“It’s not just the cars, it‘s the people”

If you own a Porsche and live in Maine, the Down East Region is your opportunity to get to know your car better. Whether it’s through learning the performance capabilities of your machine, picking up tips on the care and feeding of your cherished vehicle, or just getting together with other Porsche lovers to talk cars, DER is here to serve your needs. Simply put, we’re Maine’s club for Porsche enthusiasts!


Saturday, June 2nd

9:30 AM

Come and join us for DER’s first tour of 2018.

We will start in Conway, NH, and drive through Bear Notch, Crawford Notch, Franconia Notch, and the length of the Kancamagus Highway.

We will meet at 9:30 at the east end of the Kancamagus (Rte 112) just off Rte 16 for signing of waivers and any last minute instructions. We will depart on our route at 10:00. The will be no “pit stops” until we get to Lincoln, NH, at about 11:30, so you should plan to take care of any other needs before our 9:30 meeting.

The tour will end at about 1:00 pm for lunch at the Muddy Moose in North Conway.

Please check your e-mail Friday night, June 1, for cancellation or postponement for bad weather.

Fundraiser To Benefit 

The Dempsey Center 

July 21st 

11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Bug Light Park

Come and join us on Saturday, July 21st at Bug Light Park from 11 AM to 2 PM, as over 150 Porsches will gather along the magnificent rocky coast of Maine in an all Porsche car show to benefit the Dempsey Center. The Dempsey Center provides free support services to anyone impacted by cancer.

There will be Porsches from all over the northeast with models ranging from the classic 1960’s model 356, to the latest Porsche 911’s, Panamera’s, and SUV’s. Air-cooled, water-cooled, rear- engine, front-engine and mid-engine. They’ll all be there!

This is the first time since 1986 that there has been an all-Porsche car show in Maine. 

This will be car enthusiast heaven. Most people will never have the opportunity to see so many iconic cars in one place. And all money raised will go to the Dempsey Center. Food will be available for purchase from various food trucks and there will be opportunities to buy Porsche memorabilia as well as to talk cars with the people who own them.


The fee for exhibiting is $30 per car if you pre-register or $40 per car at the gate.

This event is open for viewing by the public with a requested donation of $5 per attendee. Children are welcome and those under 12 are free. Join us for what promises to be Maine’s car community’s most exciting car show of the summer. And all to benefit the Dempsey Center.
