Hot on the heels of the Petersen Museum’s success hosting its newest Porsche Effect Exhibition, the Californian museum is set to showcase ‘Luft X Petersen – 30 years of the 964’; officially kicking off the fifth annual Luftgekühlt show on Friday, April 20.
Featuring a rare collection of air-cooled Porsches, the celebration not only marks the 30th anniversary of the Porsche 964’s debut at the 1988 Frankfurt Auto Show, but also includes a video projection wall on the third floor, a DJ, live music and gourmet food alongside an exclusive gift package.
Guests will also have the seldom offered opportunity to speak with Porsche dignitaries and sample specially commissioned cocktails in the museum’s rooftop penthouse. No, you aren’t dreaming – this really is a car show.
The prestigious event will conclude with a panel discussion headed by racer Justin Bell, son of legendary racer Derek Bell. Other featured guests include Luftgekühlt co-founder Patrick Long and further iconic heads of Porsche state.
‘Celebrating the popularity of the Luftgekühlt show, our VIP reception will offer guests another opportunity to revel in the magnificence of iconic Porsches,’ said Petersen Executive Director Terry L. Karges.
‘This event will not only serve as the official kickoff to Luft 5 but also commemorate the long-lasting effect of the marque on Southern Californian enthusiasts.’
Representing all the air-cooled Porsches throughout the company’s history, the Luftgekühlt show promises to be an immersive car culture event focusing on a ‘meticulously curated list of historically significant or interesting race and street cars’.
This is set to include classic vehicles as far back as the Pre-A 356 through the 993-model line.
Co-founded by two-time Le Mans winner Patrick Long and acclaimed Southern California creative director Howie Idelson, the meetup has grown beyond the small gathering of enthusiasts into a cultural phenomenon in the greater Los Angeles area.
