    Weekend Porsche get-together (photos)

    This weeken we got together here as we usually do several times a year for a breakfast, fun drive B-road drive, lunch and some other activety in the afternoon.

     

    In this case after lunch we visited a local car collector's garage that he opened for us. His collection is jaw dropping, he has a huge garage with all of the cars lined-up kind of like Jay Leno's "garage", and all are plugged into a electrical outlet as you can see, because he actually uses most of the cars regularly (kudos!!), no matter the car, and the track cars he  uses for classic regularity races, some were sent to be signed on the body by the original pilots that used them in the original races.

     

     

     

     

     

    Here are some pictures, some pictures are taken by me and other by friends.

    We started out for breakfast in a Hotel next to the Portuguese borden:

     

    The we leave for the first part of the drive, we had some rain but not a problem, these are Porsches Smiley 1

     Nice detail. One of the Rolls was made for a royal family, and you can see that in those cases the "Spirit of Extasis" is not standing but rather is kneeling as a sign for the royals

     

     

     

    Thats it!  Hope you liked the pictures

    Great pictures thanks so much for posting   In that picture of the gullwing you can really see the way the SLS captures the feel of the old one. 


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

    Great pics Carlos, thanks for posting!


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

    I like everything above

    • Great grouping of Porsche models of various types and ages
    • Beautiful scenery
    • Some great cars in the private collection. I love the BMW M1in blue /black. Pity BMW never followed this model up.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

    Beautiful Porsche drive, great people, nice scenery and a finale with a spectacular garage collection! That guy is a true gearhead with so many racing models in there.

    On your drive to the restaurant I spotted a beautiful blue 944, that would be me in there someday again

    These pics made my day, thanks for posting

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

     Great weekend!!! 


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

    Looks like a very nice event once more. The collection is stunning, I assume it isn´t usually open to the public?


    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together

     I'm so glad you guys enjoyed the pictures  

    I was great seeing so many generations of 911 (and the 928 and 944) on the B-roads together, the diferent engine sounds, the diferent body sizes and shapes, etc. From a 964RS to a 996TT, from a 911T to a 9974S, from a 9934S to a 930Turbo. All in all we were about 40 cars. We will be getting together again in a month or two, this time with the drive likely on the spanish coastal side.

    Re: Weekend Porsche get-together (photos)

    @ Carlos: What part of Spain is this exactly? Because it's very beautiful.

    It must be next to Portugal and near a river but on the map there are 2-3 rivers between the two countries Smiley

    Hi Reginos! that's the spot, its the north-western tip of Spain that is above Portugal (Galicia). The two countries are separated by a river (Rio Miño) that flows horizontally west into the Atlantic Ocean. The bridge on the picture I posted was built by Eiffel 125 years ago. The region is a heavily forested area of Spain, mountanous and with large fjords into the Atlantic. The weather in this "corner" is mild with no snow, but quite a bit of rain in winter season, hence the vegetation that is not typical of what some people think of Spain.

     

     

    Here is a picture I took when I got the 997S of were the river meets the ocean separating the two countries (Portugal is across the river, the beaches on the right you can see going upward  are on the Atlantic facing New York, and the river comes from the left)

     

     

    And here are a couple of favorite roads, and off-roads:
