Last weekend, Porsche rocked the Monterey Peninsula with two of the greatest events ever held on this famous piece of land by the sea: the Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV and the Porsche Race Car Classic.
More than 60 years of Porsche history was showcased at the event, highlighted by some of the rarest and most powerful Porsche classics in history. Together with some of the most famous Porsche racers in history, more than 350 race cars were driven in eight different racing groups. The three-day program of on-track competition was complemented by a Concours d’Elegance, which was open to invited race participants, to go with special activities celebrating the decades-long history of the legendary 911 race cars. On Sunday, Oct. 16 the participants were invited at the Porsche Race Car Classic - the largest and most comprehensive collection of early Porsche race cars ever assembled. Next to the cars, this special event also included a feast of gourmet food and vintage wines, with all the proceeds going towards funding lung cancer research.
But one of the most important events was the launch of the new generation 911 on the North American market.
