-- Kemble, ON – (July 18, 2019) – The Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche is proud to announce that Porsche Canada will be their presenting sponsor for 2019. For the third time, this partnership will bring the Porsche Club of America to Cars & Coffee at Cobble Beach on Saturday, September 14, and allow Porsche Canada to present that afternoon in one of 2 seminars held in the Pavilion. If you can't make it Saturday, be sure to attend on Sunday, September 15, as the Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche will now include 2 Porsche (only) classes, a Classic Porsche 1949 - 1973 class and a Porsche Supercar open class. Our concours judging team is looking forward to evaluating these vintage automobiles and Porsche Canada is set to exhibit the new 2020 Porsche 911 during Sunday's awards ceremonies.
Now in its 7th
year, the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche is the most prestigious classic-car show in Canada. Hailed by the media and public, the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche presents the highest class of judges and participants in North America, as well as a wide collection of rare and pristine automobiles unmatched in Canada. Over 100 hand selected vehicles from collections across Canada and the United States will take their place on the beautiful cobble stone shores of Georgian Bay, delicately placed on the 18th
fairway of the Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community, just 10 minutes north of Owen Sound, Ontario.
In an effort to keep the latest iteration of the show fresh and new, this year's Concours will see classes specific to Porsche vehicles only, something rarely seen. "We take great care in attracting the best vehicles possible to our show. But we want people to know this is an inclusive event that appeals to history-buffs, lovers of the automobile, families and design lovers alike." says Rob McLeese, founder and chair of the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance. "As an avid Porsche fan and a Porsche owner, I couldn't be more thrilled to have Porsche Canada on board as our presenting sponsor. Their cars are spectacular and are a part of an automotive history we would like to showcase, Concours style." Adds McLeese.
"The brand is delighted to be back at the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance for the third time, now as the presenting sponsor," said Marc Ouayoun, President & CEO Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. "This event is a natural fit to showcase the newest generation of the Porsche 911 as well as to cater to the rising Porsche Classic car interest which spawned, this year, our first Restoration Competition."
