Edmonton Motorshow

    The 8th annual Luxury & Supercar Weekend brought together a selection of some of the most stunning vintage and exotic cars. As one of Vancouver’s most anticipated event for any car fanatic, it is no surprise that this was the biggest one yet.

    Kicking Off Luxury & Supercar Weekend

    This event kicked-off at Inform Interiors on Friday, September 9th. Attendees were surrounded by great people, incredible cars, and delicious food. In addition, we also heard from Christopher Pagani about the new Pagani Huayra which was also showcased at Luxury & Supercar Weekend.

    The Weekend

    The first day of Luxury & Supercar Weekend brought some unwelcome showers but that did not detract the dedicated car aficionados that wait for this weekend every year. Weissach and Lotus of Vancouver had a surprise for the public, three incredible Lotus’s on display. The LF1, and two Lotus Evora 400’s – definitely not a sight you see every day!

    In celebration of its inaugural year, the Porsche Rally played host to the Porsche Rally Pop Up Party at our Weissach Clubhouse.

    This event brought a full house with sponsors such as Pinnacle Vodka, Suntory Whisky TOKI, Mission Hill Family Estate Wines, Luxury Alliance Group, iGlo, and Trove. All registered drivers of the upcoming Porsche Rally in September were in attendance. View pictures below of this incredible evening.

    porsche’s 1,000,000th 911 sports car rolls off the production line

    Porsche makes its 1,000,000th 911 sports car and it is magnificent.

    Vehicle number ‘one-million’ rolled off the company’s Zuffenhausen production line, trimmed specially to reflect the first 911 from 1963, with Dr. Wolfgang Porsche sat in the driver’s seat. It’s painted in an attractive ‘irish’ green colour, with trim and badging contrasting in gold, and a luxurious interior featuring a houndstooth seat trim, plus a wooden steering wheel.

    Based on a 911 ‘Carrera S’, the 1,000,000th Porsche ‘911’ is powered by a 414 bhp turbocharged engine and is capable of 191 mph, while accelerating from 0-62 mph in 4.3 s. 

    Purist-Porsche-fans can also relax – it’s mated to a manual gearbox. The ‘911’ vehicle ‘one’ was powered by a 128 bhp, reaching a top speed of 131 mph with an 8.3 sec 0-62 time. Quickly establishing itself as an icon of ’60s cool. Now, it is considered as symbolic of all things related to Germany and automobiles. Over half of Porsche’s [...]
