Latest Lifestyle News: Seven Decades of Porsche Perfection
Iconic German car marquee Porsche is celebrating its significant 70-year milestone this year with a host of worldwide events, including star billing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
But perhaps the most lavish commemorations will come within the beautiful environs of Blenheim Palace in the UK, which will play host to the prestigious Salon Privé show at the end of August.
The event is planning to honour the car brand’s 70th birthday with a eulogy in the form of 70 iconic Porsche models, past and present. You can read more about the plans for the show in today’s newsletter.
Elsewhere this week, there are reports on the upcoming opening of the lavish Bodrum Edition hotel in Turkey, along with the long-awaited production of the Maserati Alfieri Electric Sports Car that is billed as offering a rival to Tesla’s domination of the luxury electric car sector.
There’s also news on a beautiful new range of jewellery from Van Cleef & Arpels, a one-off Ferrari created for the recent Concorso d’Eleganza on the banks of Lake Como in Italy, and a pop-up nail bar by Louboutin at the Mandarin Oriental in Paris.
Finally, we turn the spotlight on a beautiful Rolex watch once owned by legendary actor Steve McQueen that is due to be sold at auction, and there’s also a profile of the 2018 London Concours and its inaugural Supercar Paddock.
