How a Stefan Bogner celebrates 70 years of Porsche sports cars

You had the video produced on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Porsche. What was the idea?

It's about 15 rare Porsche cars driving around the Grossglockner. What more do you want? It was a meeting among friends of a special kind.

Why was it so special?

The family atmosphere among the Porsche fans, who brought their cars to the location for the Curves/Grossglockner Special, was especially pleasant. With the exception of Mission E and 991.2 Monte Carlo, all cars were privately owned. And when a RSK, 904, 906, 956, Porsche ST and some more enjoy the pass road, it feels like Christmas and birthday together.

Well, actually it was a birthday you were celebrating.

That's right. The motto was: »Thats how we celebrate a birthday«. A birthday serenade for Porsche at this place so important for the sports car manufacturer.

What fascinates you about Porsche?

Every Porsche, every model is a work of art that can be used every day. Except the race cars, of course. But with a 906 you can also go to the bakery.

What do you feel when you're sitting in a Porsche?

When I get into one of my Porsche, I drive mentally to Nice and not to the office, for me a Porsche is a place of inner peace. I have also made many friends around the world through the brand.
