Porsche Cars North America has confirmed the next Porsche Rennsport Reunion will take place next year. Conceived by Brian Redman and Porsche Cars North America’s longstanding press spokesperson Bob Carlson in 2001, Rennsport was created to celebrate the racing heritage of Porsche. They envisioned an event at which drivers and enthusiasts could gather to celebrate and pay tribute to the people and cars that have helped build the Porsche legacy. Since its inaugural event at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut over 20 years ago, Rennsport has continuously grown in appeal, drawing in 80,000 fans over the course of the last event in 2018 (see our November 2018 issue) at Laguna Seca. It only takes place occasionally and the seventh event will take place in 2023.

Porsche racing heritage will be celebrated – from the boldest and most exciting Porsche cars to the people responsible for designing them, to the drivers who took the cars to their limits. All will gather for an event that promises to celebrate not only Porsche’s past and present, but to capture a glimpse into the future, on both the track and on the road. The theme, dates and location of Rennsport VII will be announced soon.
“We’re all excited to be able to announce the return of the Rennsport Reunion, which is always a highlight of Porsche motorsports enthusiasm and heritage” said Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America Inc. “Rennsport Reunion has grown quickly over the years into a truly one-of-a-kind experience of sight, sound and emotions. For a few days, it feels like everyone thrilled by the brand is united in one place, on and off the track, as one Porsche family. We’ll announce the date and location soon, but this much I can share already: Our ambition is to make Rennsport Reunion VII the best one yet.”
