A local chapter of the Porsche Club of America is hosting its yearly show in Kirkland this weekend. The Pacific NW Region of the Porsche Club of America’s 4th annual Porsche Show at Carillon Point will have hundreds of Porsche vehicles, yachts in the adjacent marina, food, music, and more.

“Seeing all the cars in a beautiful setting on Lake Washington with the marina, mountains and beautiful scenery and the presenters enjoying their cars, other peoples’ cars and just being together in a great setting,” said Dennis Root, Concours Committee chair for the Pacific Northwest region of Porsche Club of America.

The 2016 All Porsche Grand Display will cost $10 and be open to the public between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18. All proceeds for the Porsche show will be donated to the EvergreenHealth hospital Uncompensated Care Program as charity.

“Our club donates approximately $25-$30,000 per year to a number of worthy causes. This includes providing over half of the budget for Western Washington University Vehicle Research’s annual car build,” Root said. “It is a true joy to enjoy our great Porsche automobiles and to be able to give back to our community.”

More than 2,700 people are members of the Pacific Northwest region, or Zone 7, of the Porsche Club of America and hail from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, half of Montana, Alaska and Canada from the Rocky Mountains east and up to the Arctic.

This year commemorates the 20th Anniversary of the Porsche Boxster and the 40th Anniversary of Front-Engine, Trans-axle cooled vehicles such as the 924, 944, 928 and 968 models.

On top of all that, it’s the 40th Anniversary of the 912E, a one-year only Porsche model from 1976. The vehicle is based on the 911S of that year and of which only 2,099 were made solely for sale in the United States.

Also included in the event will be classes on car show and Concours etiquette, such as Preparing for and Presenting in Concours, which are open to all.

The 2016 All Porsche Grand Display at Carillion Point will also have live jazz music played by the Seattle Teen Music Program, along with having recorded music, merchandise from Porsche Bellevue, car parts, and plenty of Carillon Point restaurants open in the area.

“We will have cars here that are worth $6,000 to $10,000 and we will also have cars that are worth several hundred thousand dollars and even over $1 million,” Root said. “Everyone has the same good time and all are welcomed into our club equally.”
