The Journal Podcast: Bruce Canepa

We have a frank talk with the world-famous collector, restorer and racer about the state of the hobby, the future of Laguna Seca, the Porsche 959 Government battle and why he will drive combustion engines until he dies.


“I will drive combustion engines until I die…” A deep and very frank conversation with one of the best known collectors in the hobby yields much substance.

This week we welcome collector, restorer and dealer, Bruce Canepa. Bruce discusses the climate in high-end collector cars, his battle with the US Government over the Porsche 959 and the future of Laguna Seca and Monterey Car week.

  1. It’s nice that Bruce has mellowed with time . I’ve always interacted positively with him but in the past he’s been known to be a lot about Bruce ! It’s paid off in your podcast to a very enriched level ! I forget how faceted Bruce is in our Car World So many talents ! Let me say thank you and I look forward to more programming! Perhaps , you might consider myself as a guest in the future ! My path is nothing like Bruce’s or others but It’s for certain that you would find it interesting

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Derby. We certainly all have an interesting story to tell. Please feel free to drop me an email and we can discuss.
