On Saturday (18 September) the first ever concert of high-powered engines will take place online, with the livestreaming of the first fully digital Porsche Sound Night ‘Next Level’. At 17:00 (CEST), the Porsche Museum will start the engines of 20 carefully chosen racing cars and series production vehicles from the company’s collection, livestreaming the whole show free online.

The interactive event will be broadcast around the globe in German, English and French via the website www.soundnacht.porsche.de and on Porsche’s official feeds on YouTube and LinkedIn.

The Porsche Heritage and Museum department has pulled together a thrilling online programme that will, for the first time, take place at both the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen and the Weissach Development Centre, where tribe leader Mark Webber will be host.

Many of the cars on the line-up are making their Sound Night debut. The Porsche 962 C, for example, has never been part of the event before. It was in this car that Hans-Joachim ‘Strietzel’ Stuck won the Sprint championship in 1986, and at the same time put the new and ground-breaking Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission through its paces. Stuck, who will be on stage with the 962 C, will also look back on the year 1987, when he competed in all five Supercup races in the car with the starting number 17, and went on to win the championship title.

Fans around the world can also look forward to the two-time world rally champion Walter Röhrl being on stage with the 924 Carrera GTS Rally, with which he won four overall victories in the German Rally Championship 40 years ago.

Meanwhile Alexander Klein, Head of Vehicle Management and Heritage Experience, will present the 911 (901 No. 57). The red coupé, built in October 1964, is one of the first production versions of the sports car, which originally had the type designation 901. Half a century later, the Porsche Museum bought back the rare model – which had been discovered by chance – and returned the oldest 911 in the company’s collection to its original condition. The 907 KH, which was produced in the racing department of Werk 1 in 1967 as the successor to the Porsche 910 for endurance races, will also make its debut at the Sound Night, with former hillclimb specialist Rudi Lins doing the honours.

Current highlights from the motorsport world will also make an appearance, with works driver Pascal Wehrlein set to drive the Porsche 99X Electric on the running-in and test track at Weissach. The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team 2021 has been fielding the 99X Electric in its second Formula E season.

During the Sound Night, viewers can submit questions, some of which will be passed on for the stars on stage to answer. Those watching will also get the opportunity to vote interactively on estimation and knowledge questions.

  • Sounds like Saturday night into Sunday morning around here when all the Bro’s got their load on, and their SuzuYamHarley or StangChargeMaro blasting out of the saloon parking lot; then come the souped up scooters at 3am; like a weed eater with a urethral cramp. I’d really like to know where they live, drive by about 8am with “Ride of the Valkyries” turned up to 11.
