Feeling the need to get out and drive? Missing that interaction with other teeners? Mark your calendars for September 24-27, 2020 and join other 914 owners for some fantastic driving in beautiful east Tennessee.

This fall, head to the mountains of east Tennessee to celebrate 50 years of the Porsche 914 in America. The drive will be based in “action packed” Pigeon Forge, TN – home to Dollywood, outlet shopping, music theaters, moonshine distilleries, mini golf and go-karts! What more could you ask for?

Roads? You’re asking for roads? Well, then… how does close proximity to some of the best roads in the southeast – Foothills Parkway (including The Missing Link), The Dragon, Moonshiner 28, Cherohala Skyway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway – sound?

FRIDAY DRIVE: We’ll enter the newest section of Foothills Parkway in Wears Valley and travel west to US129 / The Dragon. From there, the drive takes us into North Carolina along Moonshiner 28. Photo op at Fontana Dam and then break for lunch and free drive afterwards. Hit The Dragon multiple times or take the scenic Cherohala Skyway.

SATURDAY DRIVE: A day of leisurely scenic driving in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and a portion of Blue Ridge Parkway. Lunch in Maggie Valley and then return the way we came. Plenty of pullouts to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Smokies.

Feel free to join us for the entire weekend or meet up with us for one of the drives. The main goal of this event is to bring 914 enthusiasts together to enjoy driving mountain roads. And with Pigeon Forge as the base of operations, there is plenty to do while not driving.

That engine looks too far gone to save. I’d be willing to come haul the scrap away if you’d like.

Dave,
As always, you are too kind smile.gif
It is so hard these days to find that kind of selflessness and the desire to uplift mankind!!!!
Actually having to replace the engine harness. There was a recall from Porsche about 20 years ago for this on the 1995 993 models. I was unaware and had been chasing electrical gremlins for months. It could have been a disaster! A meltdown or electrical fire.
I will keep your offer in mind every time I bust my knuckles.

What is the going rate per night for rooms ? I have heard that they are starting you out at $200 per night and you have to negotiate your way down. Tried to book online at first. Showed no availability, but the day after was $69. I don't mind a business trying to make a profit, but that seems a little steep.

Yeah... Pigeon Forge lodging in the fall can get crazy expensive - especially once the leaves start turning.

However, the group rate for Teenerpalüza is ~$70/night plus taxes. I have no idea what the standard room rate is for that weekend.

For Reservations:
Reservations may be made by phone at 1-877-502-7058 then select option 3 then 1. Please be sure to use Group Code 66-575. Reservations must be received by the Resort no later than 08/24/2020.

Reservations made other than described above (such as third-party online sites) may not be changed to reflect the group rate and therefore the attendee may not be associated with the group.

Hope that helps.
