You’ve waited patiently for months for your new Porsche to be delivered to the Atlanta Porsche Experience Center. Many in the Porsche community have expressed feelings of waiting for their Porsche to be delivered as unbearable and also as one of the most exciting experiences they’ve felt. Maybe this is your first Porsche or maybe this is another in the long stream of Porsches you’ve owned. Either way, getting to see and go through the PEC motions is likely something new to you and no doubt, it will be incredible.
But now the time has come. A delivery date has been given. One-way plane tickets and hotel rooms have been booked for your journey home. Have you considered the exposure your new Porsche will see on your way home?
Highway travel can be harsh on a new car. It is fraught with exposure to sand blasted bumpers, rocker panels, rear quarters and rear bumper edges, rocks thrown from tires and debris dropped from dump trucks and other vehicles… Every day we pass by casualties of this kind of exposure. Paint that was new and beautiful at one time and that is now looking at the unwanted quality of a respray or will live out the rest of its days as a beat up paint job. The reality is that your journey home may take a toll on your brand new Porsche. The good news for you is that Detailed Designs Auto Spa has the perfect solution for your immediate protection needs.
Instead of making a journey with your brand new Porsche unprotected, consider the option to have Detailed Designs Auto Spa protect your new Porsche with some of our industry leading protection solutions:
Paint protection film (known as Clear Bra) is a clear urethane film designed to protect covered surfaces from sand blasting and rock chips. Clear bra provides the pinnacle of paint protection in a way that is virtually invisible. Detailed Designs Auto Spa offers Xpel paint protection film installations with a 10 year manufacturer warranty that guards against yellowing, delamination or any other factory defects. Your warranty will include cost of materials as well as cost of labor. To learn more about Detailed Designs Auto Spa’s Xpel clear bra installations in Atlanta, read HERE. We are factory trained and certified to install Xpel clear bra on your car.
Our most popular clear bra protection package for new Porsches is our ‘Track Package’. It gives full panel protection to the front end as well as protection for the other major-exposed areas on Porsche cars, the rocker panels, the leading edge of the rear quarters (911’s and other Porsches with factory film on this area have the film removed for our more attractive style of installation that also protects better) and strips of clear bra behind the rear wheels.
Nano coatings are an evolution from carnauba waxes. These silica glass coatings provide owners with a surface that is easier to keep clean, a beautiful luster and gloss and longevity in protection from chemical elements that is unavailable from traditional waxes and sealants.

Detailed Designs Auto Spa has wheel and caliper specific nano coating technology available for your new Porsche. Designed for racing circuit race car wheels, our wheel and caliper nano coatings make keeping your wheels clean a breeze compared to non-coating wheels.
Of course, Detailed Designs Auto Spa hosts a number of services we have not discussed here. But our goal is not to upsell you everything. We want to be able to protect your car for the journey home and for years of enjoyment. If you have questions about any of the other services we offer, we are happy to discuss those with you.
Can you get it to us without it being on the road? ABSOLUTELY.
We offer our clients the option for us to pick up their Porsche via our enclosed custom aluminum car hauler. It features an escape hatch along with a removable fender. This allows us to open a door and step out, without damage and without crawling out a window of your car. Our pick up service features the same care we put into each clear bra wrap and Modesta application.
How long will this take and what do I do while I wait?
Typically, our ‘Track Package’ clear bra installation is completed in a day. We do not cut our installations loose the same day though. The reality of clear bra installation is that it expands and contracts and when installed, sometimes there is some slight releasing. When this minor releasing is addressed before leaving, it is a very minor fix. Keeping a project over night and reinspecting it before it is released is, in our opinion, a more responsible method for a higher quality installation.
So the question is, what is one to do while you wait for your car to be prepared? It’s fortunate for you that Atlanta has a great number of things to keep you busy for a day or two. For general sight seeing, HERE are some options. Want something louder and faster to do? Try Atlanta Motorsports Park‘s kart racing or kart school. Road Atlanta may be worth a visit on the right weekend. If you like a dirtier and dustier style of fun, you can rent ATVs, dirt-bikes and side-by-sides at Durham Town. As home of Bobby Jones, Georgia has a rich golfing culture and some awesome golf courses for the avid golfer. Wine tasters can have their fill at Château Élan.
After a day of your significant other tagging along, no doubt they will enjoy fine dining in the evening. One of my personal favorites for something special is Canoe. La Tavola offers great Italian and is located in foodie-central of metro Atlanta, Virginia Highlands. If you’d like to hunt down your own special meal, look HERE for ideas.
Atlanta is home to many fine 5-star hotels for resting up before you begin your journey home.
