GALLERY: Luftgekühlt 8 And The Perennial Popularity Of Air-Cooled Porsches

February 2, 2024 | Enthusiast News, From The Web, Petrolicious.com

Since its first edition in 2014, Luftgekühlt has become the de facto template against which all other “elevated” car shows are judged. Accessible, laid back, and open-minded, it can be thought of as an antithesis to the stodgy concours circuit and the lazily strung-together “Luft” imitators alike. 
One-make events are nothing new, but just as Singer almost singlehandedly redefined the restomod paradigm and set a new reference point for all that followed in its wake, the guys behind Luft took a very simple idea—a car show featuring only air-cooled Porsches—and showed us what’s possible when attention is paid to the very last detail. Every sight line is composed down to the inch, every theme is simultaneously easy to spot and perfectly woven together into the overall mesh. Only something so particularly prepared can feel so naturally occurring. Even those that are totally indifferent to Porsches will find their attention thoroughly yanked around at Luftgekühlt.
