The sports carmaker will make the upcoming 918 Spyder hybrid super sports car available at a number of locations throughout the Monterey peninsula during the weekend like the Porsche Zentrum at Quail Lodge, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The Quail Motorsports Gathering on Friday, Aug. 16, will feature a Porsche exhibit that will underscore 50 Years of the 911. One of the first Porsche 911s sold in the United States will be showcased alongside the 50th Anniversary 911 and the 2014 911 GT3.

The Porsche Zentrum will play host to the current lineup of Porsche models like the 2014 911 GT3 and the upcoming Panamera S E-Hybrid from Aug. 14 to Aug.  18. The Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will feature a special Porsche 911 class inhonor of the 50th anniversary of the 911.

To be exhibited in the garage of the Laguna Seca are a 1972 Martini 2.1 Turbo RSR, the 1978 “Moby Dick” 935, the 1978 “Baby” 935 and two 911 GT1s. The vehicles will then be transferred to Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for display on Sunday.
