In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Porsche brand and Porsche Club Singapore's 30th anniversary, Porsche held a special charity gala dinner at the Shangri-la Hotel Singapore for over 300 guests, including Porsche customers, Porsche Club Singapore members, and members of the media. Aligned with the global anniversary theme of “Sportscar Together”, Porsche believes that customers, fans, and employees are brought together by their love for sports cars – the driving force behind the success of the brand. Over seven decades, Porsche has been uniting sports car enthusiasts, customers, and employees, fuelled by valuable and exciting moments that have been shared with others around the world.
Henrik Dreier, General Manager – Singapore, Porsche Asia Pacific said, “Tonight is a celebration of 70 years of the Porsche brand. The first sports car to bear the Porsche name, the 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster, was registered exactly 70 years ago today. Since then, Porsche has further developed
into a world-leading and innovative manufacturer of sports cars that combines tradition and innovation, performance and everyday usability, design and functionality, as well as exclusivity and social acceptance. Be it on the race track or on the road, in the passenger seat or behind the wheel, every single one of our Porsche models represents a piece of motoring history and a statement for the future.”
