A Tribute to Porsche's racing heritage in Monterey

During the 2011 Monterey Classic Car event this week, Porsche celebrates the motorsports heritage of its iconic 911 sports car alongside the 918 RSR Concept – the Porsche Zentrum is the central hub for the Porsche experience during the week.

The Zentrum is located at Quail Lodge and features an extensive Porsche display as well as a consumer test drive program. A Porsche display will be nearby at The Quail for A Motorsports Gathering on August 19 and on Peter Hay Hill at Pebble Beach, beginning on August 18.

This display at Pebble Beach will feature several historic 911 race cars, including the 1979 935 from the Brumos Collection, considered the last remaining unmodified 935 in existence, as well as the 911 S that carried Hurley Haywood to 10 Camel GT race wins during 1972. Other cars will be displayed including a 2011 911 GT3 Cup Car from the Porsche Sport Driving School, the Gunnar Racing 911 GT1 based on the car that won Le Mans overall in 1998 as well as the 2011 911 GT3 RS 4.0.
