Fast Fridays is always the kickoff to the car season in Kansas City. From 6:00-9:00, local car enthusiasts gather at KC Trends Motorsports at 13300 Grandview St. in Overland Park to enjoy cars, food, and friends. Aristocrat Motors brought out the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS and a Porsche 911 Turbo to the event. Our AMG GTS was undoubtedly one of the crowd favorites. This year, everything from American muscle to the rarest of European exotics came together for a truly spectacular scene. Fast Fridays is a family-friendly event and we invite you out to the next show (date TBA). Please like our Facebook page for more Fast Fridays updates.
What does the Earth mean to you?
Bill Wilkerson, one of our Certified Porsche Sales Consultants from brought a very earth-friendly Cayenne Hybrid SUV to Northview Elementary on Earth Day. He explained how hybrid-vehicles work and how the plug-in electric Cayenne can operate in electric-only mode for short distances, requiring no gasoline at all.
Porsche currently operates the largest fleet of plug-in hybrid vehicles including the Cayenne S-E Hybrid SUV, Porsche Panamera S-E hybrid sedan, and the 918 Spyder hybrid supercar.

Saturday mornings were made for car events, such as our driving event on May 2nd that hosted The Women’s Foundation of Kansas City.
Porsche Cars North America brought out a brand new Cayman and a 911 Carrera GTS so that the Foundation’s members could experience precision driving in a controlled environment. Throughout the day Porsche’s professional race drivers provided the members valuable instruction on how to put down the perfect lap time. Advice included tips such as: “Look out the side window instead of out the windshield when going around a corner,” or “Look into the curve and the car will follow your eyes”. Regardless of lap times, all in attendance received a morning of pure automotive enjoyment.
All proceeds from the Ladies Driving Event benefitted the Kansas City Women’s Foundation.
Aristocrat Motors is proud to be a sponsor of the 46th annual Kansas City Symphony Designers’ Showhouse.
The organization responsible for the 46th Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is the Kansas City Symphony Alliance, a nonprofit volunteer organization which promotes an interest in classical music throughout the Kansas City area. The group is particularly interested in the Kansas City Symphony and the Kansas City Symphony’s programming, young peoples’ concert and youth activities, and helps with these projects through through volunteerism, educational projects, social activities and fund-raising projects. The group’s main fund raising project is the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse, now in its 46th year.
This year all of the art within the house was beautifully complimented by four of Europe’s finest convertibles. A Porsche Boxster, Mercedes-Benz SLK250, Jaguar F-Type, and Maserati GranCabrio adorned the driveway of 96 Janssen Place. The manufacturers of these cars have just as much history as the house where the event was held. Constructed in 1911, 96 Janssen Place has been owned by lawyers, politicians, and wealthy Kansas Citians since its completion. The home has only been enriched over time, as have the cars from Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, and Maserati.
Attendees enjoyed seeing the beautiful cars as well as enjoying fabulous food and raising money for charity.
