Hillsborough Concours celebrates its 63rd year honoring Porsche.

For Porsche enthusiasts, the 63rd annual Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance at the Crystal Springs Golf Club on July 21st will offer a stunning array of the historic sports brand from the original 356 coupes and roadsters to current offerings. Noted Porsche racer Bruce Canepa, whose Scotts Valley company restores and markets classic cars, will bring six rare examples of the honored marque to the Hillsborough field, including two legendary 917 racecars.

The field of more than 200 entrants will feature a robust variety from antique through the classic era, sports and muscle cars. The National Car Museum in Reno will bring a special visual treat, the Beatnik Bandit hotrod, created in 1961 by Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. Kids young and old are sure to love it.

The Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance weekend begins Friday with a Kickoff Party and Charity Auction at the Candy Store collection. Then Saturday morning the Tour d’Elegance, a classic car drive, stages in downtown Burlingame at Lorton Avenue. Car enthusiasts are welcome to check out the interesting vehicles and chat with owners before the tour departs at 9 am.
