In an effort to keep the latest iteration of the show fresh and new, this year’s Concours will see new and different classes such as “Custom Hot Rods pre 1972” and an “American Motorcycles pre 1980”, something rarely seen. “We take great care in attracting the best vehicles possible to our show. But we want people to know this is an inclusive event that appeals to history-buffs, lovers of the automobile, families and design lovers alike.” says Rob McLeese, founder and show chair of the Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance presented by Porsche. “As an avid Porsche fan and a Porsche owner, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Porsche Canada on board again as our presenting sponsor. Their cars are spectacular and are a part of an automotive history we would like to showcase, Concours style,” adds McLeese.
“We are proud to be a sponsor for a third year at a momentous time for the brand surrounding its 75th anniversary as well as the 60 Years of 911,” said John Cappella, President and CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “We have chosen the 2023 Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the venue to host the Porsche Classic Restoration Competition. Through this challenge, Porsche Centre teams from across the country have the opportunity to display their abilities while working with some of the brand’s most iconic classic models.”
What is a Concours d’Elegance? Derived from the French term meaning a competition of elegance, the Concours d\\\’Elegance has a historic story dating back to 17th Century French society. An event that began with horse-drawn carriages being paraded through the parks of Paris, France has evolved into a display of antique and classic cars for both competition and celebration. The 2023 Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance presented by Porsche will be held on the 18th fairway of Cobble Beach Golf Resort & Community overlooking the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay. Tickets are now available along with information regarding all other events at www.cobblebeachconcours.com.
