Icons of Porsche Sees Over 27,000 Fans Celebrate 75 Years of Porsche Sportscars in Dubai

The Icons of Porsche in Dubai have again exceeded expectations, with over 27,000 fans attending the gathering over two days on November 25–26.

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

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

The 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.

The skyline around the Dubai Design District had a noticeable addition over the weekend, as an inflatable Porsche 911 coupe towered over the Icons of Porsche precinct and was visible from many kilometres away.

The bright red figure, positioned in the middle of the festival, officially achieved a new Guinness World Record for the ‘largest inflatable vehicle’.

Measuring in at a length of almost 20 metres, a height of over six meters and a width of over eight metres, the gigantic balloon is based on the shape of the first generation F-Series 911, in production from 1963 to 1973.

Representatives of Guinness World Records were on-site to witness the spectacle, presenting the certificate to record it as the world’s ‘Largest Inflatable Vehicle’. This acts as a tribute to the rich history and legacy of Porsche in its 75th Anniversary year, as well as the 911 model itself, which celebrates its 60th year in 2023.
