From the big screen to the biggest Porsche gathering, Transformers’ 911 ‘Mirage’ is the star of the show.
When it comes to creating buzz in the auto and entertainment industries, nothing does it quite like a mashup of legendary sports cars and iconic action film characters. This September, the Autobot Mirage and its Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 (964) movie car are set to grace the world’s largest Porsche gathering, Rennsport Reunion 7, after making a grand appearance in “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.” Fans can feast their eyes on this dynamic duo alongside other Transformers legends like Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal, and even attend a special screening of the blockbuster film.
Ayesha Coker, Vice President of Marketing for Porsche Cars North America, couldn’t be more thrilled. She commemorates the effort of the Porsche Classic team in restoring the car to functionality post-filming, saying, “It’s a significant piece of Porsche history, and there’s no better stage than Rennsport Reunion 7 to showcase it.”
The rarity of the 911 Carrera RS 3.8 can’t be overstated, with Porsche producing only 55 units for the entire globe. To protect these vintage gems, the film used five movie set cars that superficially replicate the real deal. An authentic engine sound was recorded from a real 911 RS 3.8 to make the movie as accurate as possible. Each picture car had a unique function, from executing high-speed backward driving to intricate stunts, illustrating the efforts taken to produce a film experience that resonates with movie lovers and automotive enthusiasts. If you’re one of the lucky guests attending Porsche’s Rennsport Reunion 7 event, make sure to look out for Mirage and the rest of the Transformers crew.
