ATLANTA – March 18, 2011. Today, Porsche Cars North America took the veils off of the official Rennsport Reunion IV artwork that will symbolize the world’s greatest gathering of historic and contemporary Porsche race cars and their drivers October 14 to 16, 2011. Because this year’s event will feature as a special highlight the decades-long success story of the 911 race cars the poster depicts two of the most exciting protagonists, the 1981 factory 935 long tail in Martini colors and Al Holbert’s 911 RSR from 1974.
The painting is the works of renowned automotive artist, Dennis Simon (www.centuryofspeed.com ) who created the posters for two of the previous venues. They show off the mighty 917 and 962 in Gulf and Löwenbräu livery (2007) and the three 908s as they cross the finish line of the 1970 24 Hours of Daytona (2004). Both posters are now collectors’ items and the new one will likely be no different.
