This year’s 35th Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance will be soon be upon us. Billed as the Potomac Porsche Club’s premier annual concours and hosted along with the DC Region’s Mercedes Benz Club and BMW Club for its 35th year, this is a great time to view some of the areas nicest German automobiles. Bring your Porsche out to the show to compete for awards and to display. The all-day event is complete with car displays, food and merchandise vendors and followed by an awards reception.
Potomac Porsche Club Concours Chairmen John Truban & Kevin Naughten have chosen a diverse and highly qualified group of Judges. The Judges will be scoring cars based on cleanliness of the exterior, interior, engine and trunk compartments. We do not score the undercarriage of the car. We have designed the car classes to allow for the widest range of Porsche automobiles to compete and be shown. We have many familiar classes while adding two additional classes this year. We have added a Modern Production Class for Cayennes, Macans and Panameras, as well as brought back the Outlaw Class for all Porsches that have been noticeably modified from the original specifications.
This year’s Deutsche Marque will be awarding Class Awards for 1st , 2nd and 3rd places. We will also be awarding five Grand Awards, listed below. The Best of Marque Award will be given to the top scoring Porsche on the show field. This winner will then compete against the Mercedes Benz and BMW recipients for The Spirit of the Marque Award – the top honor.
