Following a two-year hiatus, the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles has finally relaunched Morning Shift, its popular monthly gathering for car and coffee lovers in Southern California.

Originally launched in 2019, Morning Shift quickly established itself as a beloved monthly family friendly tradition for car enthusiasts and community members, routinely showing up in droves to show off their cars, marvel at others’, and explore the facility, all while sipping complimentary coffee. On July 17th, 2022 the Morning Shift made its long-awaited and frequently requested return, opening its gates to over 600 guests.

Hundreds of cups of coffee were poured over the course of the morning, courtesy of proud Porsche Motorsport partner SACRED Coffee, as guests toured the facility and admired the collection of cars on display, united under the featured vehicle theme of the showcase: “Champions.” In keeping with this theme, the facility’s main walkway was lined with winning Porsche racecars from a prestigious list of worldwide racing competitions, including Le Mans and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The event’s “Champions” theme wasn’t limited to the facility’s exterior, either. Upon entering the PECLA Gallery, attendees were astonished to find the 2022 Super Bowl Championship Lombardi Trophy on display, made available through the partnership between Porsche Cars North America and The Los Angeles Rams.

Furthering the event’s spirit of competition, guests were invited to participate in the Porsche Esports Challenge USA. From behind the wheel of the Porsche Vision GT in Gran Turismo 7, each competitor raced to set their fastest lap on a digitally recreated version of the world-famous Laguna Seca Raceway, battling for a chance to attend the Grand Finals at the upcoming Sports Car Together Fest at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
