A three-day crowd of more than 55,000 witnessed the largest gathering in the world of Porsche race cars, with 321 historic entries taking to the track to rekindle memories of yesteryear as well as fan the flames of excitement for the famous marque’s current lineup of U.S. and international competition, including the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup USA. In addition to the nonstop on-track activity, nearly 1,500 Porsches were on display, including more than a dozen cars direct from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, 64 other historically significant cars in the Chopard Heritage Display, and more than 1,400 more parked in the 20 model-specific corrals throughout the facility.
 
Finally, there was the list of legendary race car drivers on hand who earned Porsche its unparalleled success over the past seven decades: Jacky Ickx, Vic Elford, Hans Stuck, Hurley Haywood, Patrick Long, Jörg Bergmeister, Wolf Henzler, Mark Webber, Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber to name just a few.
 
There was something for every motorsports enthusiast to appreciate, whether it was a 356, 911, 908, 917, 935, 962, or 919.
