have a 2008 Cayman S Sport in GT3 green on the showroom floor that I’m almost talked into but really want a PDK

PH: What are your favorite bookmarks and links?

JH: of course.

PH: Do you work on your Porsche? To what extent? Change Oil?
JH: I never work on my own car outside of detailing. I’m really good at making friends with qualified mechanics but I can’t stand anyone else messing with the paint and leather.
PH: What is your most fondest/vivid memory of your Porsche? Was it a road trip?

JH: I always enjoyed how owners of other makes thought it was necessary to try and race me or grab my attention at lights, revving engines or giving the nod. Everybody seemed they have something to prove, except me. It gave me a strange sense of satisfaction letting them burn out while I took my time climbing the gears. The greatest thrill for me was when it was just me, “Red” and a twisty back road.

PH: Do you belong to a club? Do you guys have weekly coffee meetups?

JH: Right now I go to several meet-ups. Sometimes I take the new models, sometimes I take a trade in. Most of the events I go to I’m repping the company so I have to be on my best behavior. I try and make the Festival of Speed every year in Fontana.

PH: Would you like to give a shout out to anyone? Guys that helped
you out, etc..? (Show them some ‘love’ and appreciation)

JH: I just want to thank all of my customers that have stayed loyal. I’ve always tried to keep my customers close and not refer to them as clients but as friends. I have a habit of introducing them to each other by saying, “Hey this is my friend …. He has a GT3 like yours.”

PH: What is your dream Porsche? Something that you’ll never let go, my dream Porsche is the 904/GTS.

JH: My given name is Jerome just like Jerome “Jerry” Seinfeld. My dream is to someday have a collection that would rival his. I know it’s only a dream but this is Beverly Hills where dreams can and often do come true. God that sounds cheesy but that’s my dream.

A New Lighter, Faster Boxster Coming to Beverly Hills

Light, Efficient, Open: Boxster Spyder Making World Debut in Los Angeles

Update June 1, 2010: NOW IN STOCK the 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder!

Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is introducing a new top version of the Porsche Boxster, a light mid-engined roadster making its world debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show this December.

Significantly less weight than the Boxster S, a lower center of gravity and an all-new sports suspension give the Boxster Spyder the right kind of driving dynamics clearly reflecting the unique look of the car.

The Boxster Spyder features a 3.4-liter six-cylinder with Direct Fuel Injection upfront of the rear axle. Maximum output is 320 bhp, 10 bhp more than in the Boxster S.

Equipped with PDK Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe and the Sports Chrono Package, the new Spyder, using Launch Control, accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. Again with optional PDK, fuel consumption is a mere 30.4 mpg. Top speed, in turn, is 166 mph - with the roof open.

n terms of its fundamental concept, the entire Boxster family is the successor to the legendary 550 Spyder built back in 1953, both models sharing the same mid-engine roadster concept, low weight, back-to-the-roots lifestyle, and supreme agility com-bined with equally outstanding driving pleasure.

The 550 Spyder was the first sports car from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen developed specifically for racing but also homologated for the road. In the years following its production, this unique Spyder weighing only 1,213 lb, scored numerous victories on race circuits and in the road races so popular at the time.

The 550 Spyder was followed by other extremely successful Porsche Spyders such as the 718 RS 60 in 1960.

In 2004 and 2008 Porsche dedicated a limited edition of special Boxsters bearing the additional name Spyder to these legendary racing cars. By contrast, the new Boxster Spyder is a regular, specially developed and upgraded production model with far-reaching modifications versus the Boxster and Boxster S.

Market introduction of the new Porsche Boxster Spyder will start worldwide in February 2010.

The Clock Market, A Good Time to Buy a Porsche

Beverly Hills Porsche at Night
It’s been said that Los Angeles was built around the automobile. Arguably the city’s architecture has evolved along with the car culture. In 1928 architects C.W. Wilson + Sons were commissioned to create a market place specifically designed to attract and accommodate Los Angeles’ motoring public. The Clock Market, named for the large clock tower, was designed to be a multi vendor shopping center with plenty of off street parking. The L-shaped structure once housed a mom-and-pop dry goods market and covered open air produce booths. The center also included a unique feature, a second floor nine room apartment designed for the proprietor’s family. The Clock Market is widely considered the areas first “strip mall”, a neighborhood shopping center design that would eventually become a regular theme in Los Angeles architecture.

The Clock Market on Wilshire (cir: 1931)

Inside the Clock Market (cir:1929)

It seem only fitting that this last remaining example of a Wilshire drive-up market serves as our home, Beverly Hills Porsche.

While most of the Porsche dealerships around the world convert to the new look of smooth stainless steel and black slate Beverly Hills Porsche remains comfortably housed it this historic abode. We are extremely lucky to be stewards of this rich piece of Los Angeles history.

Someone Parked a Porsche in the Kitchen.

Poggenpohl presents first Porsche Design kitchen

Porsche Design Group and Poggenpohl present their first co-designed kitchen the P’7340 Kitchen for Men. The new Porsche Design kitchen has a super sleek minimalist style that Dan Neil of the LA Times refers to as “cool, nocturnal and sinister”. The kitchen is distinguished for its innovative framework, purist styling and high-quality materials. Kitchen appliances maker Miele has been selected as the exclusive supplier of all fitted electric appliances.

Back in October 2005, Porsche Design and Poggenpohl signed a co-operation agreement for the purpose. Says Roland Heiler, Managing Director of the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See: “Our studio already disposed of long-standing experience in designing kitchen and home appliances as well as furniture. In Poggenpohl we have found a partner capable of implementing our idea of what a modern kitchen should look like.”

With their new kitchen, both companies intend to live up to the trend that shows an increasing number of men displaying an interest in ‘kitchen and cuisine’. “In recent years, kitchens have turned into event and representation areas frequently equipped with audio systems”, explains Elmar Duffner, Managing Director of
Poggenpohl. “Our co-operation with Porsche Design enabled us to design a kitchen whose sleek and functional design language specifically addresses male customers.”

The new kitchen is now on display as a show kitchen and sold in Poggenpohl studios around the world including the Poggenpohl showroom located in West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center. For more information visit their web site: PoggenPohl Porsche Design Kitchen P7340

Refreshments will be provided by: Kitchen 12000 and Tequila Revolucion

Valet Parking:
Enter garage on Hamilton Dr.

8423 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA 90211
(310) 557-2472

The Panamera represents a revolution in automotive design and thinking therefore Beverly Hills Porsche thought it appropriate to partner with Kitchen12000 and Tequila Revolucion for this very special night.

Kitchen12000, A food Revolution

Now the word revolution is quite epic, and we know that. But there really is no better word or phrase to describe the motive behind our cause at Kitchen12000.

Finding joy from feeding people is a dying trend, and has been ever since the commercialization of food institutions. Modern society has made it easy to survive without ever having to cook a meal, and there you have it; people are taking the easy route once again.

So instead of spectating, we’ve decided to help spark a change in culinary capitalization by adding some fun to the process. Hoping to instigate appreciation, creativity and collaboration to the food industry while promoting good health to the general population.

Tequila Revolucion
, The Civilized Tequila for an Uncivilized World

Tequila Revolución starts with hand selected AGAVES Aged 8 – 10 years to perfection, with the pencas slashed to reveal the exquisite piñas; these piñas are carefully sliced then slowly roasted in brick ovens from 17 – 24 hrs. The baked piñas of Tequila Revolucion is then mashed, shredded and allowed to naturally ferment prior to the careful double distillation process that takes place in (stainless steel) pot stills, creating the smoothest most balanced tequila possible. Our pure 100% agave tequilas are then estate bottled to ensure consistency from start to finish.

Tequila Revolucion Silver provides the pure essence of smoked agave to its clean smooth finish.

Tequila Revolucion Reposado is Barrel aged for 9 months in previously used Tequila casks, much longer than the government minimum of 2 months, to arrive at the perfect balance between a buttery cinnamon flavor and smoothness with an exquisite peppery aftertaste.

Tequila RevoluciÓn Añejo is barrel aged for 18 - 24 months, twice the legal minimum, producing ultra smooth tequila where the influence of the wood imparts the aromas that span the perfect balance of caramel, vanilla and honey with the earthy spiciness of our unique agave!

We thank our partners and hope to see you on October 15th. Viva Panamera!

What is Alcantara and How Do I Clean It?

Alcantara Trim on Porsche GT3
For the past few years Porsche has offered Alcantara as an upgraded seating surface, steering wheel covering and headliner material but many people do not know what Alcantara really is.

The appearance and tactile feel of the material is similar to that of suede, and it may be incorrectly identified as such, or as "Alcantara leather", on occasion. The truth is, Alcantara is a composite material composed of 68% polyester and 32% polyurethane. It is this mixture of materials that gives Alcantara its increased durability and stain resistance. There are currently three versions of Alcantara available: cover (made for seating surfaces); panel (made for door/dash applications); and soft (made for headliners).

The material was developed in the 1970s by Miyoshi Okamoto, a scientist working for the Japanese chemical company Toray. In 1972, a joint venture between Italian chemical company ENI and Toray formed Alcantara SpA in order to manufacture and distribute the material.
Alcantara has the luxurious look and feel of fine Italian lamb suede. It is soft to the touch and makes a beautiful compliment to leathers used by Porsche. When used as seat covering inserts the Alcantara provides a unique "grip" when making tight cornering maneuvers.
Care and maintenance for Alcantara is quite simple.
Daily cleaning
It is sufficient to dust Alcantara using a soft brush, a dry cloth, or a vacuum cleaner.
Weekly cleaning
After having dusted Alcantara, run a slightly moistened white cotton cloth over it. Avoid the use of printed absorbent cloths/papers as they can release ink onto the material.
Yearly cleaning
Dust the material with care; moisten a soft cloth or a sponge in clean water, wring it thoroughly and run it over the whole Alcantara material, making sure not to wet it excessively; rinse the cloth or sponge and repeat as necessary. Leave to dry (overnight). Once dried, in order to restore the material, brush it delicately with a soft bristle brush.
General instructions for stains removal
In the case of localized stains, and when the specific products for the cleaning of Alcantara are not available, (a list of such products is available on the web-site, the upholstery can be cleaned as follows:

  • Act immediately (within 30 minutes) and begin treating the stain from the outside edge into the center in order to avoid the stain spreading.
  • Never pour a cleaning product directly onto Alcantara.
  • Before removing the stain, remove any of the substance that has fallen on the upholstery: if it’s thick (yogurt, jam, etc.) use a spoon or a plastic spatula; for liquids, use non printed absorbent paper or a sponge.
  • Avoid rubbing to prevent the stain from spreading or going deep into the material.
  • Use a white cloth or a well wrung sponge for the removal of the stains.
  • If you use a sponge, rinse it in clean water and wring it well between each wipe.
For the specific treatment of the different types of stains and the relative materials that should be used, follow the instructions listed on Alcantara's web site. Care Instructions PDF

Beverly Hills Porsche stocks a variety of Porsche cars and SUVs fitted with Alcantara interiors. We invite you to visit our showroom and experience this versatile an luxurious material for yourself.

Ferry Porsche's 100th Birthday

The Management and Staff of Beverly Hills Porsche take a day to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche also know as Ferry Porsche.

The successful story of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, would be inconceivable without the lifetime achievement of Ferry Porsche. For it was under his guidance that the engineering office established by his father Ferdinand Porsche became an independent car manufacturer presenting the first sports car to bear the name Porsche in 1948 – Porsche Type 356.

“At the beginning I looked around, but I could not find the car I was dreaming of. So I decided to build it myself.” Building the first Porsche 356 and, later, the Porsche 911, Ferry Porsche consistently lived out his dream of “driving in its most beautiful form”.

With a precise feeling for each and every detail, he set the foundation for the Porsche. As the Managing Director and Chairman of the Supervisory Board he shaped the destiny of the Porsche Company for five long decades. In particular, it was his achievement as a visionary and an outstanding entrepreneur to make Porsche the world’s leading manufacturer of sports cars.

When Ferry Porsche passed away on 27 March 1998 – the same year the last air-cooled 911 left the production line – he left the world as one of the last great automobile men. His lifetime of achievement earned a him a position in the European Automotive Hall of Fame. “If you manage to create something that withstands time,” he once said, referring to the design of the company’s sports cars, “something that remains untouched by the eccentricities of a particular age – something timeless, in other words – that is the greatest achievement.”

On 19 September 2009 Ferry Porsche would be celebrating his 100th birthday. Among other notable activities, the Porsche Museum will be releasing a new book, Ferry Porsche 100 Years to mark the occasion.

Beverly Hills Porsche #1 In the USA!

Beverly Hills Porsche Number One in Sales for August 2009

It’s only been a couple of months since Rick Nanas took over the reigns as General Sales Manager at Beverly Hills Porsche and already they’ve grabbed the sales volume title. Beverly Hills sold more new cars for the month of August than any other Porsche dealer in the country. Rick has challenged his staff to do it again in September.
Rick’s take on the sudden spike in sales, “There’s been a lot of pent up buyer frustration over the last few months and we finally found the pressure release valve.” When economy blues meet endless days of sunshine in one of America’s most recognized shopping destinations something’s gotta give. Rick continues, “People still come to Beverly Hills with shopping and buying on the brain. We’ve just enlightened them to the fact that driving a new Porsche can be one of the best forms of ‘retail therapy’. For some of our clients it’s not really a financial decision, it’s more of state of mind. They somehow think they need to participate in the lagging economy by cutting back and denying themselves. We help them get over that during the test drive.”
Thanks to the Cash for Clunkers program, the automotive industry’s entry and mid priced car lines have seen a bit of relief. But the real question is what’s in store for the high line market? A new Porsche client said he was finally ready to take the plunge when he started to notice new cars appearing in the employee parking lot of his Downtown Los Angeles business. Will that be enough for others in the high end market to justify showing up to the office in a new car too? Who’s to say but one thing is apparent, ten plus years of reward based spending habits just don’t change over night. The successful still want to reward them selves for a job well done and there are plenty of great deals out there.

Porsche Panamera is coming to Beverly Hills Porsche

The revolutionary 2010 Porsche Panamera is coming to Beverly Hills Porsche this October!

The Panamera is an amazing four door Gran Turismo that elicits million dollar quotes from those fortunate enough to have driven it. In a recent video test drive by, Senior Road Test Editor, Josh Jacquat can be heard saying, “Man this thing rips!” just as he punches the throttle of the 500bhp twin turbo V8 version in an Autobahn passing maneuver.

It seems clear that once you’ve driven the Porsche Panamera you’re sold.

Even Robby Naish 24-time world champion and wind-surfing legend extraordinaire was blown away by the Panamera in his recent trip to the Porsche research and development center in Weissach. On the test grounds, Naish made a few swift rounds accompanied by Porsche engineers. Of course, his visit also dealt with the topic of wind surfing and aerodynamics: In the development center, Naish discussed the possibilities of improving surfboards and sails by means of trials in the wind tunnel but the conversations kept coming back around to, you guessed it, the Panamera!

Initially, all Panameras will be available with two V8 engine options, standard seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch transmissions and rear- or all-wheel drive. All engines feature Porsche Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) for highest efficiency. For additional fuel savings, all Panameras include an engine stop-start function that can turn off and restart the engine at certain times, like when stopped at an intersection or in traffic.

The rear-wheel drive Panamera S has a 400-horsepower, 4.8-liter V8 engine that can propel it from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds on its way to a top test track speed of 175 mph. The manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) is $89,800. The all-wheel drive Panamera 4S receives the same 4.8-liter power plant. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, achieves a top test track speed of 175 mph, and has an MSRP of $93,800.

At the top of the Panamera lineup is the Panamera Turbo with its 500-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8. Also featuring the new PDK transmission, the all-wheel drive Panamera Turbo sets a breathtaking 0-to-60 time of 4 seconds flat and a top test-track speed of 188 mph. The Panamera Turbo has an MSRP of $132,600, and all three Panamera models will go on sale in Los Angeles at Beverly Hills Porsche this October.
