Bob Hahn Klassieke Porsches

Bob Hahn was born with a love for the Porsches.

His father, who fought in Italy as a young South African as a tank driver with the Allies, was obsessed with the genius Ferdinand Porsche, who had a big hand in the development of Germany’s war equipment. Unfortunately, the Hahn Sr. was missing. in money to buy a Porsche, but Bob was driven around as a child in a whole row of beetles, starting with a pair of 51 glasses, baptized by his father Tom Poes. That is where the love for cars originated and Bob received his first driving lesson at the age of 11 on the heath near Oirschot. When the family was touring, a Porsche was warned and Bob, sitting in the litter box, saw a 356 approaching, catching up with the improbable speed of perhaps 140 kilometers per hour, a speed difference of at least 50 kilometers per hour! Bob grew up with the main hobby being tinkering with and riding with cross-mopeds, whereby avoiding the police, who were driving in Amsterdam at the time, was often a recurring challenge. After HAVO and compulsory military service (as a tank driver), a job as a car and motorcycle mechanic was not the logical choice, but indispensable for the development of his technical knowledge. The owner of the motorcycle store came up with a 356 and the circle was complete. In 1978 Bob became a member of the Porsche 356 Club Nederland and made the club magazine for many years and was a member of the club board. Various beetles were exchanged in 1981 for an Irischgrüne 356 C Coupé. He then opted for a job at the airport fire brigade Schiphol. After ten years the big step was taken and Bob Hahn Classic Porsches was opened in Almere. In those years they also participated in historic races with a black 356 B T5 Coupé, with which various successes were achieved. After eight years the business was sold and the Hahn family moved to the Veluwe, where Bob Hahn Classic Porsches 2.0 was opened in Epe. After a few months, a business space in Vaassen was moved into and many 356s and 911s were restored, tuned and maintained. Bob was also often a service technician for the State of Art Porsche team at the Mille Miglia and provided technical support at many historic rallies. They also regularly participated in rallies, including the Tulip Rally and Liège-Rome Liège. Unfortunately, health problems caused Bob to end his business in Vaassen. But the blood is spreading where it can’t go and in 2015 Bob Hahn Classic Porsches was revived again in Harderwijk in a modest business building, which soon turned out to be too small. BHKP soon found its customers, but also new customers, and the first restoration projects have left the workplace. September 2017 Bob moved into a nice, clean and light workshop at Zuiderbreed 29 in Harderwijk, where hopefully many classic Porsches will find a good home …
