Want to drive a Porsche, without actually owning one? Porsche’s new Passport subscription program could be just what you’re looking for. The on-demand short-term rental platform allows anyone in Atlanta to subscribe for $2,000 per month, which will provide access to eight mannequins of Porsche includes the 718 Boxster, Cayenne and Cayman S at launch.
Those who want a bit more can sign up for the Accelerate program, which is $3,000 per month, but which provides access to a total of 22 Porsche sits and variances, including the 911 Carrera S, the Macan GTS and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUV.
The price of membership may seem engulf, but it covers imposition, registration, policy, maintenance and even detailing rewards, which can really add up when you’re talking about a Porsche. Also there’s a one-time $500 activation fee, as well as both a background and a approval check which is probably a reasonably tolerable query given the value of the vehicles you’ll be getting.
Atlantans who sign up can get their vehicles handed on-demand to the orientation of their choosing in the metro Atlanta area starting this November, and then can exchange their cars for other models likewise employing the Porsche Passport app. This Atlanta pilot, and its results, will determine whether Porsche continues to grow the program in the future.
Subscription-baesd car programs are increasingly an option automakers are looking to change up owned and enter into negotiations with the changing demands of purchasers. Cadillac debuted its own similar planned early this year, and it’s likely going to be an option more auto producers look at as consumers look around for alternatives to buying vehicles outright or traditional leasing models.
