The numerous Porsche icons will include models that will be presented for the first time at the Sound Night. The Porsche 962 C, for example, will celebrate its premiere at this year's sound spectacle. Hans-Joachim Stuck won the Sprint championship with this race car in 1986, and at the same time put the new groundbreaking Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission through its paces. At the Sound Night, “Strietzel” Stuck will also look back on the year 1987. In this year, he competed in all five Supercup races at the wheel of the 962 C with start number 17 and a further-developed PDK and ended the season by winning the championship title. Fans all over the world can also look forward to the two-time world rally champion Walter Röhrl. He will present the 924 Carrera GTS Rally, with which he won four overall victories in the German Rally Championship in 1981. To mark the 40th anniversary of the 1981 rally season, the Porsche Heritage and Museum department surprised Walter Röhrl at the beginning of the year with the newly restored gold-black 924 “Monnet” from the time.
Alexander Klein, Head of Vehicle Management and Heritage Experience, will present the 911 (901 No. 57). The red coupé was built in October 1964 as one of the first pro-duction versions of the sports car, still with the type designation 901. Almost exactly 50 years later, the Porsche Museum bought back the rare model – which had been discovered by chance – and returned the thus oldest 911 in the company’s collection to its original condition. The 907 KH, which was produced in the racing department in Plant 1 in 1967 as the successor to the Porsche 910 for endurance races, will also make its debut at the Sound Night. The former hillclimb specialist Rudi Lins will present the 907 KH.
