Simply Porsche 2018 at Beaulieu
The sun came out, and so did a record number of cars – A 62 per cent increase in Porsches’ on display at Beaulieu’s Simply Porsche 2018 versus last years attendance.
The event’s success continues Beaulieu’s bumper 2018 season of Simply rallies, which saw a strong start for the first Simply Audi and record numbers at Simply Ford.
Held in association with The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts’ Club, Simply Porsche saw every era of the sports car marque’s history represented in the vibrant display. From early 1950s machines right up to the latest models, there was something to please every fan of these finely-engineered German sports cars at the event in the grounds of the National Motor Museum.
A selection of Porsche 356s from the 1950s and 1960s could be found parked up with examples of the V8-powered 928, the high performance GT3 and GT4, the Cayman and open-top Boxster and Spyder. 911s ranging from the 1960s up to the very latest incarnations were well-represented in the line-up.
A variety of trade stands offered a range of accessories, from brochures and model cars to stereo systems and soundproofing, while Porsche specialist Brookspeed displayed a selection of Porsches for sale.
The sun definitely shone for Simply Porsche, which as ever saw every era of the sports car marque’s history represented but in the most spectacularly huge way ever. The legendary Porsche 911 was well-represented in the diverse rally line-up along with pretty much every other model in the range.
70 years on from when Porsche started building cars combined with 25th Anniversary for us at The Independent Porsche Enthusiast Club, 2018 is certainly a vintage year.
We cant wait till next year and hope to see you there!
