Porsche Werks Reunion, Fuel Curve

Porsche Werks Reunion

The Porsche Werks Reunion is a massive annual event during Monterey Car Week in California celebrating all things Porsche. A little off the beaten path out at the Corral de Tierra Country Club in Salinas, that didn’t stop hundreds of cars and way more people from rolling through.

Being in Salinas you’re nice and close to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, so after getting your fill of Porsche’s you can pop over and get a taste of high octane road course racing. Out here on the green, there were a few cars that looked like that belonged at the racetrack.

Right away we noticed this 964 with a wild bodykit. Wearing 935K3 rear quarter panels, a 930 slant nose, 993 front bumper and a 930S front spoiler – it was an amalgamation of German goodness. The car is packing an LS1 swap but unfortunately, we couldn’t find the owner to pop the deck lid. Maybe we’ll have to track him down for a feature on the car someday…

Strolling down the green you’d find every generation of Porsche. From the bathtub 356 up to the 991, just about everything that Porsche has made for the street was represented here. The only cars that seemed to be missing were the latest hypercars.

As cool as a factory supercar is, vintage modified is always a bit more interesting. Take for example the West Coast Customs 356. So much has been changed on this car; it’s lower and wider with a more aggressive, custom silhouette. The wheels have also been custom made for this car, CNC machined and period current in appearance.

Another stunning modified Porsche, albeit a bit newer, is the incredible Gunther Werks 400R. Based on the 993 series Porsche, it’s a modern take on the iconic classic. With a more aggressive carbon fiber body housing a larger-displacement 4.0L flat six the 400R is a serious machine.

The detail work inside and out is extensive, something you pay dearly for. Selling for roughly half a million dollars, this is a Porsche you have to really want. Seen here wearing a Gulf livery with a flat finish, it looks like it might just be worth the hefty price tag.

Even in the parking lot surrounding the show, the Porsche theme continued, as did the high prices. Only during car week will you find this many Ferraris and Porsches casually laying around. And parked up next to sticker-bombed 510s…

Heading back into the show we made it a point to find things out of the ordinary. This trailer certainly fit the bill, and just goes to show that even a vintage Porsche can be practical.

There were also a number of solid 914s out at the show, perhaps the best example being this yellow widebody. Of course, for every older, quirky Porsche we saw there was a newer one showing off some rare spec, like this bright green GT3 that appears to get some track time.

This is the awesome thing about a Porsche, though. One-of-a-kind styling, great factory support, a huge and loyal following, all paired with great performance on both the road and the track.

New or old, all things Porsche are in style right now.
