Can’t believe that 2018 is halfway over. This past Sunday, Caffeine and Octane held their sixth show of 2018. Held at the Perimeter Mall outside of Atlanta in Dunwoody, Georgia, Caffeine and Octane allows car enthusiasts from all over to bring their cars and to show them off.
This Caffeine and Octane was a little bit different… just a little bit. At every show, you can expect Porsche to have a presence. One of the sponsors of the show happens to be Porsche Atlanta Dealership and they always bring vehicles for the crowd to enjoy and some Porsche owners park their personal cars in the Porsche lot as well…
But there were still more Porsches than usual and I think that the guest of honor has a lot to do with it. Yes, the Porsche Sensei himself, Magnus Walker came to Caffeine and Octane. Let’s backtrack for a quick second- I referred to him as the Porsche Sensei because the definition of a Sensei is one who comes before. However, in general usage, it means to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in some other skill.
Although I left Caffeine and Octane way before Magnus did, the interesting part of all was that he did the one thing he’s been doing for decades- appreciated the many Porsches (especially the ones with the 911 body) that showed up and bonded with the owners of each and every Porsche. Aside from that, he also conversed and took photos with many of the spectators there. It’s always great to meet another automotive enthusiast- slightly different niche but it’s within the same industry.
Enough talking because I know you would rather see some photos..
