In the Porsche vernacular, Luftgekühlt represents all the air-cooled cars in the manufacturer’s history, from the Pre-A 356 through the 993 model line, which ended in 1998.
The Luftgekühlt brand is the brainchild of two-time Le Mans class winner Patrick Long and noted Southern California creative director Howie Idelson. A true Porsche happening, Luftgekühlt is an experiential car culture event centered around a tightly curated list of historically significant or interesting cars, both race and street. There's no set formula for our events, but we're excited by cool venues, fun people, and creative expression, so you can bet those elements will always be in our recipe. We like coming up with wild ideas that celebrate the passion we have for all things air-cooled, and we love collaborating with like-minded people and brands.
The 4th annual Luftgekühlt "air-cooled" Porsche festival was this weekend in San Pedro, California. Right outside Los Angeles, this show attracted cars and crowds from around the world as some of the most rare, and certainly most beautiful Porsches were on display to be celebrated among like minded enthusiasts.
