To celebrate the 60th anniversary of its arrival in America, Porsche has launched a search to find the oldest Porsches in the nation. In addition to searching for the great-granddaddy of them all, Porsche wants to identify the oldest Porsches in 12 model categories, from the 356 to the newest generation of Boxsters and Caymans.
What’s the lure, beyond bragging rights? A special badge and inclusion on Porsche’s 60th anniversary website, for one thing. Not only that, but the oldest U.S.-market cars from each of 12 models could be photographed and included in the American exhibit that opens October 12 at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, the automaker says. There’s also the chance that one car will be chosen to share the Porsche display at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.
The organizers will have to see some proof of your car’s age, of course, but they’re offering some help through the website. For instance, “Perhaps your old 924 has black and white checkered flag insets on the seat inserts and door panels? Only the first few to come to the U.S. had this feature – a sign that you might have a Porsche with winner potential.” Entries will be accepted from now through October 1, and complete contest guidelines are at the website. Good luck, and may the oldest Porsches win.
