It was a morning full of wet, but the dedicated and brave came anyway.

The all new 2017 Porsche Panamera made its Hawaii debut courtesy of Porsche of Hawaii. Boasting new engine packages, interior and exterior restyling, the completely redesigned sedan may be a winner. Porsche representative Ashe Eyre was on hand to answer questions and brought a beautiful white model for exhibit.

Many thanks go to John Meyers and the Porsche Club of Hawaii for hosting this event. They helped with traffic control and the door prize giveaways. Eric Baranda of 76 Hawaii was also on hand to cover the event with videographer Allan Fang. Finally, mahalos go to Gabor Paczolay for his help with photography.

The long anticipated debut of the latest Fast and Furious movie opened with a private screening this past Thursday at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium in Iwilei.

Thanks to 76 Hawaii and iHeart Media four Cars and Coffee supporters were invited to attend.

According to Mark Danao, “Hold your piss, otherwise you’ll miss the axxxtion!”

It’s that good!

The latest in the Fast and Furious franchise is currently playing at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium (735 B Iwilei Rd., Honolulu HI 96817).

They Defied the Storm for Cars and Coffee

posted in: Meets | 0

Despite threats of rain diehard car guys and gals filled the Ala Moana Cars and Coffee on Sunday morning, March 5th. Participation topped 100 vehicles of all makes, eras and genres.

There were Porsches-a-plently, as expected since the Porsche Club of Hawaii sponsored the day’s event. High end exotics gave the crowd lots of eye candy. On the other end of the spectrum a good number of old school and classic American and Japanese cars represented themselves well.

The morning ended with door prize presentations of 76 gas gift cards, a Porsche Calendar and an Auto Concierge detail package.

Until next time… for the defiant among us, here’s a throwback to a time not too long ago. A great car tune to have.
