Porsche-inspired sculpture for Goodwood festival

ONE of the world’s most popular sports cars will be honoured by Goodwood at this year’s Festival of Speed.

A sculpture inspired by the Porsche 911 will be the central feature at the famous festival in July.

The installation, which promises to be ‘highly distinctive’, will be displayed outside Goodwood House.

The sports car has featured at every Goodwood festival, from the first event in 1993, and will race again for the festival’s 20th anniversary this year.

A spokesman for Goodwood said: “Whether appearing in action in road and race form on the testing 1.16-mile Goodwood hill climb, spitting gravel sideways around the Forest Rally Stage, or sitting serenely static yet inviting on the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours lawn or Porsche exhibition stand, the 911 has played a key role in helping to put the Festival of Speed on the map over the last 
20 years.”

Last year, Goodwood boasted a dramatic 28m-high infinity loop centrepiece inspired by Lotus.

This year’s festival, which runs from July 11–14, will feature a number of competition Porsches among a huge range of sports cars.
