70th Anniversary of Porsche Clubs

24/5/2022

Today, there are over 700 Porsche Clubs worldwide with more than 240,000 members in 86 different countries. 

Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG says “The Porsche Clubs preserve the legend of our brand" and reflected "Porsche would not be Porsche without the global community of friends and fans who come together to share their passion for our brand”.

On 26 May 1952, 70 years ago, the first Porsche Club was founded. Two years after the brand's first sportscar was revealed in Germany, the Porsche Club Westfalen (orginally named Westfälischer Porsche Club Hohensyburg) was established as the result of a group of Porsche customers joining together to celebrate Porsche.

Porsche Club Great Britain is the 2nd largest Porsche Club in the world with 22,000 members, behind Porsche Club of America with 145,000 members.

"We are delighted to be able to celebrate this special anniversary.” says Platen of the monumental 70th anniversary.
