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, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
