Following its successful debut in 2023 at Luftgekhlt 9 on Mare Island near San Francisco, Air|Water will henceforth become its own event, separated from the groundbreaking Luft series (which will continue to cater exclusively to air-cooled Porsches). The first independent Air|Water event will take place in Costa Mesa, CA and tickets can be purchased from air-water.com. Owners of every kind of street-driven and racing Porsche can register and enter to display their vehicle at the event.
Unlike the incredibly successful Luftgekhlt show series, which changes venue for each occasion, Air|Water plans to call Costa Mesa its home for the foreseeable future and has the space to expand its offering into new experiences for the Porsche enthusiast. The venue functions as the perfect backdrop for what will certainly be one of the largest single brand automotive days, with a diverse format catering to some of the most legendary personalities and all walks of vintage and modern Porsche cars.
Air|Water is about race and street, vintage and modern, two- and four-door, combustion and electric, sports cars and SUV, air- and water-cooled engines. Attendees can expect a family environment with plenty of food and beverage options, vendors, aftermarket specialists, custom builders and restoration icons.
The shows model mix was previewed at last years Northern California event, with everything from the latest 911 GT3 RS to the current Porsche Penske 963 race car, as well as vintage 356s, survivor 914s, transaxle 944s, overland Cayennes, and much more. Some of the most storied race cars from Porsches past will continue to stand out as fan favorites, and this will remain a headline feature of Air|Water.
Owners who wish to display their street or race Porsche at Air|Water should register via air-water.com when purchasing admission tickets. Areas within the venue will be curated for specific storylines.
As for the tenth edition of Luftgekhlt, dedicated exclusively to air-cooled Porsche models, it will host its tenth Anniversary show later in 2024. As is tradition, the celebration will commemorate another unforgettable experience for visitors. In the meantime, owners of air-cooled models are invited to join the festivities at Air|Water on April 27 in Costa Mesa.

In the Porsche vernacular, Luftgekuhlt represents all the air-cooled cars in the manufacturers history, from the Pre-A 356 through the 993 model line, which ended in 1998. A true Porsche happening, Luftgekuhlt is an experiential car culture event centered around a tightly curated list of historically significant or interesting cars, both street and race. There is no set formula for our events, but we're excited by cool venues, fun people, and creative expression, so you can bet those elements will always be included. The team strives to develop wild ideas that celebrate the passion we have for all things air-cooled, including exciting collaborations with likeminded people and brands.
