08/24/2022

A glimpse into some of the exciting categories for this year's Concours d'Elegance.

Online PR News – 24-August-2022 – Kemble, ON – On Sunday, September 18th, the Cars are the stars at the 8th installment of the Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance presented by Porsche, as they take to the stage and to the green, at Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community. Every year for the past 7 years (pre-pandemic), over 100 classic and vintage automobiles have made their way to the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay to participate in the annual Concours d’Elegance presented by Porsche at Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community. A long-held tradition stemming from the 17th century when cars would parade through the parks of Paris, France, evolving into what we now know as a competition of elegance (Concours d’Elegance) displaying not only antiques but classic automobiles as well, for both competition and celebration.

With 18 classes in total for judging purposes, each class will consist of either 4 or 8 vehicles, hand selected by a committee of automotive experts who study each vehicle closely, paying attention to the finer details, right down to the correct bolts used for that car’s time period. On Sunday, September 18, 2022, a panel of 48 judges take to the 18th fairway at Cobble Beach Golf Resort Community and begin scoring each of these vehicles against others in their class, in order to choose the best in that class. First, second and third place are awarded within each class, and each class winner is eligible for one of either the Best of Show, or the Most Outstanding Pre or Post War awards.

75 Years of Ferrari
One of the most iconic sports car brands of the world, the legendary Italian automaker is celebrating its 75th anniversary. With an amazing history in stunning design, handcraft workmanship and a great history within motorsports, Ferrari is a name and a logo that is recognizable in any household. This year at the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance, we are honouring this great heritage by showcasing some of Ferrari's most iconic sports cars from 7 decades of manufacturing vehicles. From a beautiful and rare 330 America, a low-mileage and all-original BB512, and the all-new SF90 Stradale.

Rad Rides of the 1980’s
The Eighties provide great nostalgia with its music, clothes, movies, and especially automobiles. The era of turbocharging, iconic poster supercars and new technology brought the automotive industry out of the malaise era of the 70s. This year, step back in time with some cars from your youth, including the iconic Buick Grand National, Porsche 930 Slant Nose and the radical European Renault R5 Turbo 2.

Rare Colour of Porsche
No automotive brand has a history of colour quite like Porsche. For decades, Porsche has produced cars in obscure, wild and striking hues, but colour availability increased in the 1980s with the creation of the Porsche Exclusive division. Through Exclusive, customers are able to build custom Porsches, using both new and historic colours, and the popularity of the Exclusive Manufaktur has gone wild in recent years.
