Concours Masters Celebrates 70 Years of Porsche at Salon Privé

Porsche’s seventieth anniversary will be honoured in great style at the 2018 edition of Salon Privé. 

Appropriately, 70 landmark examples of this legendary German marque will vie for honours during the hotly-anticipated Concours Masters Celebration of 70 Years of Porsche on Saturday 1st September, staged within the majestic grounds of Blenheim Palace.

Now in its second year, Concours Masters Celebration marries a competitive element expected of a concours but with the relaxed atmosphere of a no-pressure enthusiasts’ get-together. As such, owners, guests and visitors can expect an unforgettable day revelling in all-things Porsche.

Among the many rarities expected to be challenging for the silverware is a 1963 Porsche 356B GS Carrera 2000 Coupé with coachwork by Karosserie Reutter of Stuttgart. This fabulous machine, one of only twelve ever built in right-hand drive configuration, was the fastest-ever variant of road-going 356 in period.

Originally sold via AFN Motors, and since restored to era-correct form, right down to its Bali Blue hue, this particular example is bound to be a standout among a raft of sensational street and competition models.

Similarly, another challenger for a later model class will be the 1997 Porsche 993 GT2, one of only 7 right-hand drive cars. Designed as Porsche’s customer race car for the 1995 season, only 167 were built, of which 110 were for track with 57 road-going.

Staged in association with Pirelli, Lockton Private Clients and Chubb Insurance, Concours Masters Celebrates 70 Years of Porsche promises to be a thrilling event for owners and fans alike.

Pirelli is proud to announce sponsorship of the Concours Masters Celebration of 70 years of Porsche. The event will take place at this year’s Salon Privé.

Salon Privé will spring into action from 30th August to 1st September. Firmly established as the UK’s most exclusive automotive Garden Party and one of the longest-running and most successful motoring events in the UK, this year marks a particularly special milestone as the event relocates to the foot of the Palace becoming the first event ever to be located on the famous Blenheim Palace Cricket Pitch.

Salon Privé showcases two Concours celebrations within the same event; firstly, the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance on Thursday 30th August which is followed by Concours Masters Celebrates 70 Years of Porsche on Saturday 1st September.  Boodles Ladies’ Day sits in the middle on Friday 31st August which has fast become a social highlight of the Summer Season.
