The Goodwood Festival of Speed and Porsche are always a special combination, and as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the first Porsche sports car, the 356 No.1, Porsche will also be celebrating as the featured marque for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Porsche will take centre stage being the first automotive manufacture to be the featured marque for a third time, an indication of our contribution to automotive history.
Taking place at the Goodwood House in Sussex, from Thursday 12 to Sunday 15 July 2018, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual celebration of motoring. It is famous for attracting the world’s most legendary road and race cars and is renowned for its tough 1.16-mile Hillclimb, which runs through the very heart of the festival.
The Porsche presence at the festival will be greater than ever, with a collection of rare and iconic Porsche models in action on the Goodwood Hill, including the Porsche’s crown jewel, the1948 356 No.1 from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. It will also include the most recent legend in Porsche motorsport history, the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car, winner of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship.
As well as the much-anticipated Porsche line-up, there will also be exhibits and immersive displays at the Porsche Experience Centre, as well as passenger rides in the all-new Cayenne for guests to enjoy.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
