Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Rally to Paris


On Saturday 8th June, 39 Porsche 911s embarked on what was to be a truly memorable journey travelling from Folkestone to Paris in convoy.

To mark 50 years of the Porsche 911, customers and staff from Porsche Centres Cambridge, Colchester and East London met early on the Saturday morning at Etchinghill Golf Club where their cars formed a unique and unforgettable line-up.  After breakfast, the convoy made its way to Folkestone where they caught the Eurotunnel to Calais and then drove onto Paris, arriving at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for a Champagne reception and lunch.

Guests were then free to explore the sights and sounds of Paris and return to the UK at their leisure, although many chose to stay on for the weekend.

The event was a huge success and despite the odd challenge here and there, everyone enjoyed the day with many commenting on how proud they felt to be part of what was, without doubt, an unforgettable experience.

We would like to thank all our customers who joined us and all members of staff who were instrumental in ensuring the smooth running of the event.
