Porsche Cars North America, Inc.

Atlanta, GA 30354 USA

Porsche has a long history in U.S. with the first model being imported to New York in 1950. With success, came the need for a wholly owned susidary; thus PCNA (Porsche Cars North America, Inc.) was formed in January 1984 and began operation on September 1, 1984. PCNA also assumed distribution operations for Canada on January 1, 1995. In early 2008, Porsche created Porsche Cars Canada as an independent importer of automobiles, parts and accessories through its 12 Canadian dealers. As a separate subsidiary with dedicated leadership, Porsche Cars Canada has market and financial accountability as an importer and reports directly to Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany

Porsche Automobil Holding SE

Porsche Automobil Holding SE was founded on June 26, 2007 at the annual general meeting of Porsche AG, with a unanimous vote of the shareholders. At the time, the objective was to spin off the operative automobile business as a wholly owned subsidiary and to create the holding company as a business unit responsible for managing equity investments.

Today, Porsche Automobil Holding SE manages its stake in Porsche Zwischenholding GmbH (50.1%), which in turn holds 100% of Porsche AG, as well as the stake in Volkswagen AG (50.7%).

The Porsche Automobile Holding SE is responsible for the stock of the operating subsidiary, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, and for the investments in Volkswagen AG. With the new structure, Porsche ensures that the autonomy and independence of the traditional Stuttgart-based company remain fully protected. This is the main purpose of separating holding and operating activities. At the same time, the holding also represents a single company responsible for the management of stock.

The Porsche's Extraordinary General Meeting on June 26, 2007 was the starting point for the Porsche Automobil Holding SE. Shareholders of the Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG voted unanimously in favor of the operating activities of Porsche AG becoming the responsibility of a hundred percent subsidiary in accordance with the provisions of the Transformation Act, of adopting a controlling and profit transfer agreement between the holding company and the operating subsidiary, and also of transforming the holding company into a European Company, a so-called Societas Europaea (SE). The name 'Porsche Automobil Holding' was also unanimously approved. The company's headquarters is in Stuttgart.

The decision to transform the company into an SE follows on from the fact that this is a modern form of company with an international focus, which will provide the prerequisites for the ongoing development of the Porsche Group. The supra-national legal status of an SE not only requires the creation of an open and international corporate culture, but also offers the opportunity to keep a Supervisory Board with twelve members, which thus far has proven to be an ideal number.

The SE was inscribed in the trade register on November 13, 2007. This required a draft final balance report from Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG for July 31, 2007, which was finalized by the Supervisory Board the day before the registration. From a legal point of view, Porsche Automobil Holding SE and the former Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG are one and the same legal entity. This means the change in corporate form to become an SE entailed no transfer of assets and liabilities. Nevertheless, the company received a new registration number with the Stuttgart District Court when it became a SE. All shareholders of the former Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG became shareholders in Porsche Automobil Holding SE after the change in corporate form.

Porsche Motorsports

Porsche can claim more than 30,000 race victories in almost every motor sports series worldwide, and while many of these successes have been achieved with immensely powerful specialist race cars like the evocative 917 and 956, the iconic 911 sports coupe is the bedrock on which the peerless racing reputation of the Stuttgart marque has been built.

The 911 demonstrates perfectly the Porsche philosophy of not only building sports cars in order to win races, but also to gain development know-how that can be incorporated into the evolution of its road cars. Successive generations of the rear-engined 911 have been honed on the race circuit since its debut in 1963, with customers benefitting from continuous improvements in key dynamic areas such as engine performance, braking and aerodynamics.

Porsche is the world's largest manufacturer of racing cars; the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car competes in the Mobil1 Supercup, the world's fastest international one-make Championship, which supports Formula One Grands Prix. The 911 GT3 Cup also entertains spectators around the world racing in the many domestic Carrera Cup Championships in Germany, Asia, France, Italy, Japan, Scandinavia and Great Britain. The all-new GT3 R is the first step for drivers moving up to GT racing, while the 911 RSR is the standard-bearer for the Porsche Works teams in international blue riband events like Daytona and the Le Mans 24 Hours.

With a record number of overall victories, Porsche is the most successful manufacturer in Le Mans history. In 2014, Porsche returned to Le Mans and the World Endurance Championship (WEC) with the factory-run 919 Hybrid sports prototype race car in the top LMP1 category, and scored its first outright victory in its debut WEC season in the final race in Brazil.

Porsche scored its 17th and latest success in Le Mans last June when Britain's Nick Tandy, New Zealand driver Earl Bamber and German F1 star Nico Hulkenberg took the chequered flag in their 919 Hybrid LMP1 after 24 hours of flat out racing. Chasing this trio across the line was the second 919 Hybrid of Brendon Hartley (New Zealand), Mark Webber (Australia) and Timo Bernhard (Germany) to deliver a 1-2 result for the Stuttgart team. This trio ultimately clinched the 2015 Drivers' World Endurance Championship, and the WEC Manufacturers' Championship, for Porsche.
