Rennsport Reunion IV at Laguna Seca is 5,825 miles from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, but that didn't stop the automaker from shipping some of its most prized possessions all the way to California to show thousands of its loyal enthusiasts. Tucked safely in a permanent garage at the track, with special lighting and placards to help tell the story, we found more than a dozen historically significant Porsche models displayed chronologically from 1964 to present day.

While each is worthy of an hour walk-around by itself, we really liked the 1973 Porsche 911 RSR in Martini livery, the 1998 Porsche 911 GT1 98 LM that won Le Mans outright in 1998, the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup that was driven by Jeff Zwart up Pikes Peak in 2010 (and set the 2WD Time Attack class record) and the new Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid 2.0, which is still covered with the rubber marks from its last ALMS race at this circuit.

Special thanks to Autoblog's esteemed photographer, Drew Phillips, who set his alarm early to be able to capture each of the cars before the crowds enveloped them. Enjoy.
