What to expect from Retro Classics in Stuttgart

View Gallery

Stuttgart is of course the home base for Mercedes and Porsche. This weekend is Retro Classics and both brands have assembled an interesting program on their stands.

The big news from Porsche is of course the 75-year anniversary of the sports car brand. As a result, Porsche will bring the ‘number 1’ 356 show car to the stand. Other cars Porsche puts the spotlight on are the 550 Spyder, as the one Maglioli used to win the 1956 Targa Florio, the 356 SL, the restored Dakar 959 and one of the TAG Porsche powered McLaren F1s.

Bernhard & Stuck

To represent the (Super)Cup history, the Porsche 996 GT3 Cup is present, as is Timo Bernhard, winner of the 2001 Supercup with the 996. Bernhard and Hans-Joachim Stuck will hold a talk on Porsche, followed by a meet & greet session on Saturday 25th. During the Retro Classics weekend, the Porsche Museum has reduced the entry prices.

Over at Mercedes, the Mercedes Museum and Mercedes Classic provide support for the many clubs the brand has. “Worldwide, there are some 80 Mercedes clubs with around 100,000 members,” Mercedes Classic head Marcus Breitschwert says. In the coming weeks, you can expect a longer interview we had with Breitschwert on our website.
