Today, Porsche Cars North America took the veil off the official Rennsport Reunion V artwork that will symbolize the latest iteration of the gathering of historic and contemporary Porsche race cars, and their drivers, September 25 to 27, 2015.
This year’s event will feature, as a special highlight, the story of Porsche at Le Mans. The poster depicts three of the most significant protagonists: the 356 of 1951, first Porsche entrant and first class winner at the famed 24 hour race, the 917 which garnered the first overall victory with Hans Herrmann and Dick Attwood in 1970, and the 919 hybrid prototype with which Porsche returned to the top category of sports car racing in 2014 after a 16 year absence.
The painting is the works of renowned automotive artist, Dennis Simon, who created the posters for three of the previous four venues. They show off the 1981 factory 935 long tail, named Moby Dick, in Martini colors and Al Holbert’s 911 RSR from 1974 (2011), the 917 and 962 in Gulf and Löwenbräu liveries (2007), and the three 908s as they cross the finish line of the 1970 24 Hours of Daytona (2004).
Additional details about the Porsche Rennsport Reunion V along with images from the first four Rennsport Reunions will be published on the official Porsche Rennsport Reunion V website.
