Sets a new world record for the largest 911 parade
The 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911 continues as the company has managed to set a new world record for hosting the largest parade of 911s.
The unique event took place yesterday at Silverstone when 1,208 911s participated in a parade organized by Porsche Club Great Britain in partnership with Porsche Cars Great Britain and Silverstone Classic.
The event was kicked off by Mark Porsche – who is the son of 911 designer Ferdinand Alexander ‘Butzi’ Porsche and the great-grandson of founder Ferdinand Porsche – who said “It’s been a family member over all the generations of the 911 series and I’m very proud to be here today to represent the Porsche family at this great event. I think that to have these 1,200 cars on track is the attention that the 911 deserves for its 50th birthday. I can’t thank the Porsche Club GB enough for making this event possible.”
Besides providing a lot of eye candy, the event raised funds for the Hope for Tomorrow charity which brings mobile chemotherapy units to cancer patients so they can avoid stressful long distance travel and long waiting times.
