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
. 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.
