The Icons of Porsche took over Dubai this week with over 27,000 fans attending the gathering over two days on 25-26 November.

Fans of classic cars, arts and culture were on hand to commemorate 75 years of Porsche sportscars and 60 years of the iconic 911 model.

Highlights included the first public display of the new Panamera and the unveiling of a special ‘Sonderwunsch’ 911 Turbo that paid homage to the first-ever 911 Turbo.

“The passion and strength of the Porsche community in our region was again on display at this year’s Icons of Porsche,” said Dr Manfred Bräunl, Chief Executive Officer of Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE.

“Our third edition of this event was our biggest yet. We would like to thank every single event attendee for joining our celebration.

“In particular, I want to thank every Porsche owner who exhibited their car on-site. We truly appreciate their support and commitment to sharing their ‘dream’ sports car with our festival audience. This year Icons of Porsche offered more colour, more cars, more fans and more passion than ever before. This sensational event is now not only the biggest classic car gathering in the Middle East, it has cemented itself as one of the ‘must do’ events on the global car culture events calendar.”

Regional premiere at this year’s Icons of Porsche included the 718 Spyder RS and Vision 357 Speedster concept. Also on hand were the all-electric Mission X hypercar concept, the 911 S/T and a host of cars from the Porsche Museum collection.

Event attendees enjoyed attractions from the eight festival zones: 60 Years of 911, Esports Arena, The Pit Lane, The Boulevard, Mission X, Porsche Museum heritage truck, Art Beach and the new Panamera Cube.
