LUFT-GE-KÜHLT / LƱFTꞬƏˌKYːLT / AIR-COOLED SOUL.
In the Porsche vernacular, Luftgekühlt represents all of the air-cooled cars from the manufacturer’s history. This spans an extraordinary period of vehicle technical development from the company’s inception in 1931 through to 1998.
The aviation inspired air-cooled engine requires a unique configuration which creates the soul stirring sound that bonds us together.
Predictability is something we resist. Our taste is diverse but we look to tell a unique and complete story that appeals to the Porschephiles and first timers alike. We embrace the cars and owners from the full breadth of Porsche’s air-cooled history. We specially highlight not only the new kids in the scene but celebrate the most storied competition cars in existence.
Beyond the cars themselves, we feature the engineers, designers, executives, racers and builders who have sculpted perhaps the most well-loved automotive brand on the planet.
