10 Jul 2018 | International News : Thailand

High-powered performances, star-studded celebrity appearances, rare and legendary Porsche sports cars - a haven for enthusiasts and the family to enjoy. With one week to go before the hotly anticipated Sportscar Together Day (SCTD) kicks off, Porsche has revealed the public event's full lineup. The massive gathering will take over the Show DC Oasis Arena in central Bangkok on Saturday, 14th July 2018 from 1:00pm till midnight, as hundreds of Porsche owners and thousands of the brand's fans converge at Porsche's 70th birthday bash.

The Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar will make its appearance at the event
Porsche Asia Pacific, the regional office of the sports car manufacturer, and AAS Auto Service, the sole authorised importer and distributor of Porsche cars in Thailand, warmly invites members of the public to join the event, which is also held in conjunction with the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia one-make sports car racing series at Bangsaen during the same weekend. 

Cars naturally form the heart of this event, with several Porsche Clubs and Das Treffen coming together to create South East Asia's largest 'car park meet'.

Over 200 Porsche vehicles, including 50 Porsche Club cars arriving in an escorted convoy that have come from all over the region, will reunite with the community in one single car park.

On the same piece of tarmac, the seven generations of the 911 exhibit follows the iconic 911 through its model years, from the early 70s classic E-series to the 2014 991-series 50th Anniversary Edition, highlighting the gentle evolution of the car's signature shape since the very first example rolled off the line in 1963. The Super Car Circle features eight of the fastest Porsche sports cars of all time, including the 911 (996) GT2, Porsche Carrera GT and 911 (997) GT3 RS 4.0.

Two special models sit proudly on the main stage. The Porsche 919 Hybrid racing car constructed for use in the Le Mans Prototype 1-Hybrid category of the FIA World Endurance Championship, and the Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar, a technology demonstrator that earned its stripes in one of the world's toughest rallies, completing the 13,800km desert course with a one-two victory in 1986. The legendary Porsche 918 Spyder also makes an appearance, a powerful mid-engine plug-in hybrid sports car that made history as the first series production street-legal car to smash the seven-minute barrier on the Nurburgring.
