Porsche SUV Day - Macans & Cayenne Day

Linville Gorge Wilderness

About this event

How about a Porsche SUV Mountain Drive through forest roads and a stop on a summit with gorgeous views? While vehicles such as the 911 have established Porsche’s reputation across the globe, the two best-selling models in the Porsche lineup are the Macan and Cayenne SUVs. That might be because they combine the right balance of performance luxury and spirited performance in the SUV segment.

Bring your MACAN, CAYENNE, TAYCAN or PANAMERA. Bring the family, kids, grandkids, pets, everyone! We will drive 88 miles where 8 of them are made of “forest road” (no asphalt) in one of the most scenic trails on the east coast. The *surprise road* has views that are matched by very few places east of the Mississippi, taking you in the breathtaking scenery and gorgeous views of the Pisgah National Forest.

Come ready to get your Porsche dirty! It will be worth!

We will make some stops as we climb the mountain, take some photos, enjoy the view and arrive at the Italian Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Pineola, NC.

We will seat and relax and enjoy some Italian Pizza or Pasta! We might finish lunch around 2:30 pm. Would you rather pack your own food and do a picnic at the top of the mountain? Great! Just let me know in the comments that's your plan so that I have the correct headcount for lunch!

We will then head to the Grandfather Vineyard & Winery since it is only 11 miles away. The Winery is an accredited winery nestled at the foot of the impressive Grandfather Mountain. They have live music on weekends and spacious grounds (if you are not a live music person). You can grab a glass of wine and drink by the river on a relaxing atmosphere!
