The Greatness of Porsche and How to Ship One

The Greatness of Porsche and How to Ship One

What car can serve both as a daily driver and a weekend fun ride? Which make can both excite you and be practical at the same time? If we had to pick one, it would probably be a Porsche!

Say what you will about this luxury brand name, but you cannot deny they build special vehicles. Somehow they have maintained their spirit throughout the years, both in performance and in appearance.

Nowadays, Porsche is more than just a sports car. It offers experience that could make every person wish for more. Let us explore some history, and then see how shipping a Porsche works.

What is the history of Porsche?

We should start by saying that the marque has over 70 years of family tradition. One of the distinguishable characteristics that make the history of Porsche so great is the interlinkage between the company and the family itself. The founder – Ferdinand Porsche – had the mind of an engineering genius. Do you know who designed the first Volkswagen Beetle? He, indeed!

Through cooperation and innovation came the development of the first lightweight sports cars that could nevertheless fit high horsepower engines. From then on, Porsche became synonymous with racing. Today, their cars have won over 24,000 auto races all over the world.

Even so, we have to give credit to the young Porsche, Ferry, who led the company to growth. He had a set of criteria for his ideal sports car. Guess what though: none could meet them. So, just like any other modern entrepreneur, he decided to build one himself. With the very first Porsche sports car, the 356 model, he set the start of Porsche’s great future.

The 356 introduced the concept of reliability and comfort to sports cars for the first time, changing the perception of sports cars forever.

What is the best Porsche model?

Throughout the years Porsche have come up with plenty of iconic cars. Nevertheless, 911 became their most important model in history. In a little over 50 years, the 911 has grown to be an icon of German design and engineering. Today, it is one of the most recognizable vehicles in the world.

In 2012, Porsche 911 earned the title of The World Performance Car. Its top speed has increased by 75 mph since its inception and now reaches 205 mph. Yet, the silhouette and the distinctive shape have remained almost exactly the same.

Each Porsche model combines both skill and talent, making it an engineering masterpiece and a piece of art at the same time. One of Porsche’s main principles is that “design always follows function”. Thus the design cannot be the end in and of itself. It should stand up to tests and continuously tightening requirements before it becomes a genuine Porsche.

The company engineers make it sound almost like the design is a bonus rather than a key feature of the brand. Yet, we recognize a Porsche the moment we see it. That becomes even clearer with the 911, which many consider magic incarnate!

What is it like to own a Porsche?

We do not know how Porsche managed to build such a loyal fanbase of admirers. Many luxury car enthusiasts who buy Porsche once, remain loyal to the brand for their entire lives. In fact, since the cars also have value as classic, you can see generations of people sharing their love for Porsche.

Perhaps we should look at what the marque stands for. One of the most exquisite elements of the Porsche lifestyle is the brand’s crest. Do you know what it represents? The city of Stuttgart, which was founded on a stud farm. For this reason, the horse adorns the foreground of the emblem.

Initially, there was no symbol on Porsche’s cars, only the automaker’s name. It was in 1951 when the Porsche distributor in the USA suggested the company needed a symbol or a mascot that would make it stand out. Now it has become iconic in its own right!

Ultimately, owning a Porsche gives you a sense of freedom. You can be a sports car fan, and still enjoy comfort. You can drive a Porsche around town for practical tasks or use it for special occasions. And throughout all that you will be enjoying the special legacy of the marque!

How to ship a Porsche?

The entire process of shipping your Porsche starts with doing some research. To be more specific, you have to find reputable auto transport companies, which have experience in transporting sports cars. It all starts online, and usually on the first page of Google Search, but it should not end there.

Corsia Logistics has experience in shipping high-end automobiles and we offer white-glove auto transport service for any Porsche.

We have transported hundreds of Porsche models over the years. Owners of such vehicles usually pick enclosed car carriers, yet sometimes they opt for open transport. If you do not understand those terms, let us explain.

 

Open transport carriers are the most common in the US, which also makes them cheaper. People use them on a regular basis and you have probably seen them on the interstate. They can carry up to 10 cars, most commonly on two decks. They have one main problem for sports car owners: they do not protect the car from road debris, dirt, dust or weather conditions.

This is the reason owners of luxury cars choose enclosed trailers. While a bit more expensive, they keep your car in pristine condition. You will not receive it covered in dust from the road in need of a serious wash. Plus, you will have peace of mind that your car is traveling safe and sound. For these reasons we most often we advise owners of classic and luxury cars to book enclosed carrier.

If you are looking to ship your Porsche, we are always available online to help you out. Should you have any questions, our team can answer them at all time online and during business hours on the phone. Thank you!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
