Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Honors The Genius Of Porsche's 911 at 50  Porsche's 911 has defied common wisdom, outlived its competitors and, from roots in the early Sixties, leads Porsche Cars into a new century as the only car built today that carries its engine behind the rear axle.

At 4:00 PM on Friday, March 8th, 2013 in the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance presents 'THE PORSCHE 911 SEMINAR: PORSCHE'S FLAGSHIP at 50'.

The Porsche 911 Seminar will be empaneled by a pride of Porsche 911 legends. Brumos Porsche's Hurley Haywood, three-time Le Mans and five-time Daytona 24 Hour winner, raced with Brumos' Peter Gregg to win the 1973 24 Hours of Daytona, scoring the 911's first major international victory.

Joining Haywood will be Brumos Racing crew chief Jack Atkinson who guided Brumos' winning Porsche through dozens of championship and race victories including the 1973, '75 and '78 Daytona 24 Hours and the 1973 12 Hours of Sebring.
