Goodwood Festival of Speed To Celebrate All Things Porsche

Every year, the Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrates one marque and at this year’s event, Porsche’s seven decades of producing some of the world’s best sports cars and race cars will be commemorated.

As with every year, a large statue will be erected in front of Goodwood house for the duration of the event. Additionally, a dedicated class of Porsche’s greatest vehicles will run on the famous hillclimb course in what’s sure to be a thrilling spectacle.

Key cars that are expected to be in attendance during the event including some of Porsche’s Le Mans 24 Hours winners, as well as Grand Prix, IndyCar, World Sportscar Championship, and rally weapons. The marque’s best current production machines will also be a key feature of the Michelin Supercar Run.

“Porsche has been one of our most loyal and enthusiastic partners, supporting the Festival of Speed since 1995, and the Revival since 2010,” The Duke of Richmond and Gordon, Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox said.

“This year Porsche will become the first manufacturer to create the central display at the Festival for the third time, underlining the huge contribution from this iconic manufacturer of world-beating racing cars and road cars.”

Porsche previously featured at the event’s Central Feature statue 20 years ago when a 917-20, 917LH, 936, 956, and 911 GT1 were displayed. Five years ago, the 50th anniversary of the 911 was commemorated.

    Again?

      I’ve had the same exact feeling. I think we both got confused with the Porsche Sculpture in Porsche Platz, Stuttgart. I’ve had the chance to see it two years ago, just after it was unveiled. Absolutely amazing, and definitely something that wouldn’t look out of place at Goodwood.

        Agreed.

    So I take it the 718 Cayman GT4 and 911.2 GT3 RS will be there? It would be a nice place to make an official debut. Give people a chance to see them in the metal.

      For sure the GT3 RS will be there, and hopefully the 718 also.

    • Pretty sure they will bring all the new model there, especially during the Moving Motor Show.

  • I’m interested on what car they would bring, I mean from 356 No. 1 to 919 Hybrid there are many wonderful, successful, sophisticated and historic Porsches in between.
