Saturday Mornings usually start with firing up my air-cooled Porsche 911 and targeting a Cars & Coffee to attend. These gatherings have been one of the causalities of self-isolation. We all have been locked away long enough without our Porsche gatherings.
The Virtual World is providing options today to capture the spirit, camaraderie and socializing without compromising social distancing rules. Air Brigade will be attending two Virtual Cars & Coffee events that you may want to consider.
Worldwide Virtual Cars & Coffee
Saturday, April 18 @ 10:00 a.m.
If you don’t know Holt Motorsports and you are in the market for an air-cooled Porsche, then you should know them. They deal in high quality models for sale. I keep watching their site; http://www.holtmotorsports.com for the RS America that I am on the search for. My problem is that they deal with much higher quality cars than the driver that I am pursuing. Holt has a terrific online Instagram presence where they have been promoting their planned Virtual Car Show scheduled for today. I am not sure if any of us know what to expect, but let’s try it and see.
Here is how you access the Virtual Car Show using the Zoom app.

Magnus Walker and Air-Cooled Porsches Instagram Live
If you are into air-cooled Porsches you probably know Magnus Walker and his famous #277 Porsche 911 in addition to his $7 million Porsche collection that was recently featured on Business Insider. Magnus has a big Instagram presence @magnuswalker that you should follow. He regularly conducts Instagram Live events that are fun to log onto to his perspective on Porsche matters. There is nothing scheduled today (at the moment) but he has much more spontaneity in his broadcasts so you just need to go on Instagram on a regular basis and see if he is promoting an upcoming event.
