This weekend, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Porsche will have on display a range of iconic cars that celebrate the firm's innovative approach to both performance and motorsport.

The theme of this year's event which is Racing Revolutions Quantum leaps that shaped motorsport. Among the cars on display will be the Semper Vivius (always alive) an early gas/electric hybrid that Dr. Ferdinand Porsche built in 1900, plus the 1973 Porsche 917/30 Spyder racer, the company's first turbocharged car; a 1200 hp Can Am monster that paved the way for the now legendary 930 Turbo.

Other cars being shipped over from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart include the 1960 718 Formula 2 single seater (which won the F2 constructor's cup that year) and 1986 all-wheel drive 961 turbo (a derivative of the 959 that competed in the 24 hours of Le Mans that year and finished 7th overall).

Of course modern stuff will also be represented, including the latest 500 hp 911 GT3 RS and a Turbo S version of the Panamera sedan.

Because this year's Goodwood Festival also marks 60 years of Porsche in the United Kingdom, there will also be a variety of street versions on display including an early 911 and an example of it's intended successor, the 928.

I wish I was able to attend the event. All those amazing Porsche's showing the history of the brand must be an amazing sight to see.

Really curious if Porsche mentioned any information on their future supercar or the new Porsche model that will be coming out next year.
