KEF Meets Porsche in California

KEF Meets Porsche in California

In late August, I attended the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Car Week at Weathertech Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California. Porsche sponsored its own “Porsche Werks Reunion” at the nearby Corral De Tierra Country Club.

Walking around the golf course, I stumbled on a pair of KEF Blade Two speakers in the middle of a field of rare Porsche 911s, from the earliest 1965 model 356 to the latest 2018 GT-3RS. Anthony Hrehowsik, KEF USA’s Operations Manager, explained that the company partnered
with Porsche to offer both the Blade ($32,999/pair) and the Blade Two ($24,999/pair) loudspeakers in paint-to-sample Porsche car colors. The Blade Two speakers on display had been painted to match the shade of blue Porsche created for the 60 examples of its 2015 Porsche 911 Club Coupe (version 991.1), released to honor of the Porsche Club of America (PCA)’s 60th Anniversary.

Up to now, the car’s “Club Blau” paint color has only appeared on those 60 vehicles. One of the lucky 2015 911 Club Coupe owners parked his car next to the Blade Twos, proving that the Blade Two’s color match-to-sample was perfect. Both Blade and Blade Two speakers can be ordered in a Porsche car color for a 10% upcharge.
