"The date was 12 September 1963, it was the debut of a car that would leave a lasting mark on the sports car world".
On Tuesday the 12 September, we celebrated 60 years of the iconic Porsche 911 model by turning our showroom into a museum showcasing the models heritage from throughout the last 60 years. From as early as 1965 to the latest 911 GT3 RS, we displayed over 40 911's throughout our showroom and workshop. We also welcomed Jodie Sloss, Porsche GB's current female Cup Driver originally from Scotland, who shared her story of racing so far and what inspired her to race such an iconic model.
We also collaborated with Clarendon Fine Art, who recently opened within the new St James Quarter in Edinburgh's City Centre. They showcased several artists work whose portfolio consisted of oil paintings, water colour and acrylic on canvas of various model 911's. As well as this, Clarendon Fine Art also welcomed one of the artist's onto the stage to draw a live sketch of the 911 GT3 RS we had on display.
With themed cocktails and tailored canapés for our customers to enjoy, this was a fantastic evening thoroughly enjoyed by over 300 customers and guests.
