When Porsche opened its new North American headquarters near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last spring, the German luxury carmaker made it more than just an office. The $100 million Porsche Experience Center includes a museum filled with vintage Porsches, an upscale restaurant with a view of the airport, and a 13,000-square-foot event space. But the main attraction is the 1.6-mile track, where you can take a spin in about a dozen different models. Three hundred dollars buys you 90 minutes behind the wheel of a Macan S, Porsche’s $54,400 entry-level SUV. Care to upgrade? An hour and a half with the 911 GT3, which goes from zero to 60 in 3.3 seconds, will set you back $750.
