Inside Porsche Rennsport Reunion 2018

All the Porsches. Not just a few historic models but, like, all of the historic ones: Mark Donohue’s 917/30 Can-Am champion, Dan Gurney’s Formula 1 racer, the 910 that won Le Mans in 1969, Professor Porsche’s Type 64, a bunch of cars once driven by Hurley Haywood. And then too many more to count.

The Rennsport Reunion, held every few years, returned to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca this past weekend to celebrate the Porsche brand. It was a huge mix of Porsches new and old plus the people who love them—and the people who helped make them so special. Our newest buddy: Hans Mezger, who designed so many engines for Porsche, from their original flat-six to their Can-Am monsters.

Oh wow, thanks for the photos.  I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of YouTube coverage this event got this year:

I don't have the link but the 911 GT2/935 that was shown as a customer car.  

Wow,  just fantastic.  It is a sight to behold.  Wish I could be there.

the 919 was amazing ,  190 mph at the start/finish line , I  wonder what top speed was down the main straightaway ?

And any lap times , rumor was they were going to try to beat the track record of less than a minute ,  but they never mentioned lap times on Friday or Saturday , 

It was a great show ,  way more 911 models then you could ever look at :)

Plus all the great Vintage Race cars....

When the next Rennsport comes back in 3 years try not to miss it !
