England - As many as 1 000 Porsches are expected to join Beaulieu’s Simply Porsche on Sunday June 3rd in the grounds of the National Motor Museum for one of the biggest gatherings of the best loved sports cars in the south.

Held in association with The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts’ Club (TIPEC), the summer event is sure to follow in the tyre-tracks of last year’s bumper rally which attracted an impressive display of the German sports cars.

An enthusiast meet and greet

Porsche owners will relish the opportunity of a scenic drive across the New Forest before parking up at Beaulieu to meet fellow enthusiasts. A selection of stands will offer Porsche-related wares and rally-goers can enjoy a day out with access to all the features of one of the south’s leading visitor attractions.

Now in its 6th year, Simply Porsche attracts a wide variety of Porsches of every age and model. The 356 that built the manufacturer’s reputation in the 1950s and 1960s will be joined by the 911 and its modern-day successors, iconic rear-engine models, classic front-engine 944 and 928, plus the latest Cayenne and Macan 4x4s.
