Porsches that starred and will star at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ...

On Thursday, this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed will kick off with the first of four public days. Always assembling a formidable selection of road and racing cars, it is one of the absolute highlights of the year. Among the many great cars that went 'up the hill' last year was this Porsche 935/2.0 'Baby'. Effectively built for a single race, this is one of the most extreme Group 5 racers built and boasts the smallest six-cylinder engine ever produced by Porsche with a displacement of just 1.4 litres. We have taken a detailed look at the car's fascinating history, which is illustrated by a 34-shot gallery of this formidable machine.
In the official Goodwood Festival of Speed sale, staged by Bonhams, two Porsches are also set to take centre stage. Rarest and most valuable of the pair is this 356 A Carrera Speedster. While Porsche only built 152 Speedster with the four-cam Carrera engine the example consigned is rarer still as it is one of just three right-hand drive Carrera Speedsters. All three were sold to Australia, and this car is the only one back in the Northern Hemisphere, which explains why it is estimated to sell for close to GBP 1 million.
In the early 1970s, the Carrera name was revived for the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 homologation special. Of these, 200 were built to 'Lightweight' specification and the example on offer was one of just 17 in right-hand drive. Comprehensively restored some years ago, it is estimate to sell for GBP 750,000 - 850,000.
We will be on hand throughout the weekend and will return with a detailed report of this year's Festival of Speed early next week.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
