The Audrain Collections took its first-ever Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance class win on Sunday afternoon.
Audrain’s 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Coupe won the Postwar Preservation Class in the 71st Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, nosing out two other outstanding cars — a 1948 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet from the collection of Kirk Wentland and Lawrence Caruso and a 1957 Ghia Chrysler 400 Superdart owned by John H. White.
The Porsche 904 attracted crowds of admirers from the time it rumbled onto the Pebble Beach fairway. The Porsche is very original and has less than 2,000 miles on the clock, so it is an ultra-rare time machine that preserves what these cars looked and sounded like in the early 1960s.
“I am very proud of our showing at Pebble this year and of course thrilled with the outcome,” said Audrain CEO Donald Osborne. “We are very honored to be able to share this wonderful and truly historic automobile with the world and secure the accolades and honors it justly deserves.”
A 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo won the coveted Best of Show honor.
The 72nd Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is scheduled for August 20, 2023.
