Silverstone Circuit Hosts A New Porsche Record

/ Comments

911 owners headed to the UK to celebrate a model milestone.

Britain's Silverstone Circuit has seen its fair share of amazing automotive moments, not least of which has been the first ever Formula 1 World Championship Grand Prix in 1950. But its most recent addition to the record books came from its hosting the world's largest ever gathering of Porsche 911s, a total of 1,208 cars to commemorate the model's 50th anniversary.
