Luftgekuhlt 6, Pt. II: Diving Deeper Into Porsche City

In part I of our Luftgekuhlt coverage we took you through Universal Studios' New York Street and Town Square during the morning roll-in to give you a glimpse of some of the vehicles placed on display before the floodgates to the public opened up. In part II, we head a little deeper into the "city" to see even more, while the parade of old, new, and fully customized Porsche continued to arrive and the early morning cloud hang began to burn off.

Arguably the most important piece of the Luftgekuhlt experience, the race cars and historically significant ones are all the rage and what many fans clamor for and have come to expect from the organization. Well, Luft6 did not disappoint, boasting incredible racecars, legendary builds and plenty of title winning examples on display just about everywhere you turned. Just a handful of these cars would have been more than enough to satisfy even the most critical fan, but no, Luftgekuhlt 6 brought dozens and contributed even more to out-performing their 2018 event, almost as if to rub it in our faces - and believe me when I say it was very much appreciated by all in attendance. Add to that a number of rare and seldom seen colors, models, and one-offs, and it's not hard to understand why the event has catapulted to the top of the "must see" list.

The sheer number of cars on display in addition to the number of people roaming the streets to take it all in is a bit overwhelming. Even if you're there the entire day, you're sure to miss something and when you catch it later online, you'll be kicking yourself for not taking that sharp left or cutting back behind a particular building to catch something special on display. Fortunately, we had another triggerman on hand in Dan Coria, whose photos accompany mine in this portion of the coverage.

Basem Wasef's 993 is looking better than ever these days. If you remember, Basem put together a story on his very tastefully modded '97 last year.

The gorgeous Forest Green Metallic paint and red interior combo is accentuated by a set of slick bronze, billet aluminum rollers custom-built by the folks at HRE Wheels and wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero summer meats.

One of my all-time favorite livery treatments is draped over this 935 dubbed "X-Ray" which took top honors in its class in Le Mans back in 1977 while also earning a very respectable third-place finish overall.

This 917 10 has a trio of first place finishes under its belt alongside 7 podium spots earned during its illustrious career under the hand of GELO Racing. With over 1,000hp on tap thanks to a boosted flat-12 heart, this particular example is noted as being one of the most original 917s in existence. That probably contributes to its estimated value, which eclipses the 10-million-dollar mark.

Of similar value is this 917 30 model, which was designed to better its predecessor and did so with a longer wheelbase that made a dramatic difference on track. Relying on 1,200-plus hp belting out of its turbo 5.4L flat-12, it's been given the complete Canepa treatment and is a stunning example of Porsche's racing legend, of which only 6 were originally built.

At a featherweight 1,764lbs, the 911R is ideal for race duties. The one you see perched on a slab of wood in the middle of Universal's faux city is VIN 11899001R, which makes it the very first production version of the 20 that were produced. It holds a laundry list of records that includes 5 world and 11 international records but is most known for being driven for 96 hours on Italy's Monza Circuit back in 1967.

Randomly parked next to a curb in "pretend city" was the Guntherwerks carbon fiber-bodied GW-993 based on a 993 Carrera 2. If you poke around the aftermarket long enough you're inundated with carbon fiber bits and pieces, many of which are fiberglass with a layer of carbon applied over the top. Often times ill-fitting and plagued by mismanaged patterns, the GW-993 is about as far away from that group as you can possibly get.

Masterfully crafted, the military-strict weave patterns, spot on body gaps and tight tolerances really put this creation in a class all its own. More than just a pretty face, the enlarged grill openings and integrated front splitter aid in cooling and downforce, respectively, and the shape carries a hint of GT car persona.

The white 911 you see is "Luftauto," the organizers' idea of a rally-esque 911 that was built to be tame enough for the street but fully capable of outstanding performance off-road. Joey Seely of Emotion Engineering led a team to completely revamp the vehicle from the ground-up, and in the end it was auctioned for $275,000 with all of the proceeds going to charity to benefit Pancreatic Cancer Research via the Autumn Leaves Project.

Not long after, Seely and his crew of experts that included Patrick Long, Rod Emory and Jeff Zwart puts their talents to work on this Signal Yellow version which we had the opportunity to photograph last year.

In a sea of white, black, red, and silver color options on display at Luft6, this pair of Rubystone 964 certainly stood out in the downtown cityscape.

The version you see in the first 2 photos is said to have been delivered to Japan but restored in Germany about 4 years ago. Both appeared to be in stellar condition.

There were less than 100 Porsche 550s ever created for the world of competitive motorsport and these days, you won't find many left, especially in this sort of condition. It was a little rough around the edges but, incredibly enough, all original.

Intimidating stare down courtesy of the 1984 Bayside Disposal 962 that was once piloted by Bruce and David Hobbs. Over 3 decades ago it earned a hard fought second place at Road America and was a treat to see in person.

This section of the show is actually the entrance to an entirely new backdrop which we'll take you through in part III, stay tuned...
