Porsche 911 marks 50 years with memorable ‘Central Feature’ display at Goodwood

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 23, 2013

Goodwood is paying homage to the Porsche 911 at the 2013 Festival of Speed on July 11 to 14. Porsche 911, one of the most versatile and popular sports cars in the world, is the main ‘Central Feature’ at this event. Displayed outside Goodwood House, the one-off model inspired by the 911 is expected to be a very distinct ‘installation’.

It’s very fitting that the first half-century of the Porsche 911 at Goodwood is celebrated at the same time as the Festival of Speed’s 20th anniversary year. This iconic sports car has been seen at each single Goodwood Festival from 1993 during its first event, which attracted 27,500 enthusiasts.

Last year, more than 185,000 visitors went to the world’s foremost celebration of car culture. The 911 has had a crucial role in helping to put the Festival of Speed on the map over the last 20 years. The 911 has proven its greatness on the road and on races while being tested at the 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb, driving past the Forest Rally Stage, or being viewed at the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours lawn or Porsche exhibition stand.

For the last 50 years, the 911 was at the center of the Porsche brand. The Porsche 911 has given inspiration to so many car enthusiasts throughout the world since it made its debut as the model 901 in September 1963 at the IAA International Automotive Show at Frankfurt. The 911 is presently considered to be the quintessential sports car as well as the focal point of all the other models in the Porsche lineup.
