Mary Ann “MeAnne” Espinosa, a sales consultant at Porsche Center Philippines, had the distinction of making it to an elite club of sales professionals for the Stuttgart-based supercar manufacturer.

Espinosa, who has worked at Porsche for three years, was recognized as one of the top 100 Porsche sales consultants worldwide and was feted via the Porsche Sales Excellence Award 2016. The winners were flown to France, first to Paris where they enjoyed pampering in a five-star hotel and a scenic tour of the city, and then onto Le Mans via land travel aboard Porsche vehicles to take in the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

VIP treatment for Espinosa and the rest of the winners also included a helicopter ride to marvel at the Circuit de la Sarthe from above plus a guided ground-level tour around the track. Other activities included a stint aboard a go-kart or a ride on the Big Wheel for panoramic views of the Le Mans countryside.

Exclusive privileges were extended to winners of the Porsche Challenge. These included hot laps aboard a powerful Porsche GT3 RS around the circuit, a meet-and-greet with Le Mans drivers, a tour of the 919 Hybrid’s pit box, and an incredible opportunity to do a grid walk right before the start of the world’s most famous and longest-running endurance race.

“I feel extremely proud to be the only Filipino to be recognized with this award. I’ve always taken seriously the privilege of being able to sell Porsche vehicles, and I thank my Porsche Philippines family for the opportunity and trust to do so,” said Espinosa.
