Porsche has been spending the majority of 2013 celebrating the 50th birthday of the 911, with its latest stunt taking the German brand to the home of British motorsports, Silverstone. To celebrate, Porsche invited enthusiasts to take their personal 911s on a lap of the former airfield, and boy, did the Porschephiles show up. 1,208 911s took part in the lap around the Grand Prix circuit, making it the largest-ever gathering of the iconic, rear-engined cars.

This wasn't just a celebration of 50 years for the 911, though. Funds raised were channeled towards Hope For Tomorrow, a cancer charity that works with the United Kingdom's National Health Service in operating mobile chemothereapy units that make life just a little bit easier on cancer patients.

Take a look at the long video below, and enjoy the passing of what are likely examples of every 911 model ever built.

      Sigh! being a 911 designer must be an easy way to make a nice living. only concern might be a fear of running out of letter/number combinations or a public that someday might say:"hey wait a minute!" the real genius was the porsche management team that boldly expanded the porsche model line-up and has still been able to charge top buck. their option list charges on every model even has m-b saying :"WOW, you guys are really good!"

        Sigh! Being an ignorant troll must be an easy way to get attention on the internet. only concern might be that it exposes how much of an idiot you really are that bypasses the fear that you'll never amount to anything in life.

      First thing I saw was the 911 GT1 with the Playstation livery... and instantly got saddened by the fact that it's not (and probably never will be) in a Gran Turismo game. Eff you, Electronic Arts. :(

      A testament to the timeless quality and vision of DFP. Some of those cars are sporting original paint. Ferrari could never pull this off. Ever seen a mass user (not collector) gathering of "working" Ferrari's with original paint? Exactly...

      Did anyone see a 959? I watched the video twice and I couldn't catch one.

      Or as Jeremy Clarkson would call; the biggest infestation of Beetles...in the world. In all seriousness though, this is quite the lovely sight. Credit truly is due to Porsche, they made themselves one hell of a sports car and have only made it better with age. I do find it interesting as well just how iconic the 911 really is; the current model is thoroughly contemporary and modern and doesn't even hint at retro styling. Yet, put it and a 63' side by side and you just know that they're not only from the same company, but they're the same car but for a few decades.
