The Porsche Rennsport Reunion V official artwork pays tribute to the decades-long success story of Porsche at Le Mans. Sponsored by Porsche Cars North America, Rennsport Reunion V is the latest iteration of the world’s greatest gathering of historic and contemporary Porsche race cars, and their drivers. The race event will be held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California on September 25-27, 2015.
The 2015 Rennsport Reunion poster depicts three of the most significant protagonists: the 356 of 1951, first Porsche entrant and first class winner at the famed 24 hour race, the mighty 917 which garnered the first overall victory with Hans Herrmann and Dick Attwood in 1970 and the 919 hybrid prototype with which Porsche scored an overall victory at Le Mans in 2015.
The painting is the works of automotive artist, Dennis Simon, who created the posters for three of the previous four venues. They show off the 1981 factory 935 long tail, named Moby Dick, in Martini colors and Al Holbert’s 911 RSR from 1974 (2011), the incredible 917 and 962 in Gulf and Löwenbräu liveries (2007), and the three 908s as they cross the finish line of the 1970 24 Hours of Daytona (2004). All three posters are now collectors’ items, and the new one will likely be no different.
