Porsche Club of America hosted its 2nd Annual Werks Reunion on Friday August 14, 2015. This premier Porsche event took place in Carmel-By-The-Sea at the Rancho Canada Golf Club during the world famous Monterey Car Week in California. Designed to celebrate all aspects of Porsche enthusiasm, from original condition classics, race cars, current models, modified outlaws and everything in between, this venue dazzled both spectators and competitors alike with the intention to be a way for all Porsche Clubs and registries to mingle. Free to the public, thousands of spectators were treated to a stunning display of more than 700 Porsches along the rolling fairways and pristine greens. Throughout the day, many Porsche enthusiasts, collectors and vendors mingled together while admiring the beautiful and vast array of the Porsche marque.
Under the warm California sunshine, Porschephiles had the pleasure of feasting their eyes on supercars like the 918 Spyder, Carrera GT, and 911 GT1 as well as several “4 cam” cars from the Ingram Collection. In addition, there were many wonderful examples of air and water cooled Porsches on display in the concours along with several race cars including a 904, and the star of the show…the #21 Gulf liveried 917. And to add a bit of variety, there were several Porsche powered cars on display including a rare 1957 Denzel and a 1958 Enzmann for viewers to enjoy. There were truly some works of art on the green this fine day, it was great talking to the owners as well as some of the people who restored these fine automobiles.
The parking corral was its own breathtaking show with more 356s, 911s, 912s, 914s, Boxsters and Caymans spread across the rolling fairways framed by the Santa Lucia Mountains. There was definitely something for every type of enthusiast at the 2015 Porsche Werks Reunion and I look forward to seeing what the PCA has in store for next year’s event.
