The Miami DRT2020 (Das Renn Treffen) Porsche Festival provided a rare chance to view one-of-a-kind Porsches on display. Air Brigade spent the weekend in Miami attending the festivities surrounding DRT2020 including The Collection Cars & Coffee, the DRT2020 VIP Cocktail Party and then the largest Porsche gathering in South Florida with 130 plus Air-Cooled Porsches out of the 500 Porsches on display.
Air Brigade took a video walk-around of the DRT2020 Porsche festival center display area featuring million dollar plus Porsches blocked by unique Porsche 356’s and early Porsche 911’s. The high profile Porsches on display here included a Porsche 918 Spyder, the Miller High Life race-winning Porsche 962 and the Rod Emory Porsche 356 Outlaw Momo RSR.
The Porsche Momo RSR was the cover car of the DRT2020 program new to the event this year. The Emory RSR is the result of a Porsche 356 being merged with a Porsche 964 to create a Porsche 356 Outlaw with a G50 transmission and a 4-cylinder 911 Turbo engine. The Emory Outlaw Porsche 356 RSR features Momo center lock wheels to set off the flat gray sheet metal. The engine is the centerpiece of this Outlaw as Rod Emory scanned a Porsche 964 engine, cut off two cylinders and cast a 4-cylinder engine block that can produce a four-cylinder Turbo engine featuring two Garrett Turbochargers that produce 393 horsepower for this light nimble chassis.
A personal highlight was the appearance of a red Porsche 904 Carrera GTS. I first spotted this car at my pre-viewing when the cars were entering the show field. I always like to attend the arrivals of the cars because you hear, smell and see the Porsches as they are moving. It provides an additional to seeing a red Porsche driving; one also hears it rumbling with its straight pipes with the smell of exhaust fumes all around. A Porsche 904 Carrera GTS sells for about $1.6 million so it is not a Porsche that you see on the streets very often.
Porsche dominated endurance between 1984 and 1991 when it produced 91 Porsche 962 prototype race cars. One of the most famous liveries of the Porsche 962 was the Miller High Life 962 driven by Derek Bell, John Andretti and Bob Wolleck winning the 1989 Daytona 24 Hours in Derek Bell’s final race. This Porsche 962 was a privateer team run by famous Porsche racer Jim Busby who beat the factory Porsche 962 with the Miller High Life Porsche 962.
In addition to the three noted cars the center highlight alley of DRT2020 also featured a Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche GT2, various pristine Porsche 356’s, one of seven existing Porsche 944 Turbo GTR, a Singer 911, Porsche 356 GT and a black 911 RUF Turbo, All are shown in the video on the Air Brigade You Tube Channel.
