But long before Beyoncé there was Cecilia Koskull.
This car on display at #interclassics was the first of 15 Gmünd Coupés to be sold to Sweden. This transaction represented the first significant export sale for Porsche. On 15 June 1950, the famous Swedish rally driver Cecilia Koskull drove this Porsche to win the Midnattssolsrallyt, the first international victory for Porsche. After a 34-year stay at a farm in Sweden, the car eventually ended up in the United States where it underwent a comprehensive restoration. The car is currently the property of a private Belgian collector.
RG founder Piers just loves wet and windy autumnal commuting in his 48 year old Porsche 911. To him it is the ultimate automotive expression of quality, function and longevity. #QualityFunctionLongevity
The #959. A Porsche that influenced the change of federal import laws because rich people wanted them stateside. It’s also my favorite Porsche ever made because it was ahead of its time technologically - actually was the first modern production car to have tire pressure monitors on top of a bunch of other random things.
