Default Former Atlanta Taurus Assembly Plant, Repurposed

Plans are in motion...Porsche was smart to pick up the track of land. E-Z rail access. Right next to the interstate, right near the Atlanta airport.

Anyways.

Even with the factory gone, good to see the land repurposed, cleaned up and reused in a good manner...
Porsche finally breaks ground on new HQ in Georgia

They also renamed the street...
Reader Update: Work finally progressing on Porsche's new HQ near Atlanta
lol @ typist of sign not knowing roman numerals. 11 !=II

Porsche may have a test track...but it was still fun flying across the former plant parking lot in our cars back in the late 2000s. SHOs roaring away

downhill is on a distinguished road

My 2003SE was born in Atlanta and sold as a fleet vehicle in the area.
I bought it from the 3rd owner after he had it for 3 days and hit a deer.
It has the Atlanta sticker and the options that were different from the Chicago plant~~
My first car was a Porche 1959 Super Coupe 356A
