Held in association with The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts’ Club (TIPEC), Beaulieu’s 7th Simply Porsche will be a season highlight whether you’re looking for an excuse to get out and about in your prized Porsche, keen to see a staggering selection of iconic sports cars or just fancy a great day out at one of the south’s leading visitor attractions.
Enjoy a drive across the stunning New Forest to reach Beaulieu, then take pride in your Porsche as you park amongst other shining examples in the showground. You’ll be in good company as you meet fellow owners and immerse yourself in all things, Porsche.
Last year’s record line-up of 1,620 Porsches ranged from the 1950s and ‘60s 356, through numerous incarnations of the legendary 911, right up to the latest models. Fans were spoiled for choice as examples of the V8-powered 928, high-performance GT4 and open-top Boxster took their places in the show, with 2019’s line-up anticipated to be equally exciting.
Visitors and event-goers will cast votes for their favourite Porsche of the show in the People’s Choice Awards, with the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
