Strong in the bends: Porsche celebrates 40 years of the transaxle.
The 44th AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix will take place at the Nürburgring from 12 - 14 August 2016. In keeping with tradition, Porsche will be taking part once again this year.
Porsche Classic will be presenting itself on a 14,000 m2 area in the immediate vicinity of the race track. In focus: the Porsche transaxle era. Between 1976 and 1995, Porsche built a generation of Sports Cars that moved away from the proven principles of a Porsche 911 – these are the types 924, 928, 944 and 968. The Porsche engineers in Weissach attempted a new technical beginning with water-cooled front engines and a transaxle at the rear axle. The four model ranges also struck out in a new design direction.
The transaxle models won new fans for Porsche the world over, and sold almost 400,000 units. Behind the success lies a philosophy that is typical for Porsche: the perfect combination of sportiness and everyday usability. Reason enough to make these models the focus of this year’s Porsche presentation at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix.
