ATLANTA, Nov. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- More than one million people worldwide have shown their love and support for Porsche on one of the world's most popular social networking websites. The official Porsche Facebook fan page reached a social media landmark this past week, when it welcomed its one-millionth fan on Monday, November 15.
Globally recognized, the Porsche Facebook fan page holds many interactive features for its members. Fans can view original images, stream video and read and discuss the latest news on Porsche products, motorsports victories, and events on the site's wall.
Additionally, several Facebook tabs point to other interactive social media Porsche has produced. One such tab links to the Porsche Family Tree website, where visitors can post their own history with the Porsche brand on an intricate "family tree," created to denote the lineage between Porsche owners and fans and their beloved cars. Currently there are more than 3,500 unique Porsche stories on the Family Tree site.
"Although we are witness to passionate customers and fans every day, it is neat to set another Porsche milestone by growing to over 1,000,000 strong on Facebook," said Josh Cherfoli, Online Relationship and Marketing Manager for Porsche Cars North America, "It's an excellent opportunity to help us connect with our fanbase, and we thank them all for sharing our passion."
Porsche has special plans for its one million devotees. As part of the continued celebration, fans can sign-up via Facebook to have their name inscribed on a special Porsche model. This vehicle will then be displayed as part of a unique exhibit at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Fans have until December 31st to become part of this experience, which will be shown in February 2011.
