History

Born in 2015, Das Renn Treffen follows in the wake of VolksBlast (VOLKSBLAST.COM) – a nearly 20-year- old Vintage Volkswagen Show that was formed by members of the Palmetto Bugs and Wide Five VW car clubs. Originally created to help raise funds for local charities, many of the members who also donated time building houses for Habitat for Humanity realized what an incredible impact an official show could have on the community. VolksBlast had its first show in 1998 in the First National Bank of South Miami parking lot and drew 60 participants and over 100 spectators. Today, the show plays host to over 450 vehicles and 10,000+ spectators from all around the country and has helped to raise over $120,000 since it’s inception. Entering its third year, Das Renn Treffen is quickly becoming the largest and most anticipated Porsche event on the eastern seaboard. Attracting those who’s hearts beat faster at the sight of the Porsche crest, along with their friends and families, the future of Das Renn Treffen is bright.
