Next month at the Porsche Classics at the Castle event, in the grounds of the Hedingham Castle in Essex, United Kingdom, Coys will host the world’s largest and most exclusive auction of historic Porsche models. They have lined up 60 classic models as a tribute to the 60th anniversary of the 356 Carrera.
