Porsche Hits New Heights at Goodwood

Porsche at Goodwood

The Goodwood Festival of Speed came to Sussex last weekend to celebrate all things high octane, giving visitors the chance to see some exciting high performance vehicles taking on the famous Goodwood hillclimb track.

The centrepiece of this year's show was a stunning Porsche sculpture designed by Gerry Judah. Judah has been responsible for Goodwood's breathtaking temporary sculptures since 1997, and his work has included homages to many famous models, including the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, the Alfa Romeo P2 and last year's celebrated car, the Lotus 49.

This year saw the 50th anniversary of Porsche's most iconic car, the 911. To mark this momentous occasion, Judah created this incredible gravity-defying sculpture, featuring the world-famous cars soaring above the heads of awestruck onlookers.

The first Porsche 911 made its debut in September 1963 at the IAA International Automotive Show in Frankfurt. Since then, it has dominated the sports car market, becoming one of the most distinguished and influential vehicles ever made.

Visitors to Goodwood's Festival of Speed are treated to rare access to the featured vehicles, even getting the chance to drive them on Goodwood's famous track (by appointment). Next year's show is sure to be just as spectacular, so keep an eye on the website for the latest news. goodwood.co.uk
