Get ready for Goodwood and the new 911

Hybrid 911 to take centre stage alongside the latest and greatest from Stuttgart  

Visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed (11 – 14 July) can look forward to another stellar celebration of motoring and motor sport at the ultimate automotive garden party.
 
As always, the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill is the main focal point for the thrilling on-track displays of cars spanning the dawn of motoring right up to the present day. Porsche is once again bringing a mouth-watering selection of automotive gems to the Festival, including the new 911 GTS, which will be making its public debut. With the theme of this year’s event in mind, Horseless to Hybrid – Revolutions in Power, the new 911 GTS is the first road-going hybrid 911, using a clever motorsport-inspired system featuring an electric turbo and electric motor to deliver greater speed, responsiveness and efficiency.

Other debuts for the Stuttgart marque include the new fully-electric Macan Turbo, the new Cayenne GTS, and the Taycan Turbo GT, which with up to 1,034 PS on tap from its electric motors is the most powerful production Porsche ever. On Saturday and Sunday, it will be driven by Porsche Motorsport driver Lars Kern. From those who prefer a Porsche in a more analogue style, the naturally aspirated 911 S/T – with its six-speed manual gearbox – will also be making its Goodwood debut.

Among the Porsche race cars destined for the Hill is the ‘Type 992’ 911 GT3 Cup Car, as is used in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship. Its driver for the weekend is Porsche Cars Great Britain’s own ‘Junior’, James Wallis, who follows tradition by taking part in the annual timed shoot-out on the Hill.

A walk through Goodwood
Beyond the collection of iconic cars that will be running up the Hill (and which can be found in the Ballroom, Supercar and First Glance paddocks when not on the Hill), the House of Porsche, located on the right side of the hillclimb course, is the primary touchstone of the brand. Here, visitors are invited to see all the latest new car highlights from the current range, as well as explore the ever-growing offerings from Porsche Classic. Chief among the vehicles on display is the new electric Macan, which went on sale earlier in the year, with first deliveries due in a few months. Further electrified offerings on display include the iconic Taycan (also to be found in Goodwood’s ‘Electric Avenue’), alongside the plug-in hybrid Cayenne and the new Panamera.

The House of Porsche is your prime destination to shop the latest merchandise, with a range of collections, as well as a range of Porsche Design Timepieces that can be personalised to match the design of our cars, taking inspiration from the product to create ‘a sportscar for the wrist’. A café and extensive seating areas provide the perfect environment to relax and take in what’s going on – thanks to an enormous screen displaying all the action from the Goodwood Hill. There’s also an area for children, with some great free activities including the Porsche Stamp Trail, and a stage where presenter Nicki Shields will be interviewing some key Porsche personalities on Friday and Saturday, such as Porsche Ambassador, 2015 WEC Drivers’ Champion and former Grand Prix winner Mark Webber.

The excitement isn’t restricted to this location. Behind the distinctive House of Porsche display, visitors will find ‘Camp Cayenne,’ an outdoor-themed celebration of the iconic Porsche SUV, along with some of its rugged sister cars, including the Macan and the 911 Dakar. Each day there’s also a changing display of around 250 cars, thanks to our Members, who will be parking their cars right on site.
