We have the full rundown on Porsche's massive showing at the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Porsche plans to continue celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Porsche 917 by bringing several versions of the classic car to the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed. During the three-day event, which starts today, Porsche will have at least five different 917s on hand, as well as a Dynamic Concept scale model as the feature piece at the Porsche Café Le Mans on the festival grounds.
In addition to the cars, several former Porsche team drivers will also be in attendance. 1970 Le Mans winner Richard Attwood will reunite with his 917 racecar, while legendary driver Brian Redman will take the helm of a 917/30 CanAm unit. 1969 Le Mans champ Jackie Oliver will stand side-by-side with his car, dressed to the nines in Gulf livery. The well-known 917/20 Pink Pig will also be at the event.
Porsche will also present the current Porsche 911 GT3 in its UK debut. The car will tackle the Hill during the Sunday Times Supercar Run. The automaker also plans to showoff the Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo at Goodwood.
If that is not enough Porsche to satisfy your cravings, FoS attendees will have the chance to talk to the automaker's driving consultants. They will demonstrate the Cayenne on a special track with visitors in the passenger seat.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs through July 5.
