Textar, a Nisshinbo Group Co., and leading manufacturer of OE brake pads, and WORLDPAC recently ran a customer incentive contest culminating in a Porsche aficionado’s dream trip deemed the "Ultimate Car Enthusiast Experience of a Lifetime."

More than 40 specialty import service center winners joined Textar and WORLDPAC on a three-day trip that included a special viewing of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s (NCMA) first design exhibition, "Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed," and a private showing of the exclusive Ingram Collection consisting of extremely rare and prized Porsche vehicles and an honorary dinner with Cam Ingram, co-owner of Road Scholars and a celebrated master Porsche restorer, in the intimate showroom. To the surprise of two lucky guests, a random drawing awarded them an all-expenses-paid trip to the WORLDPAC supplier and Training EXPO (STX) happening in Orlando, Fla., in May 2014 and a grand prize all-expenses-paid trip for two to visit the Textar OE factory in Leverkusen, Germany.

"Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed" explores the history and development of the Porsche lineage from the 1930s to the present day. The exhibit features more than 20 automobiles including Porsches owned by Ralph Lauren, Steve McQueen, Janis Joplin and the one-of-a-kind Panamericana concept car on loan from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Ingram Porsche Collection is one of the most renowned private collections of Porsches in North America. It represents a significant number of early, rare production and racing Porsches including 356s and 911s (including the 17th Gmund), 1952 American Roadster (ninth of 16 made), 1955 550 Spyder, 1961 Abarth (eighth of 20 made), 1964 904 and 30 Porsches on permanent display. It is a true celebration of one of the greatest global brands, and showings are by invitation only.

The co-sponsored event was in celebration of the Porsche 911’s 50th year anniversary and Textar’s more than 100 years in braking excellence, as well as Textar and WORLDPAC partnering to offer an exclusive range of German engineered, high-carbon brake rotors for European applications.

The event took place Jan. 15-17 in Raleigh, N.C.
