Porsche Expanding ‘Passport’ To More North American Cities


Porsche Passport
Porsche Passport is a monthly subscription plan that offers members unlimited swaps between models at the touch of an app. Cars are delivered and picked up by concierge anywhere a customer chooses within their service area. In Canada, all operating costs except fuel, taxes, and fees are included in a single monthly payment of $3,200 for the “Launch” membership that includes the 718, Macan and Cayenne models, and $4,200 for the “Accelerate” level that adds the 911 and Panamera to the menu.

“Consumers enjoy the flexibility of on-demand services,” said Marc Ouayoun, President and CEO, Porsche Cars Canada. “With a history of fostering innovation, the brand is keen to provide an exclusive experience with its sports cars via Passport through a partnership between Porsche Smart Mobility Canada, Ltd and Pfaff Porsche in Vaughan.”

The Atlanta Passport pilot that launched in late 2017 has found that the average subscription is about four months, with the most common reason for suspending membership being extended travel plans. This indicates that the month-to-month model provides the flexibility customers desire. Passport users swap models on average 2.5 times per month. Over 55 percent of members flip their vehicles at home, close to 30 percent swap their vehicle at work, and the remaining swaps
occur in other locations, such as a coffee shop or restaurant.

The IT backbone of the program will be managed by Clutch Technologies, who have been part of the pilot from the start. The expansion of Passport includes a new role for Porsche dealer partners in all five cities, who will oversee the customer experience and the fleet, including whiteglove vehicle delivery, and maintenance.

Porsche Passport details:
To sign up, interested customers can download the Porsche Passport app available on Apple and Android devices to apply for a membership, go to the website porschepassport.com, or call Porsche. Passport requires a one-time activation fee of $750 in Toronto, and membership approval is dependent on a background and driver profile check. Membership is on a monthly basis with no long-term commitment. Sign-up is now open for all five cities, with vehicle deliveries already available for Atlanta and shortly in the remaining locations. Once in the program, members can also use the Porsche Passport app to schedule same-day or future vehicle exchanges.
