luftgekuhlt anyone going?

Recommended Posts

got a 912 having a few extra HP added in LA. A bit of an excuse to go for a test drive before shipping it home. This looked pretty cool last year and was thinking of hanging a trip around it

I'm very tempted too, just depends on other trips.

Thinking of flying in the wednesday before and leaving on the Monday after. There was a number of cool gatherings on the Saturday last year and I’ve got to know all manner of p-car nuts through Insta. Has to be an opportunity for a big drive and a couple of work shop visits at the very least. 

Next I have to figure out how I can legally drive mr POLO whilst I am there..

Hertz at LAX have a range of Porsche’s available for rent, just an FYI - you can book luxury cars online, take a look at the website and it will calculate costs 

I’m also thinking of going to the new Porsche experience Centre in Los Angles next month, I’ll report back on it

WOW this event looks great !

A few more of the Melbourne based guys are seriously considering attending.

What's the deal does one have to buy tickets either beforehand or at the venue or is it free attendance?

Great opportunity also  to visit a number of tuning shops and acquiring some P-car bits ( I need a twin plug dizzy)

Check out https://turo.com/ if you want to rent something a bit more interesting while you are over there. I rented a Maserati while I was there earlier this year. They sent an Uber to pick me up from the airport and took me to the car nearby, and the same when I left. It cost me about the same as a 'luxury' car from Hertz or similar (In NY a Toyota Avalon was their idea of a luxury car).

Well I posted this very topic a few weeks back but my lack of outlaw credentials saw it suffer the indignity of zero replies.

Im a pretty good chance given it’s a two hour flight for me.

Yes Patrick Long replied also asked him if there could invitations to any pre-show porsche  activities he said many have been organised in the past around the weekend.

Most likely 2 at least from Brisbane going we too want to purchase a list of equipment suitable to hotrod porkers so we may leave a little earlier to do some shopping or serious looking and do the shopping after the show we assume a lot of suppliers could be there as well.

So this joint is down town would you recommend it and more importantly would you you be able to persuade MW to accept visitors to the shrine.

now this is one lefty to another brother

ACE I would recommend for sure. DEUS did a party the night before last year and I saw a few smaller gatherings.  

I need to confirm the car I am having fixed up will be ready for a test drive before I book tickets but if so will reach out to MW. No promises on bus tours though ?

Tom, if we do this, what do you think chances are we could get a look at singer if we’re a smaller Aussie group? Might ask Grant if he can help, or I’ll contact Damon via insta.

The Kid says

How are we looking for a Melbourne (Vic.) contingent?

If we have any punters from Vic considering attending  this event  it might be worthwhile having a chat at the forthcoming hanger bash in Geelong on the 20th of Jan .

I have a few contacts in Singer  - trouble is last time I organised a visit for a PFAer he pulled out last minute which made me look a bit of a dick. Closer to the time I might reach out again

I went to the 2nd and 4th Luft. This year's event will be smaller than last year. 

It's worth going if you have other things lined up in LA. otherwise it's a long way for an event that finishes around 2pm.

Helpful advice..............maybe Rennsport in September is a better alternative?
