991 Carrera Unveiling
INDIGO AUTO GROUP’S PORSCHE OF NORTH HOUSTON HOSTS UNVEILING OF ALL-NEW PORSCHE 911
Guests Celebrate Launch of the Seventh Generation 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera
HOUSTON, TX (February 11, 2012)—indiGO Auto Group recently debuted the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S models at Porsche of North Houston. The dealership welcomed more than 300 Porsche enthusiasts during a three-hour extravaganza designed to celebrate the new and improved sports car icon.
"We are thrilled to introduce our customers to the new Porsche 911,” said Chairmen and Dealer Principal of indiGO Auto Group Todd Blue. “The 911 Carrera and Carrera S are the ultimate choices for drivers who want a true benchmark-setting sports car that they can put through its paces and enjoy all week long, not just for show or on weekends.”
At the event, Porsche of North Houston transformed the dealership showroom and service department into two luxurious event spaces. The interior and exterior styling, exciting contours and precisely designed features of the new 911 were evident everywhere guests turned. The state-of-the-art service area was transformed into a hip lounge spot-lighting several Porsche 911 models where guests mingled and grooved to the classically modern sounds of DIVISI Stings Collide and sipped libations provided by Bandol Wines. After the much anticipated unveiling by Dealer Principal Todd Blue and General Manager Kelly Wolf, Rosemary’s Catering captivated guests with a lavish array of fare including a raw ice bar that served ahi tuna tartar and gulf shrimp cocktail in martini glasses and a futuristic nitrogen bar of fresh, hand crafted ice creams frozen at negative 321 degrees with liquid nitrogen.
The all-new Porsche 911, the centerpiece of both the showroom and service area, was the star of the event. The latest 911 offers first class luxury performance with an automatic start/stop function, electro-manual power steering and the world’s first seven-speed manual transmission. The 2012 911 Carrera is equipped with a new, 350-horsepower, 3.4-liter boxer engine, while the Carrera S features a 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter boxer engine.
“At Porsche of North Houston, customer service is our top priority, Porsche expertise is unmatched and Porsche heritage is celebrated 365 days a year,” said indiGO Auto Group General Manager Kelly Wolf. “As with every generation, the 2012 911 Carrera continues to raise the bar in both performance and efficiency.”
Todd Blue, Chairman and Dealer Principal of indiGO Auto Group, Lamborghini Houston and founder of indiGO Classic Cars, purchased the award-winning dealership in January 2010 and immediately began differentiating Porsche of North Houston from other Porsche stores in the Houston market. Blue, a life-long car enthusiast and collector, says the mission of indiGO Auto Group is to “prioritize continuous improvement, authenticity and service. Provide design-driven, timelessly modern facilities. Honor the heritage of the brands we represent. Share our automotive passion by enlightening, activating and rewarding our customers with the most unique experiential ownership.”
