Detailed information

For 70 years, the name Porsche has been synonymous with top-quality sports car construction. The brand is considered to have been born on June 8, 1948, the day on which the very first Porsche car – the 356 “No. 1” Roadster – was officially approved as roadworthy. Porsche began series production on its first sports car in the same year, and only two years later had increased its annual capacity to 250 vehicles. Ten years further down the line, and this figure had risen to 8,500 vehicles. Today, more than 246,000 vehicles roll of the assembly line at Porsche per year, continuing the company’s incredible success story.

This is a trajectory like no other in the automotive sector, and would not have been possible without the passion and loyalty of Porsche customers – in particular of members of the global Porsche Club. Counting over 200,000 members in more than 675 officially recognized Porsche Clubs across some 85 countries, the Porsche Club was originally born out of the enthusiasm of just seven Porsche drivers, who in 1952 founded the first Porsche Club in Hohensyburg.

With a view to bringing together this global community and allowing its members to share their passion for the Porsche brand, the Porsche Parade Europe was launched in 1990. The first event of its kind was held in Brighton, England. Since then, the event has taken place every two years, always hosted by one of the European Porsche Clubs. A wonderful tradition from time to time.

Time also matters most at Porsche Design: founded back in 1972 by Prof. F.A. Porsche – the inventor of the iconic 911 – timepieces have built the brands core linking it with the fascination of technology, precision and performance of sports cars. Porsche Design today is not only a fully owned Porsche subsidiary but also became watch manufacturer in 2014 by founding its own site for engineering and production of high end timepieces in Switzerland. Porsche Design Timepieces is going to support Porsche Parade Europe 2018 by a sponsorship.

To celebrate this year’s occasion Porsche Design Timepieces has developed a highly exclusive watch: Chronotimer Porsche Parade 2018 ltd.ed., a high-end mechanical Chronograph featuring main graphic elements of 2018 Porsche Parade Europe to perfectly remember the unique event.
