CVR’s Oct. 15th Concours is Almost Here!

Don’t be intimidated by the name… while we refer to our event as a “Concours,” think of it as a Porsche-only car show. In fact, this is the only Porsche-centric car show in the state! All cars are judged by “people’s choice,” so anyone who is an entrant has an opportunity to place. Prep work and cleanliness certainly help, but are not a requirement!

This year’s special display will feature the Porsche Boxster and the Porsche 968. It’s incredible to believe that both models are celebrating such milestones – 25 years for the Boxster and 30 years for the 968. I remember fondly when we ordered our Boxster during the winter of 1998 – has it really been that long?! We will be arranging dedicated displays for both models, so if you have one, please register! Show cars, daily drivers, race cars… we want to see them all. The more in attendance, the more we’ll be able to demonstrate the full chronology of both models.
