Porsche of Chattanooga is joining enthusiasts from around the world in celebrating the first international Sportscar Together Day on Saturday.  The day coincides with the iconic brand’s 70th anniversary of providing sports cars to generations of drivers. 

Porsche of Chattanooga is hosting The Porsche Club of Chattanooga along with Porsche drivers from around the region at the dealership on Saturday at 10 a.m. to enjoy a morning reception before departing in small groups for Look Out Winery in Guild, Tn. for lunch.   

Porsche owners will enjoy scenic beauty as they make their way along the bends and turns of Highway 41 on the way to the winery.  Once there, drivers and friends of Porsche will enjoy wood-fired pizza as well as an afternoon overlooking the Tennessee River, said officials.
