Within 15 hours of registration opening, and before the actual venue has even been announced, Luftgekühlt 5 has filled their rosters and marked all entry tickets as 'sold out'! While we do not know exactly how many Porsches have entered, the answer is sure to be 'a lot'.
The show continues to grow with each passing year, and this April, 22nd, you'll be in for the Porsche event of the year if you attend. This year's event is different than past Luft shows in that all on-site parking if for air-cooled Porsche only! As you can see in the map above, there are two parking options: one for registered air-cooled Porsches and one for "Selects" (those Porsches that will be curated as part of the display). If you happened to get either of these highly desired golden tickets, run! Run all the way home and don't stop until you get there!
How I Missed Out
If you signed up for more information on the Luft website, you received an e-mail informing that tickets were on sale Tuesday afternoon around 4:00 P.M. Pacific. I, unfortunately, missed the email, as it was sorted into the 'Promotions' tab of my inbox. When I woke up this morning and finally saw the email, tickets had already been declared 'sold out'. I'm a little bit bummed, as I so dearly wanted to bring my 912E into the limelight.
For those of you who did not get a spot for your Porsche (myself included), there are still general admission tickets available, and tickets to the Friday night soirée at the Petersen Museum are still available at $120 per person. See you there?
