And that's just one part of an amazing prize.
When it comes to sports cars, there are few better than the Porsche 911. This legendary vehicle has been around for over half a century and has evolved into a car that is nothing short of magical. The Porsche 911 is estimated to be the most collectible of all sports cars and has a massively loyal following across the globe, but nowhere is the love for this car as strong as it is in America. The United States has the largest Porsche club in the world, and it is one of the most active. The Porsche Club of America (PCA) holds a yearly raffle come fall. This year, it's giving away one of the best prizes in its long and illustrious history: a 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America.
Each fall, PCA opens a members-only raffle, where members buy raffle tickets to win a brand new Porsche, and this year, the grand prize of a Carrera GTS Cabriolet America is being supplemented by a $25,000 bonus prize, and another lucky winner will walk away with a brand-new 2023 911 Carrera Cabriolet plus $25,000.
According to the PCA, the winner may also choose to walk away with an $85,000 grand prize plus the $25,000 bonus prize. The PCA says that after 10,000 entries have been received, another grand prize will be added for every 4,900 entries sold thereafter. Raffle entries are $50 a pop, and entries close on December 9, with the winners being announced on January 31, 2023.
The Grand prize for this year's raffle sure is special. The 2023 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America is exclusively available to the American market and was inspired by the 356 America Roadster of the 1950s. This car is based on the GTS, which means it is rear-wheel drive and features a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six engine producing 473 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the wheels via a seven-speed manual transmission. This Porsche is finished in a special Azure Blue 356 with white accents. Other standard features include active suspension, a sport exhaust system, and the Sport Chrono Package.
Only 115 of these cars will be produced, making it one of the most exclusive contemporary Porsches on offer. In fact, all the others have already been sold out, so this is your last opportunity to own this 911 Cabriolet.
The other car on the line, a 2023 911 Carrera Cabriolet, is the essential drop-top Porsche and retails for close to $120,000. The PCA raffled off a 2022 Cayman GT4 RS and $25,000 cash in March. This year's New Year's Eve celebrations will be memorable for two lucky Porsche Club members, and if you want in on the action, you simply have to pay a $46 yearly membership fee on top of your $50 raffle entry. Besides that, you also need to own or lease at least one Porsche or have one on order.
