As we get ready to celebrate 75 years of Porsche sports cars at Rennsport Reunion 7, we’re looking forward to another icon joining us at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca – Hot Wheels. Porsche and Hot Wheels began their collaboration in 1970, creating 1/64th scale versions of some of the most legendary Porsche vehicles of all time. For over 50 years, the two iconic brands have worked together to make some of the most eye-catching recreations and inspired scaled-down Porsche vehicles. Let’s take a look at some of the most notable Hot Wheels Porsche creations over the years:
While all these Hot Wheels cars are unique, only a very few earn the distinction of being inducted into the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends™. An elite collection of life-sized cars that represent the absolute best of the best. That being said, we have something special in store for Rennsport Reunion 7. We will see the latest addition to this legendary collection with the reveal of a brand-new Hot Wheels Porsche.
In addition to the reveal of a new legend, families are invited to join us at The Hot Wheels Play Zone. A special onsite area where Porsche and Hot Wheels enthusiasts of all ages can play with Hot Wheels cars and games, and color in Hot Wheels coloring books. There will even be Hot Wheels designers in the Play Zone to lead young ones through various art-based activities.
