(London – October 23rd)

Hexagon Modern Classics last night played host to the inaugural – and extremely successful – Total 911 Awards, complete with eleven gongs and a fascinating Q+A with 2015 Le Mans winner, Nick Tandy. Tandy himself took home two awards, matching independent specialists, Autofarm, while Hexagon Modern Classics received the Editor’s Choice award.

Hundreds of the industry’s best and brightest Porsche specialists gathered at Hexagon Modern Classics’ HQ in north London, with a host of rare and exotic Porsches on display – many of which came from Hexagon’s own stock.

Visitors had the opportunity to admire Hexagon’s expertly prepared rarities such as a Porsche 993 RS ‘Clubsport’, 9M 993 Speedster and a 993 Turbo S. A Porsche 901 Cabriolet prototype was also on display – a unique car provided by Porsche Cars GB.

Broadcaster Henry Hope-Frost was host for the evening, kicking things off with a fascinating Q+A with 2015 Le Mans winner, Nick Tandy. Reflecting on his time racing with Porsche, Tandy said: “The proudest moment of my career was when I was offered a factory contract by Porsche.” And speaking of his win at Le Mans, when Tandy was asked how quick his teammate Nico Hulkenberg was, he diplomatically replied: “Well, we won the race, didn’t we?”

Our list of eleven winners – Hexagon among them – really rewards excellence in the Porsche community so it’s brilliant that we can recognize all their hard work in this way.
