917s! America Roadsters! Four-Cams! 904s! 911Rs! IndyCars! Holy cow, this year’s Amelia Island Concours had just about everything a Porsche enthusiast could want to look at. The special section featuring cars from the history of Penske Motorsport, which included a 917-10 and a 917-30 which dominated Can Am had to be a crowd favorite, but spread out throughout the show was a whole slew of great historically significant Porsches. It’s a little bit unbelievable how much Porsche action you could find at Amelia Island this year. Porsche itself brought out a few significant cars, including the Le Mans-winning Salzburg liveried 917K. That’s totally awesome.
And of course, our friend Brett Sloan of Sloan Motor Cars got the best experience of the show by being there in person. He said that he would have loved to take more photos of the Porsches, but there were just so many people on the show field that it was difficult to get a clear shot. Please do enjoy the glorious shots he managed to get of some really incredible Porsches. I think he did a commendable job, given the constraints of the show.
