This morning the Luftgekühlt Media YouTube channel dropped a new video with some awesome footage recapping the most recent LuftGB event. It was a wet and interesting day at Bicester Heritage with the one and only tall-wing 550 Spyder, 904-045 (which we featured in a Paris auction preview back in 2013), and a bright red Porsche tractor, among many many others. The video is short at under 2-minutes, but it’s worth watching for some cool shots of old air-cooled Porsches and a bit of insight into the event from Patrick Long. It’s the final fifteen seconds of the video that are the most interesting to us, however, as Patrick lets slip some information that certain readers may be intensely interested to hear.
“Uh, we’re gonna head down the road and make a stop or two before 2019, and, um, Germany beckons”
That appears to be Patrick’s coy way of saying that you should look forward to a German iteration of Luft, bringing the whole experience full circle. German cars influenced a Southern California boy to start a Southern California show featuring German cars. Now that car show has spread internationally, and has brought that enthusiasm back to Germany!
Obviously we’re excited to hear about further expansion of the Luftgekühlt brand of shows, and we can only imagine that some extremely rare Porsches will make their way out to a German edition of the show, simply by dint of proximity to the origin point. Perhaps Porsche will bring out a few of their museum cars, as well. Will you be hopping on a trans-Atlantic flight to visit LuftDE? Keep checking back here for more information as it becomes available. As soon as the date and location are announced, we’ll make sure you have that info.
