For Jeff Zwart, his love for Porsche all started riding in the backseat of his parents' new 1964 356C. At 16, he learned to drive in a 901, chassis #35, and he was hooked.
Cars and speed were in his blood and when he graduated from college he set out as a photographer shooting stories on Porsche. Jeff was not comfortable being on the sidelines at the races he covered, so in 1993 he started rallying a Porsche and in 1994 he finished second in the US Pro Rally championship with four overall wins driving a Carrera 4.
His Porsche driving career continued to gain momentum. He went on to win a number of different titles and is now especially noted for his wins at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb – winning 8 class championships in 11 different Porsche cars.
His story with Porsche did not stop there. In 1989, Zwart started directing television commercials and created notable work for Porsche including "Family Tree" to launch the Panamera in 2009.
Recognized as a "Legend" at Rennsport for his driving legacy – Zwart was also tapped to capture the spirit of Rennsport and passion of Motorsport in a series of films. Zwart was a natural fit – lending a unique perspective as a driver, Porsche owner, photographer and director.
