Porsche Werks Reunion 2014 – Report and Photos

The Porsche Werks Reunion 2014 was held Friday, August 15th at the Rancho Canada Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California. Hosted by the Porsche Club of America, the inaugural Monterey Classic Car Week event focused solely on Porsche started off with a bang, after a separation from the Legends of the Autobahn event this year. The afternoon was a fantastic spectacle for the Porschephile, as well over 500 of Stuttgart’s finest from every generation were on display.

With the help of Porsche Cars North America, show-goers had the privilege of getting up close and personal with some of Porsche’s more recent supercars, the V10-powered Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder. Even more special for the older audience were the cars from renowned Porsche collections, such as the Jerry Seinfeld and Ingram Family Collections. With everything from the very first 911 of Seinfeld’s collection to the 911R and other highly interesting RS models from the Ingram Family, these two collections provided a powerful statement for the debut Porsche Werks Reunion.

In addition to the 911-based variants, there was a particularly strong showing of 356s of every condition and type, a Glockler-Porsche Special and even a handsome 906 in attendance for onlookers to feast their eyes upon. The parking corral was a car show in itself, with more 356s and 911s overflowing the lawn than there was time to view. The Werks Reunion appealed to every type of Porsche enthusiast, from the ‘R-Gruppe’ and ‘Outlaw’ hot-rods to the highly accurate Concours-quality examples and even a nice sampling of historically significant racing machines from the brand’s deep motorsport heritage.

Competing on the same day during Monterey Classic Car Week with the Quail Motorsports Gathering and the Legends of the Autobahn, the Porsche Club of America did an admirable job with the Porsche Werks Reunion 2014 and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for years to come.

We split up pictures from the Porsche Werks Reunion 2014 into two galleries.

  1. I am highly disappointed in the reception that our factory 1982 Werks 911CS Turbo Flachbau received from a group who labeled their event ” Porsche Werks Reunion”. Considering the rarity of this automobile, one has to wonder if you even knew what you were looking at. Try finding an original 1982 Factory works car in the States, for that matter, try looking for a duplicate one anywhere. We didn’t even rate a Photo shot ‘ guess we weren’t “Porsche ” enough.

  2. Eugene all photos of cars at Werks Reunion have been done by independent parties and not by any of the organizers of the event. Sorry to hear you think you were mistreated. With over 500 cars attending Not every car could be in the spotlight.

    1. I learned long ago that there are two things for certain with how much attention you’d get for a specific car. (1) Its rarity: Rare cars is only something defined by “insiders”, but keep in mind that viewers (and judges) are generally selected and defined by a “peanut gallery” (2) Its performance. While one specific performance for one car might be ideal for a specific kind of use, don’t be surprised that a specific car that would perform terribly across the board win in a certain class. I did hear that one of the greatest difficulties with one winner over another would be lack of information on how your car did vs. the car that won. I believe rating of cars is based on a pure subjective manner with some stable measured criteria. So go ahead and show up with a 924 with a sunroof and beat that ultra rare 911R. The only way to really tell what is the “best” Porsche is putting it on a track using the same driver performing identical wins on any drive for its class. .
