Air | Water: Luftgekült’s Second Act


Final weekend marked the ninth Luftgekült present, and this time round it was held again on my residence turf – the San Francisco Bay Space – for the primary time since its inception in 2014.

Trevor covered day one, and when you haven’t had an opportunity to test that out, I’d undoubtedly suggest taking a look and bringing your self in control with Saturday’s curation. On Sunday, Mare Island reworked into Luft’s model new second act: Air | Water.


For the primary time, Luftgekült’s founders Patrick Lengthy and Jeff Zwart prolonged the occasion out to a two-day affair – air-cooled solely on Saturday, and the brand new mixture air-cooled plus water-cooled on Sunday to deliver a complete new spectrum of Porsches into the Luft fold.

I really feel prefer it’s been a very long time coming, contemplating nobody else has accomplished something like this. And it in the end creates a various gathering that highlights vital automobiles from Porsche’s total mannequin line-up, not simply the 911.


From a private standpoint, I wasn’t certain what Air | Water was going to be like, however my expectations had been excessive because the two primary folks in cost have earned their reputations for his or her robust curation expertise.

On one hand, I felt that the allure of Luftgekült and what made it particular to start with was the exclusivity in the direction of celebrating the previous and historic automobiles that come from Porsche and its deep roots in aviation, which is the place air-cooled engines type of originated. However however, everyone knows that Porsche’s historic significance doesn’t finish with the transition to water-cooled automobiles; it simply picks up the place it left off and that’s fairly cool in itself too.


Celebrating the extra trendy facet of the German automaker’s wealthy historical past is sensible truly, as a result of most individuals usually overlook that there are different sub segments within the Porsche neighborhood which might be closely missed, reminiscent of their SUV market, transaxle automobiles, huge household wagons and even crossovers.


With that in thoughts, I’m curious to see what extra will be accomplished from right here. I assumed the Universal Studios show back in 2019 could be the Luftgekült to finish all Luftgekülts, however the occasion as a collection all the time has some form of shock aspect that’s launched with each episode, and Luft 9 actually threw in a brand new plot twist.

Which begs the query, the place do issues go from right here? We’ll need to see, however one thing tells me Luftgekült’s tenth present celebration can not be missed.
