It's been 70 years since the 356 was revealed
The 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be dedicated to Porsche, celebrating 70 years since the 356 was launched.
Gerry Judah will design the central sculpture for the event, which runs from July 12 to July 15 at Goodwood House, West Sussex.
Along with the Stuttgart-centric sculpture, the Festival of Speed will celebrate Porsche with a dedicated hillclimb event. World Sportscar Championship and Le Mans winners will be on show, running alongside rally-prepped 911 racers.
“We thought long and hard about how best to celebrate the 70th anniversary of our sports car and how we could share this with enthusiasts, Porsche fans and owners here in the UK," said Alexander Pollich, managing director of Porsche Great Britain.
"The Goodwood Festival of Speed will be the perfect setting – allowing the cars that, over seven decades, have made Porsche so unique and so special, to be seen, and heard, in action. Watching a 917 twitch and weave its way past the flint wall is a highlight that I’m very much looking forward to this July."
Although punters won't be able to drive a Porsche up the driveway at Goodwood, they'll be able to get up-close and personal with the current Porsche range – and test their skills on race simulators, naturally.
