Concours

Concours derives from the French term Concours d’Elegance, which translates as “a competition of elegance.” Concours’ date back to the 17th century French aristocracy who showcased their fanciful carriages in full-blown parades; but over time, as transportation evolved, so did Concours. The simple gathering of carriages would change into a competition between automobile owners judged on appearance of their cars.

Today, Concours is best described as a car show where owners compete based on overall condition or preservation of their vehicle.

Within CVR we take a more laid-back approach, with each Concours structured as a People’s Choice event. All types of Porsches are welcomed at the CVR Concours!

Join CVR for our 48th Annual People’s Choice Concours at the Farmington Polo Club. The event will include 12 different Porsche classes, spanning all generations from 356 to 992, as well as the four-door variety. Judging for each class will be people’s choice.

We will also have a special display of 911 Turbos and 914s (both celebrating anniversary years from 2020). The special display group will not be judged, and each participant will receive a goodie bag. Any and all variants of these specific models are welcome!

For our youthful attendees, we’re introducing a LEGO Porsche display. Please bring any LEGO Porsche that you’ve built. Prizes will be awarded.

PLEASE BRING SOCK DONATIONS. We are asking all attendees for sock donations. In partnership with our Community Service team, all attendees are encouraged to donate socks. A donation will earn you an additional voting ballot (also applies to spectators – donate socks, get a ballot!) Socks will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul in Middletown, CT.
