CT Valley Region Porsche Club of America Annual Summer Concours

Sunday, June 17, 2018

Concours derives from then French term Concours d'Elegance, which translates from French as "a competition of elegance". Concours supposedly date back to the 17th century French aristocracy who showcased their fanciful carriages in full-blown parades; but over time, as transportation evolved, so did concours. The simple gathering of carriages would change into a competition between automobile owners judged on appearance of their cars. To sum up things simply, the tradition of concours is still carried out today as a staple at automobile shows and after racing competitions as a competition of the quality and appearance of a car based on restoration to a state exceeding when the car just came out of the factory and maintenance.
