Excitement for Porsche building ahead of Silverstone Classic

Written by: Neil

An amazing array of classic cars will be on display at this year’s Silverstone Classic, but there is one model that has everyone here in the Petrol News office fit to burst with excitement!

The breathtaking Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid will be top of the bill for the legendary Porsche marque at this year’s show and it’s a model that has everyone here wishing they could head on down and check it out in person.

Winner of the gruelling 24-hour endurance race for the last two years, the 919 Hybrid is a technological marvel, as well as being one of the most spectacular-looking vehicles at this year’s showcase.

The fun doesn’t end there though, as the Porsche Club of Great Britain will be paying homage to a special 40th anniversary of the year that the elite German manufacturer first installed its front engine/rear transmission powertrain configuration in the 924 – a true milestone in automotive design.

As a result, the club will be hosting a special track parade of some of the marque’s most iconic models. We’re sure it’ll be a sight to behold and a fantastic tribute to one of our favourite supercar builders!
