A friend who works at Goodwood is looking for a really good example of an early Porsche 928 to be displayed at the Earls Court Motor Show stand this year’s Goodwood Revival meeting.

I was passing by Goodwood this morning (it’s local to me) and, on a whim, decided to pop in. I’m glad I did, as I spotted this lovely Porsche Carrera 2.7RS in the paddock. Was it a real one? I didn’t have time to have a close look but I didn’t care – it was a lovely looking car!

Porsche will once again showcase an exciting array of new, iconic and historic models at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, June 28 – July 1. The 2012 Festival’s chosen theme is Young Guns – Born to Win, and this is particularly appropriate for Porsche given the role played by racing cars from Stuttgart in the early careers of many drivers over the years. Dan Gurney, Vic Elford, Brian Redman, Richard Attwood, Derek Bell, Allan McNish and Richard Westbrook are just a few who made their names behind the wheel of a Porsche. Many drivers, including Bell, went on to become synonymous […]
I spent an enjoyable afternoon at the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the weekend. Part of the fun of this event is driving there in an interesting car. I took a 1993 Porsche 964 Turbo finished in eyecatching Cobalt Blue. A modest car in relation some of the exotic Ferraris and Lamborghinis, perhaps, but boy did it attract a lot of attention!
