Finally, Porsche Puebla did its presentation of the new Porsche 997. Despite being about a month late I was very excited to have the new Porsche 997 at our HOME dealer.
The new Porsche 997 marks off the very first Porsche model change for the Mexican Market. Porsche de Mexico officially started in late 2000 adding the current Porsche lineup of the time, the 986 Boxster and 996 911. Later on the 955 Cayenne was added. Nonetheless the Mexican public never witnessed a Porsche model change despite the Henkel/BMW fiasco carrying 993 and later on the very first 996's. So this indeed was a very special occasion.
Porsche Puebla throwed a very nice party at dealer grounds where IPOC members, selected customers and media alike, enjoyed wine, gourmet food and of course, the new Porsche 997.
Lets take a look at how the event went...
