2018 will go down as the hottest summer on record here in the UK, so trust it to rain for the inaugural Luftgekühlt Porsche fest outside of the US.
The Porsche aficionado lifestyle brand Luftgekühlt brought the Cali Porsche vibe to Bicester Heritage in England. A working motor heritage museum and local airport, based in the heart of the motorsport central (Silverstone is only a few miles away). Bicester’s pre-war setting was the perfect backdrop for Porsches dating from 1948 up to 1998. Singers, 356’s, RUF stock, all here. The now ubiquitous Paul Smith Design was there as well for good measure.
To be fair the rain, and the fact that summer holidays have started, probably held attendance numbers back, but there were still enough folks taking on the drizzle and wind to view some special cars from 70 years of Porsche engineering. The curation was spot on. Valuable classics were staged meticulously around this pretty venue. Pop your head round one corner a RUF, stroll across the now sodden grass verges Singer recreations, a stunning sight really.
Massive congrats to #luftGB. The rain came down but these Porsches didn’t care. Hopefully, they will have the good sense to revisit and make this a yearly event. It would easily become a must do on the Car Chasing calendar.
