Porsche: Driving the dream

How did it all begin? With a phone call. Because when Porsche invites you to live the dream, you can only say yes. And becoming a member of a team with creative individuals from different European countries to experience an unforgettable two-day Porsche adventure, full of adrenaline and unique moments, is a life experience you will have to tell forever...

Day One: The Dream Station

Our meeting point was Constantinople. There, on the Bosphorus, at Soho House, the Dreamers from Central and Eastern Europe gathered. Photographers, people from the arts and culture, sports enthusiasts, and those from the world of media came together to present their dreams through their personal stories at the media event ''Dreamers Stories Live x Porsche on Track.''

After all, Porsche is closely connected to those who have been following their dreams since its founding. When it all started with a dream of Porsche's founder, Ferry Porsche, and his determination to make it happen: "At first, I looked around and couldn't find the car of my dreams. So, I decided to build it myself." And for 75 years now, it continues to inspire others to dream big. This legacy left by Ferry Porsche to Porsche still drives the dreams of the company – and, of course, all the Dreamers.

Dreamers Stories: A Point of Reference

The five speakers, photographer Radka Leitmeritz from the Czech Republic, Porsche race driver Ayhancan Güven from Turkey, photographer and musician Rainer Olbri aka Metsakutsu from Estonia, artist Musya Qeburia from Georgia, and photographer Kosmas Koumianos from Greece, shared their own stories. Through their personal experiences, they inspired us with great expectations to move even further forward. As Radka characterized it: ''When you realize your dream, you don't stop there. You go for the next one.''

At the end of the presentation, a big surprise awaited us: the renowned artist Kiwie Monster, who has collaborated with Porsche for its 75th anniversary, was there. A Porsche 911 with graffiti, specially crafted for this event, would be given as a gift to the winner of ''Porsche on Track.''

Day Two: The Dream Begins

And the dream begins on the Formula 1 track in Constantinople and at the Porsche Driving Center, driving all Porsche models in one day. A unique experience, full of color and driving in style. A dream full of color. And we made it ours for a day.

We divided into four teams, and our two instructors introduced us to the magical world of Porsche driving. The program included off-road driving with Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé, speed control with 911 Turbo S and Boxster 718 Spyder, track driving with 4-door models, Cayenne GTS Coupé, Paramera Turbo S, Taycan GTS, Taycan Turbo, Paramera GTS, and finally, the ultimate experience with 2-door models, 911 Turbo, 911 Turbo S, 911 GT3RS, 718 Boxster GTS, 911 Carrera GTS, and 911 GT3 Touring.

Gripping the steering wheel, inside the track, adrenaline reaches its zenith, combining power, luxury, and speed. At the end of the race, Vivien Nagy emerged as the winner with an impressive time of 16.59, capturing her passion and skill at the wheel and earning, with her unique abilities, the Kiwie Monster's painting depicting a pop Porsche 911. Another chapter of the adventure, where victory reflects determination and passion for Porsche driving.

And as the engines gradually fade away, and the scents of the track dissipate, a magical chapter closes in the fairytale adventure of the Dreamers. It's as if they lived dreams fulfilled with every turn of the steering wheel and every press of the gas pedal.

Every moment, every experience was a page from a fairytale book written with colors, speed, and dreams. And as the chapter closes, the Dreamers leave with their hearts filled with gratitude for the experience they lived, leaving behind traces that compose their unique puzzle, a puzzle made of dreams.
