Porsche to build new US headquarters in Atlanta
The new Porsche NA headquarters will be built in the “Aerotropolis Atlanta” site, which lies near the newest terminal at the massive Atlanta airport. Ground breaking is set to begin this fall and the company plans to move into their new digs during the second half of 2013. Once the various divisions have moved into the new facility, the site will employee over 400 corporate Porsche employees including a Technical Service and Training Center and the incredible new Customer Experience Center. This unique Customer Experience Center will offer a road course (a similar setup to what is found in their facility in Silverstone, England) to allow owners the chance to experience the capabilities of their Porsche in the safety of a closed circuit.
The current Porsche North American Headquarters are located in the Atlanta area, technically in Sandy Springs – a northern suburb of Atlanta just outside of the 285 beltway. The Porsche Business Services and Porsche Financial Services are currently operating out of Lisle, Illinois so while some of those employees may relocate to the Atlanta area to work at the new facility, the new HQ could also bring new jobs to the area.
