Porsche Rennsport IV Reunion Poster Revealed

Poster by Dennis Simon

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.

Here expert teams tear down the totaled remains and pulls out the salvageable parts including the engines, transmissions, and seats, anything that wasnt damaged in the impact.

Now the teams will have three new Porsches to tackle in “Porsche in Pieces”

a 2002 Boxster

a first-generation 911

and a  997 Carrera

Each car has components that customers have back ordered,

so these fresh wrecks will need to come apart now.

It’s not about us, but we did play a supporting role….In this town, that counts, after all there is no business, like show business.

The lady producer, Denise Prichard,  said:   you guys are going to be on TV,  I was thinking….I should have brought my clown shoes…..Long story short, we have been commissioned to built a turbo engine for this car, Nat Geo was following this car as one of the three they were going to feature on their show.

Cut !!       again, from the top,……..it was an experience, every move was done three or four times, I think  they should make transmission lifting an Olympic sport, after installing that G50 4 times, we felt we deserve some gold , and It is not easy working with a mic taped you chest.
