Classic Porsches cruise into Santa Fe

-A A +A

More than 250 classic Porsche sports cars will descend on Santa Fe through Oc t. 13 for the “356 Registry West Coast Holiday 2013.”
The Holiday is an annual event sponsored by the Porsche 356 Registry, a nationwide club dedicated to preserving and driving early Porsche sports cars from the 1950s and ‘60s.
On Oct. 12 on the Santa Fe Plaza and surrounding streets, including Lincoln, East Palace, San Francisco and Washington the public will be able to admire these classy automobiles. An elaborate plan to fit all 250 some odd cars has been created to show off the Porsches at their best. Placement of the cars will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the display will conclude at 1:30 p.m.
Other events planned for the club members include scenic drives to nearby northern New Mexico attractions such as the high road to Taos, Los Alamos and Santuario de Chimayó. There will also be a precision driving event, a parking lot autocross and a timed event around a course of traffic cones.
The Club’s Zia Chapter, which was founded in Santa Fe and counts members throughout New Mexico, is the local sponsoring group. The event’s host hotel will be La Fonda at the Plaza. For additional information visit, westcoastholiday.org.
