The cars rumbled in bright and early to bask together in the morning sunshine as the guttural ensemble of air cooled internal combustion serenaded the parking lot and echoed off the walls of Deus Ex Machina in Venice, California on Sunday the 7th of September, 2014 as we played host to Luftgekühlt – A celebration of Zuffenhausen’s finest air-cooled cars. And quite a celebration it was, thanks to the thoughtful orchestration by Porsche factory racer Patrick Long and Howie Idelson who assembled the all-star cast of some of the rarest icons and familiar Porschephiles in the arena. Needless to say, the sight of these beautiful machines thoughtfully aligned and squeezed into our bite-sized downtown Venice Beach parking lot was glorious to behold. And not soon forgotten. Limited edition event tees and event posters are now available online. A special thanks to all who made it out to Deus Ex Machina with their luftgekühlts… Alwin Springer, 1964 356 C Coupe Rod Emory, 1956 356 Outlaw Speedster and two other 'Emory Outlaws' Jeff Zwart, 1971 2.2 911ST African Safari Rally Car Magnus Walker, Outlaw 1971 911T, 1979 911 SC, 930 Ray Crawford, 1970 R Gruppe 911 Bill Fleischman, 1973 911RS Dorian Valenzuela, 1988 Singer 911 RS Chad McQueen, 1969 911ST Rob Morgan, 1969 911S Paul Newman Race Car Jerry Murray, 1956 356 Coupe Patrick Dempsey, 1963 356 Cabriolet Kenny Jacobs, 1964 356 Coupe Alan Benjamin, 1956 356 Speedster and 1995 993 GT2 Strasse Efrain Oliveres, 1968 912 PMNA, Porsche Truck Rolly Resos, 1966 911R Nicolas Hunziker, 1968 911T Bill Manual, 1969 911T Nick Phyllos, 1973 911S Sasha Glaeser, 1989 911 Coupe Tim and Elliott Skeer, 911T Loren Beggs, 1979 930 Sascha Kiesbuley, 1982 911 SC Marlon Goldberg, 1984 911 Cabriolet Johnny Canavis, 1984 911 Coupe Anthony Rimicci, 1984 911 Coupe Daniel Desure, 1986 911 Coupe Fabian Becasse, 1991 964 Eric Schwartz, 1997 993 C2S Mike Ernst, 1999 993 Turbo Ethan Kuhl, 1973 914 2.7RS Porsche AG who generously provided the 1979 paint-to-spec 930 Turbo
