PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
At Monterey's West Coast Summer Concours (formerly known as the Monterey Historic's) PCA members will again have the opportunity to participate in or attend a cooperative concours event hosted by the Porsche Club of America, BMW CCA, and the Mercedes Benz Club of America. The event will take place on Aug. 19, 2011 at Rancho Canada as part of the All German marque celebration known as Legends of the Autobahn.

In the inaugural event, all three car clubs worked well together to display a dazzling variety of special automobiles from Germany. PCA enthusiasts were treated to a special mix of Porsche's last year with the top concours prize from all three clubs going to a pristine 911S belonging to Joe Shumacher.

Based on last year's success, plans are underway for an even larger showing and celebration this year. All PCA members are welcome….and….whether you’d like to compete in the concours, display your car or just enjoy beautiful cars and camaraderie, please make plans to attend. Video from last year's event.  For more information or register for the Legends of the Autobahn event, click here or contact PCA National Office: admin@pca.org or PCA Zone 7 Representative Sharon Neidel: sharonneidel@yahoo.com

It would aim to fill the gap between the €237,600 ($338,500) GT2 RS, the top end of the 911 line, and the €768,000 918 Spyder hybrid. More

If one paints Le Mans as a big race-themed party, the Nürburgring event is its debauched sibling - anything goes. The Germans are known for their exactitude, almost to the point of being anal - this race is unadulterated mayhem and, arguably, the wild west of motor racing. More
