Downtown Porsche Grand Opening & Women’s Track Day
At 68 Parliament St., Helen Ching-Kircher, CEO of Downtown Fine Cars, unveiled one of Porsche’s largest new dealerships in Toronto. The state-of-the-art facility features a modern design that complements the sleek and stylish nature of the Porsches it houses. At a later date, Porsche invited women to Mosport International Raceway to test their driving skills alongside professional drivers. Funds raised were donated to Mount Sinai Hospital’s women’s breast cancer unit.
