2018 is absolutely the year of the bespoke 911 creation. It started in March at the Geneva Motor Show as Ruf unveiled its SCR. Boasting a 500hp, nat-asp engine cooled by air, a carbon monocoque chassis and plenty of modern technology, this was the car which set the highest of standards for what’s possible with a classic 911 look. Singer, of course, already had its Dynamics and Lightweight Study under construction, finally wheeling it out for some sunlight – and widespread adulation – at Goodwood. You can read about the car in full on page 12, but think 500hp, 990kg and a partnership with the finest brands from around the automotive world. Spirited by the fact Porsche itself seemingly hasn’t actually been building a lot of 911s of late, the year…

Porsche dazzles at Goodwood for 70th anniversary celebrations 2018 Festival of Speed dedicated to Zuffenhausen with stunning Central Feature and huge display of motoring greats Porsche dominated the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed as Lord March dedicated his annual motoring garden party to the seven decades of Stuttgart’s favourite sports car. In what was a special 25-year anniversary of the Festival of Speed itself, a scintillating weekend of action with Porsche right at the top of the billing began on the Wednesday night with the unveiling of artist Gerry Judah’s 52-metre sculpture taking pride of place at the front of Goodwood House. Featuring six icons from throughout the company’s rich history, the magnificent structure’s unveiling began four days of celebrations with an unprecedented presence of Porsche cars taking to the 1.16-mile hillclimb…

singer’s dls breaks cover

Singer Vehicle Design’s new DLS – Dynamics and Lightweight Study – of the Porsche 964 has made a stunning world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. A client-inspired collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering – part of the Williams Grand Prix Engineering Group – and a formation of technical partners from the world of Porsche, including one Hans Mezger and Norbert Singer, the DLS project has produced the most advanced air-cooled Porsche 911 in the world. Two DLS examples made their public bow at Goodwood, one finished in Heart Attack red with black interior taking to the Goodwood hillclimb while its sister car in Parallax white with Norfolk yellow interior sat proudly on display outside Goodwood house. Undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking re-imaginings of a Porsche 911 of all time, the…

hillclimbing the porsche 961

Distraction, that’s what I need, and it comes in the form of artist Stefan Marjoram. He’s sketching a Rothmanssponsored Porsche, specifically a 961, the 959’s short-lived racing spin-off and little-known endurance racer relation to those more familiar Paris-Dakar 959s. There’s just one of them, and it’s here being recreated in virtual ink on Marjoram’s iPad. It’s calming to watch him. We’re at Goodwood, it’s sweltering hot and I’m in my too-large black race suit trying to wear it like the pros. I’m not sure how convincing I am, but I feign nonchalance as the man from the Porsche Museum comes up to me and says it’s time to get in. One of one, it came seventh overall at Le Mans in 1986, the first car home that wasn’t a Porsche Group C…

In 1971 Peter Gregg and I were co-IMSA GT Champions and my career was taking off. At a family meeting I had important personal news to share. I told my mother, my grandmother Nonny, my sister and brother I was gay. I wasn’t going to hide it anymore. We could live our lives more honestly and get on with everything else. I made sure Peter Gregg knew it too. I didn’t want anything hidden, but we weren’t going to advertise it. That is not my way as I am a quiet and a private person, and I didn’t want it to affect sponsorships. I was there to do a job by driving as fast as I could to get the best results. I thought to myself it shouldn’t matter to…
