Continental’s Giveaway Porsches

Mar 22, 2011

The 2011 Continental Tire Dream Giveaway, a fundraising event sponsored by WorldCause Foundation, is providing an opportunity for car enthusiasts to help seriously ill children while also entering to win a one-of-a-kind 2011 Hurley Haywood Edition Porsche GT3 and a matching 2011 Porsche Cayenne S. Hybrid.

Continental Tire, working with GRAND-AM Road Racing and Dream Giveaways, is the creator of the Continental Tire Dream Giveaway. The program was developed to benefit charities such as WorldCause Foundation and Camp Boggy Creek, the official charity of GRAND-AM, according to a press release.

The 2011 Hurley Haywood Edition Porsche GT3 was named after Motorsports Hall of Famer and GRAND-AM Racing legend Hurley Haywood, who is also the chief driving instructor for Porsche of America and a member of the Brumos Racing team. The GT3 bears several unique Hurley Haywood-inspired modifications and is the fastest, most powerful 911 GT3 to date, according to the release.

It features a 3.8-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine and has the ability to accelerate to 60 mph in four seconds. The giveaway car is the only Hurley Haywood GT3 in existence.

And keys aren’t the only thing the lucky winner will receive from Haywood. As the winningest driver in the history of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, he has agreed to teach the Continental Tire Dream Giveaway winner how to make the most out of the amazing performance car.

Meanwhile, the matching 2011 Porsche Cayenne S. Hybrid SUV averages 21 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway. It can go from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 150 mph. Both vehicles will come completely outfitted with a brand-new set of top-of-the-line Continental Tires.

WorldCause Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing help to those in abject poverty with a special emphasis on easing the suffering of children, provides funding to select tax-exempt non-profit organizations. It has selected Camp Boggy Creek, a favorite of Haywood’s, to receive a portion of the proceeds from the giveaway.

Camp Boggy Creek is a year-round medical camp for children ages 7-16 who are suffering from chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

The Continental Tire Dream Giveaway will continue through Oct. 15. The official winner will be announced on or around Oct. 24. More information is available at wintheporsches.com.
