"The R Gruppe is a great group of very, very sick people who enjoy their Porsches."
You know when a member of your Porsche club describes the club in such a way, it's going to be an enjoyable club to belong to, assuming you're ever asked to join. This band of self professed 'misfits' is absolutely obsessed with their 911s, and are dedicated to the Porsche Sports Purpose aesthetic.
The R Gruppe Treffen
The annual R Gruppe Treffen is the national gathering for these Porsche nerds to get together and compare notes, bench race, and generally be cool together. Each car is specially assembled to the owner's individual tastes. Some cars have ducktails, some have 911R tail lights, some have ST flares, but each one of them is endowed with a bit of 'Sports Purpose' DNA.
These 911s are 'special snowflakes' in the world of Porsche. None of them have remained stock, and none of them are built for anything other than driving a bit quickly. It's a passion for the Porsche driving experience that keeps these Porsche owners coming back to R Gruppe Treffen every year.
These are Porsche owners that aren't afraid to get a few bugs on the windshield, to get a few rock chips, to rack up the miles. They love their Porsches, and they aren't afraid to shout it from the rooftops. Watch the video and see for yourself.
