I love Cars and Caffe because it draws the entire enthusiast spectrum, everything from beater Miatas to classic muscle cars to heavily modified cars to million dollar hypercars. It’s a real show of enthusiasm for the automobile, and there’s no other show quite like it.
I’m a firm believer that car people are largely the same, just at different socio-economic levels. The person in the E46 M3 would be the one in the Ferrari 488 if he had more money, and vice versa if the person in the Ferrari had less money. You can really see that when you go to a show like this.
Naturally, I tend to focus more on the exotics in my photos, despite me being the guy rolling up to the show in a Miata. Rest assured, I’d do the same with a Pagani if I had those sort of means.
Lots of people really love cars, and that becomes crystal clear when you’re at this show. There is hope yet for the enthusiast automobile!
Enjoy the gallery.

Viewing the world’s most exotic cars against the Manhatten Skyline, it’s a great premise for a show. That’s why Driven By Purpose chooses to hold this event in Liberty State Park, and it draws quite a turnout.
The show this year had to contend with the threat of rain in the area, but it was only overcast at the show itself. A good number of cars showed up and the quality was extremely high. Much more to come from this event, enjoy the highlights!

Cars don’t get much blue-er than this little Porsche we found in the paddock at Lime Rock Park. What a fantastic machine, I’d buy one for the color alone!

This was cool! A genuine imported Porsche 993 Carrera RS on public roads in the USA. This was the immediate predecessor to what we know as the modern 911 GT3, which began with the 996.
300hp in a lightweight extra focused air-cooled 911? Sign me up!

This thing is so classic! White / Blue is my personal favorite color combo on the Carrera RS. For those unfamiliar, the modern GT3 and GT3 RS can draw their model lineage all the way back to the car you see here, the 1973 911 Carrera RS. It was the top dog 911 at the time, and its grand children remain the driver’s choice among 911s today.
This is a real Holy Grail kind of car, right here, and it’s always a privilege to see one in person. More details and photos below. Enjoy!

I’m not sure if this is a genuine Carrera RS or not, but I couldn’t pass up its highlighter yellow and blue color scheme. Definitely not a car that goes unnoticed.

The ultimate Cayman thus far. This was one of three Cayman GT4s that showed up to Cars and Coffee, but it was the only one in red. Great look!
The 991 GT3 RS is one hell of a track machine, and this is one of my favorite colors I’ve ever seen one in. Classic Porsche style.
Porsches are awesome. Rally cars are awesome. So when the two get together in the Biblical sense, great things happen!
