Imagine… hundreds of Porsche cars past and present at one spot, the ‘orchestra’ of engines revving to the redline, accompanied by tyres squealing their way to the limits of physics. And, of course, this being gastronomical Thailand, the smells: a heady aroma of food, glorious food. This is what can be expected at the Sports Car Together Day (SCTD) organised by Porsche Asia-Pacific in celebration of 70 years of Porsche sportscars.
The carmaker is inviting members of the public to join the festivities at the Show DC Oasis Arena in central Bangkok on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 1 pm till midnight. By day, SCTD is set to gear itself towards family-friendly activities, with a Porsche Virtual Reality experience and E-Performance showcase, Kids Driving School and hot-lap rides in the 918 Spyder. As part of a global tribute tour, the 919 Hybrid will make a special stop-over at SCTD to be shown off to fans.
For nourishment, the Porsche Curves Cafe, a typical German beer garden and food stalls set up throughout the venue, will serve up the best of German and of local cuisine. As night falls, the atmosphere will become more pumped up with the Porsche by Night festival, with live DJ sets and other celebrity performances.
Another 200+ privately-owned vehicles, arriving from across Thailand and in convoys from Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Singapore, are also expected to make their appearance. They will join ‘Das Treffen’, expected to be Southeast Asia’s biggest Porsche reunion coming together to rival the established meets in the US, Europe and Australasia.
SCTD follows the opening of the ‘70 Years Porsche Sports Cars’ special exhibition in Stuttgart on June 8. The festival in Bangkok will be one of a series of high-powered events organised worldwide by the German carmaker as a celebratory fete of its glorious 70-year history.
