From the creators of Luftgekühlt comes the largest single-brand automotive experience to hit Southern California. It embarks on a fresh format that traces Porsche’s journey from its inaugural moments to the contemporary masterpieces and most cutting-edge examples of today.

Following its successful debut in 2023 at Luftgekühlt 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 Owners of every kind of street-driven and racing Porsche can register and enter to display their vehicles at the event.

Costa Mesa home base

Unlike the incredibly successful Luftgekühlt 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 is 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.

Proven in NorCal

The show’s model mix was previewed at last year’s 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 Porsche‘s 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 when purchasing admission tickets. Areas within the venue will be curated for specific storylines.



Luftgekühlt 10 is coming

As for the tenth edition of Luftgekühlt, dedicated exclusively to air-cooled Porsche models, it will host its tenth Anniversary show later in 2024. A true Porsche happening, Luftgekühlt is an experiential car culture event centered around a tightly curated list of historically significant or interesting cars, both street and race..
