The good folks at Porsche are celebrating 60 years in the United States by searching for the oldest Porsches in 12 model categories, including the oldest Porsche of them all.
The 12 models include the 356, 911, 912, 914, 924, 928, 944, 968, Boxster, Cayenne, Carrera GT, and Cayman.
A couple of the perks will include exhibition-quality images to be featured at the "Sixty Years of Porsche in America" exhibit opening Oct. 12 at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Plus an exclusive badge from the museum. One vehicle also may be selected for display at the Porsche stand during this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show alongside the company’s newest models.
In addition to the nationwide search, Porsche is conducting an essay contest for owners and enthusiasts to pour out their love for the brand. The contest will be open to entries until Nov. 1, with 20 winning stories selected by a special panel of Porsche judges. Fans will then vote online for their favorites from the list of 20 finalists. The three entries with the most votes will win an all-expense-paid trip the Porsche Sport Driving School in Birmingham, Ala.
