Captain Kim Lefebvre has retired after 29 years in the Naval Medical Service Corps. Her military service has taken her far and wide. She has been stationed in California (San Diego, Monterrey, and Port Huyneme), Jacksonville FL, Groton CT, Philadelphia PA, Puerto Rico and Sicily. She was the Commanding Officer at the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory in New London, CT and at the Naval Hospital in Sigonella, Italy on Sicily. Having grown up in Rhode Island, summering with family in New Hampshire, Kim and her husband Peter have decided to return to New England. They have chosen Moultonborough NH as their permanent residence.
Kim was introduced to autosport when attending autocross and NESCC events with her father. She tried autocross and got hooked. In 1998 she bought her 1st Porsche, her dream car, a 1985 Carrera Targa. She sold it in 2008, while stationed in Florida, and bought a 997 at Brumos of Jacksonville. Brumos gave her a PCA membership and a day at their performance driving school, where she was instructed by the legendary endurance champion Hurley Haywood. In 2011, Kim and Peter moved to San Diego. She missed her ‘85 Carrera, so they bought an ‘86 Carrera. There they did many Autocross events at Qualcomm Stadium before stepping up to DE and Time Trial events. In order to preserve the 86 Carrera, they bought a 944 to share. Finally, Kim decided she needed her own track car, so she bought a 2007 Cayman S. They drove events at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Chuckwalla Valley Raceway and Auto Club Speedway while in California, and in 2014 they both became instructors. They sold their track cars when Kim was assigned duty in Sicily, but then bought a 2014 Cayman S when they returned stateside.
Kim, we are happy to welcome you to our PCA events and hope to see Peter, as well. It is amazing to me that you have been able to combine a distinguished military career while sustaining your love of Porsche. Your contribution as a DE instructor is appreciated, but so much more we thank you for your dedication and service to the Navy and our nation. As is the tradition in military life, we also honor the spouses who support their partners in their service, and in this case who is also a partner in Porsche.
