Porsche is undisputedly an iconic brand. Ever since the launch of the first 911 at the Frankfurt motor show in 1963, the ‘Porsche Mythos’ (translation: ‘the myth of Porsche’) has consistently grown. No other car’s shape is more recognizable. Few other brands have more history. No other make is loved as much as Porsche.
On March 6th the second annual ‘Das Renn Treffen’ (translation: the race meet) will once again pay homage to this icon and unite hundreds of Porsche cars with thousands of enthusiasts in the streets of South Miami.
Last year’s inaugural event featured 175 classic and new Porsche automobiles, among them a 1-of-7 Carrera G5 356 four-cam, a Carrera GT and a 918 Spyder. 6,000 visitors were awed by an unforgettable display.
This year promises to be even grander with over 200 cars expected to register, showcasing almost 60 years of Porsche evolution. Judges and visitors will vote on their favorite cars in 21 categories of the curated concourse.Spectators have the opportunity to mingle with collectors to get first-hand details on every car.
To add to the excitement, Magnus Walker of Urban Outlaw fame, joins Das Renn Treffen to share stories and sign autographs. Rumor has it that he is collaborating with Nakai-san of RWB at Miami’s Parkhaus 1 , the event organizer.
And if all this was not enough, Bruce Hollander will exhibit his extensive collection of Porsche memorabilia publicly for the first time during the concourse. Over decades, he has preserved unique items such as the very first English-language Porsche brochure, printed in 1948, hundreds of Porsche race car and car models, and several rare ‘Hoffman trophies,’ which were awarded to deserving dealers in the 1950s by Max Hoffman, Porsche’s first importer in the US. Lovingly named “Porsche Obsession,” this collection is said to be one of the largest in the world.
Das Renn Treffen, the largest Porsche gathering in South Florida, will certainly not disappoint and offers something for everyone. Especially if you, like us, love Porsche.
