This Arrive and Drive is a spin on our traditional October run from the east side of the metro down to lovely farm country of Marion County. Enjoy twists and turns over hills, skirt along rivers and creeks to a fine finish at the Benedictine Brewery. It is October and the end of drive gathering is mostly outdoors, so dress in layers, bring some lap blankets and enjoy a fall afternoon at the brewery. Bring your own picnic or get snacks from the Brewery. 
Registration will open on Thursday, September 23 at 7:00pm.  Registration closes on Monday, Oct 4 at 5:00pm unless already full.   Arrive and Drive Sat October-9

Here’s how the 2020 Porsche Taycan is made

The Taycan is Porsche’s first production electric car, and while the underlying technology may be different from the Porsches that came before, the Taycan is still assembled in a factory just like any other car. This detailed look (it’s nearly 30 minutes of raw footage) at the Taycan assembly line in Zuffenhausen, Germany, shows that, while some steps in the process are different, the Taycan is put together in much
