multiple Porsches driving by

Basically we have been intending to shoot a few location photos for our Saab 9-5 Aero SportWagon high speed test. But as we noticed that there were many Porsches doing their rounds around the Leipzig area, filling the air with euphonic flat-six-exhaust-sounds, we were immediately starting to find out the reason for this. Okay, Porsche cars aren't something rare in Leipzig's northeast district, after all the Porsche Leipzig GmbH is just one Autobahn exit away from here. But this was after all an unusual concentration, even for this part of Saxony's Autostadt (town of cars).

So we decided to follow one to ascertain where they all came from, and we finally arrived at a gathering of about 15 Porsches in front of a hotel, situated on a dead end street. Parking there, Porsches passed us every five minutes and, disappeared in the hotel's underground car park, sadly. Doubtlessly no good preconditions to make a comprehensive photo report which was why we decided to go home to determine what's behind this event. Fortunately we only had 5 minutes to go to reach our headquarters.
