SAVANNAH, GA (August 2, 2011): A procession of Porsches will tie up traffic for a brief time Saturday as the Porsche Club of America winds down its weeklong annual meeting.


Approximately 200 of the two-seater German sports cars are expected to participate in the 2:30 p.m. procession from the Westin Savannah Harbor hotel on Hutchinson Island through Savannah and back to the hotel.
