Celebrating 60 years of 911


On the picturesque day Saturday 23 September, we orchestrated an extraordinary event, uniting passionate classic 911 enthusiasts for a captivating drive from our center to the illustrious Bowes Museum. Nestled in the charming town of Barnard Castle, County Durham, this architectural gem, designed by Jules Pellechet and John Edward Watson, was meticulously constructed to house the remarkable art collection of John Bowes and his wife, Joséphine Benoîte Coffin-Chevallier. The museum's doors first opened in 1892, serving as a testament to their profound love for art and culture.

Our mission was to create a memorable journey, where 911 aficionados could revel in the spirit of Porsche. This adventure culminated in a delightful lunch, bringing together like-minded Porsche enthusiasts from Porsche Centre Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield, Teesside and York centers to share in the joy of this iconic brand.
