Drivers to summon Porsches with new US$2000-a-month subscriptions

  • 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The Launch level, which costs US$2000 ($2570) per month, provides on-demand access to eight variants, including the 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman S, Macan S and Cayenne.

Vehicle bookings and exchanges are managed through a smartphone app, and a "white-glove vehicle delivery" service is promised to members.

Even better, the Passport isn't almost as expensive as you might expect.

Always lusted after that dream sports vehicle, but could never decide on which one?

Porsche will start a "subscription service" for customers that could give them access to a number of their sports cars and SUVs, from $2,000 per month. For an extra $1,000 per month, members can upgrade to the Accelerate tier, which includes access to all 22 Porsche models such as the Porsche 911 Carrera S, the Panamera 4S, and Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUVs.

Membership plans include vehicle tax and registration, insurance, and maintenance, as well as detailing, for the fixed monthly fee. Porsche says both plans require a one-time $500 fee and all membership approvals are subject to background and credit checks.

Assuming you're approved on both, subscribers will be able to choose their preferred vehicle in the app, and set up their same-day or future scheduled deliveries.

Furthermore, Automakers are anxiously waiting for such plans to offer to all the consumers who cannot afford a premium auto but they love to drive them for a limited period of time. According to the same report, those who avail of the service will have "app-driven access" to a number of vehicle models, based on a schedule.

Currently, Porsche is looking for feedbacks from the customers in Atlanta. Depending on how that goes, Porsche will consider expanding the service to other markets. Volvo is planning on launching a similar service, Care By Volvo, next year via its XC40 SUV.

Porsche is partnering with Atlanta-based startup Clutch Technologies LLC, which sells analytics software that can predict which models will be in demand based on past customer behaviour, weather conditions, and other factors. For more such updates, stay tuned with us.
