2015 has been a fantastic year for Weissach in many ways! This year we celebrated 35 years of pre-owned Porsche sales and service, and Lotus Cars in Western Canada. Building on the success of our history, in July we opened our new facility in Calgary, Alberta; as we celebrate our past we are equally excited for whats to come! Highlights this year included our annual Tech Session which this year featured Don Kitch of Proformance Racing School, our June Drive weekend to Predator Ridge, attending the 35th Anniversary of the Porsche Club’s annual Whistler Weekend, supporting the Vancouver Foodbank with our ever-popular Cars & Coffee, and a host of other events. When we host events our aims are to give back to the community and to bring car enthusiasts together. We were extremely successful at doing that [...]

This winter, help prepare your Porsche for rain, snow, and ice with wheel and tire packages. Tires are one of the most critical components of your vehicle for all types of winter weather including snow, ice, and cool temperatures. Many highways require mandatory winter tires this season. Road-checks will be in effect. See us today for winter tires and ensure you and your family are safe this season!
HIT THE ROAD WITH CONFIDENCE. YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY.
Things you need to know:
All Season Tires harden up in the winter and lose traction. Every safety feature equipped on your vehicle relies on tire grip and performance. Winter tires are constructed from compounds that retain their flexibility in cold weather below 7 degrees Celsius. In [...]
Lighter and more powerful than before, the redesigned Evora 400 is also faster and more sophisticated than any other Lotus in history, claim its creators. It’s been around for six years – this is not so much a face-lift as a reincarnation. Lotus says more than two-thirds of the parts are new. The Evora looks much the same from dead abeam, but the nose and tail are comprehensively new, and the cabin too. So is much of what’s underneath.
400 horses from a Toyota 3.5-litre V6 engine, which Lotus transmogrifies with its own supercharging, charge-cooling, intakes, exhaust and management. It’s an ever-alert beating heart to the car. At the front there are much bigger grilles designed into the nose, there not just to give the car a more thrusting appearance but also to allow [...]
When it goes on sale next spring, the Huracán Spyder will offer three roof colors (red, brown, and black), 11 non-special paint colors, five interior trim packages, 17 interior colors, and endless more personalization options available through the Ad Personam customization program.
As expected, the Huracan Spyder is identical to the coupe from the waist down, with only the soft-top, the engine lid, and the rear haunches setting it apart.
The new soft-top is arguably the highlight of the Huracan Spyder, as it was designed with the utmost attention as to not alter the coupe’s aerodynamic shape too much.
2015 has been a good year so far for Weissach & Lamborghini Vancouver in supporting local and national charities. We try as much as possible to give back to the local community and we will continue to make our efforts bigger and better in the future. Last weekend’s event was no different. 22 Lamborghini owners set off on a 3 day,1000km drive from Calgary to Vancouver in support of the unbelievable work by charity group ‘Dreams Take Flight’.
Dreams Take Flight is a national non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers dedicated to providing the trip of a lifetime to medically, mentally, physically, socially or emotionally challenged children. With the aid of the Air Canada Foundation and local sponsors and businesses they make dreams a reality for special kids across Western Canada. Air Canada donates an aircraft to each chapter for the day and [...]
Luxury Super Car Weekend is one of the most anticipated events of the year for any Vancouver car aficionado. Two days full of luxury vehicles, bright skies and excited car enthusiasts. The event began with an opening party on Friday evening at Inform Interiors in Gastown. The 50 Water Street location showcases three floors and an outdoor rooftop of the world’s best contemporary furniture and design products. The opening party boasted some of the world’s most luxurious cars on display, beautiful food and enjoyable comradery with fellow industry guests. We had the pleasure of bringing two vehicles to display throughout the evening, the striking Aventador LP 700-3 and our V10 bull the Huracan LP 610.
August marked a major milestone for Pacific Northwest Porsche enthusiasts. Since 1980 Porsche Club of America members have been meeting in Whistler British Columbia for 3 days of socializing and activities, the theme of course being everyone’s favorite car marque. With a few skipped years due to conflicting events and a few years held at different venues, 25 Whistler Weekend events have been held over the course of the last 35 years.
Organized by Canada West Region and Pacific Northwest Region, the event takes countless volunteer hours and hard-work from a dedicated group of enthusiasts to pull off. The results are unlike any other car event in the region, and has attracted club members from as far away as California and Alberta.
The weekend features a Bavarian-style welcome reception, a Saturday concours [...]
Coffee and Cars, a highlight of our summer event calendar, is a casual car meet we hold on the second Saturday of every month from April through to October. We started these events five years ago with the aim of taking advantage of the nice weather and bringing car aficionados together. Owners show off their favourite cars, we supply coffee and pastries, and everybody brings enthusiasm! It has gained a loyal following and we look forward to it every month.
This year we wanted to use the event to give back to the community and decided to partner with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. The GVFB provides training, access to healthy food and education to over 28,000 people each week. Donations peak during the holiday season when the spirit of giving is [...]
We are pleased to announce our next road trip event organized by our team at Weissach on June 6th & 7th. We take this opportunity to invite all of you Porsche, Lotus and Lamborghini owners to join us on this spectacular drive that will take us from Vancouver to Vernon and back again; absorbing some of the best scenery BC has to offer. The best part is you get to bring a friend or partner, so you can share the experience!
Our adventure will start with the group meeting at Weissach at 8.30am for coffee and waffles. We will then depart convoy style stopping in Whistler to catch up with everybody before we set off to the Okanagan via the Duffey lake road to Lillooet. A must do for any Top 5 driving list, this 100-km stretch between Pemberton and Lillooet isn’t so much about easy driving as it is about [...]
