“It's a funny thing about a Porsche. There's the moment you know you want one, there's the moment you first own one, and for the truly afflicted, there's a decade or two that passes in between.”
Buying a new Porsche in Vilnius, however, won’t take decades, with the brand new Porsche showroom opening its doors in early 2015. The centre brings an exclusive opportunity to the city and adds a level of prestige to its automotive offering that only a Porsche can. The new building, encircled by the interchange of two significant roads in Vilnius, entices passers-by with the unmistakeable Porsche logo above its prominent showcase of cars visible through the glazed curved main facade of the building. The materiality and spatial quality of the new centre is a pure expression of the proud Porsche brand, realised for the first time in the Lithuanian context.
