PARK RIDGE, NJ--April 18, 2013:  The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ) announces it has expanded its line of sports cars available for rent to include the Porsche 911, Boxster, and Cayenne, which join the already-available Porsche Panamera.  With the expansion, consumers in select markets are now able to rent a variety of Porsche vehicles that transform an ordinary trip into an extraordinary journey.

"The response among Hertz customers to the Porsche vehicles in our fleet has been overwhelming, clearly demonstrating our customers' passion to get behind the wheel of these cars," commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and CEO. "The race-proven technology and intelligent performance Porsche brings to everyday driving offer a truly unique driving experience to Hertz customers."

Hertz was recently voted Top-Rated for Vehicles in the Zagat 2012/13 U.S. Car Rental Survey; the expanded line of Porsche products provides more options for consumers looking for an unforgettable travel experience.  With suggested retail prices beginning from approximately $50,000 to $85,000, the 911, Boxster, and Cayenne offer a sports car driving character and everyday practicality without compromise.  Beginning this month, Hertz customers in select California, Florida, and Nevada markets can experience these remarkable vehicles with rates starting at $250/weekend day.

In addition to the new Porsche offerings, Hertz has once again been named a series partner of the 2013 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama and a sponsor of the 2013 JDX Racing Team.  As part of the sponsorship, Hertz will remain integrated into the GT3 Cup Challenge, with Hertz branding displayed prominently on all vehicles, while the 2013 JDX Racing Porsche GTC car will compete throughout 2013 in the American LeMans Series. 

"JDX had a strong 2012 season, winning their first ALMS race at Mid-Ohio, and we're excited JDX will campaign the #11 JDX/Hertz Porsche GTC for the complete 2013 season. With a new line up of avid passionate drivers, we're confident their skills and expertise will continue to impress throughout the year," Frissora added.
