More than two dozen executives gathered for an exclusive preview of the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, sponsored by Porsche of Austin and 9Gauge Partners on Thursday, June 25.

This event put local Austin executives in front of Porsche’s E-Hybrid sports car, a model first released in 2010 that pushed the boundaries of sustainable automotive technology.

9Gauge and Porsche of Austin sought in this event a chance to bring Austin’s local business leaders together outside the office in a fun, social atmosphere – not to mention the chance to enjoy seeing a piece of innovative, sustainable technology with an 887-horsepower engine and a base MSRP of $845,000.

“We were very pleased to see the turnout and are looking at repeating this on a quarterly basis, perhaps at other similar locations” said Jonathan Hines, partner at 9Gauge. “ It was great to see so many CEOs and CFOs mingling and catching up in an environment where the atmosphere was so unique as compared to typical Executive get togethers.”
