Luftgekühlt is coming to the UK for the first time, and the event will be hosted at Bicester Heritage this weekend. It’s a special celebration of all things Porsche and air-cooled, and is not to be missed by die-hard fans. Porsche Classic Life is the title sponsor for the event, and will be exhibiting a few icons of 911 history.

Porsche Classic Life, a collaboration between Dick Lovett Porsche and Porsche Great Britain, is based at ex-RAF Bicester. Housed in a World War Two fire station, it’s a one-stop shop for classic Porsche customers, owners and enthusiasts.
Here a car can be inspected, while Porsche Genuine Parts can be ordered using a clever interactive touchscreen display. Porsche Classic Life has access to a catalogue of over 52,000 official components, which can be fitted at Porsche Centre Swindon by qualified technicians.
In attendance at Luftgekühlt will be an early 1964 example of the Porsche 911. This red beauty is one of the purest expressions of the 911 shape on show, and represents the beginning of this sports car’s journey. You’ll also come across a rather dapper 1987 930 Turbo finished in rarely seen Venetian Blue. This 1980s icon has only around 48,000 miles on the clock and is immaculate.
A Guards Red 964 Turbo will be joining it, along with some other very special 911s. Hunt around and you might also be able to find Porsche Classic Life’s Volkswagen T3 Doka in its special Porsche livery. It’s not an air-cooled Porsche, but it’s still pretty cool.
Porsche Classic Life will become an open space for Luftgekühlt attendees to visit. The memorabilia and iconic parts on display, not to mention its impressive collection of scale models, will have Porsche fans captivated.
