Concours D'Elegance

A Concours d’Elegance is an event during which owners of restored and highly maintained cars compete to see which is closest to its ‘as delivered’ condition. In simple terms, it’s a car show. During a Maverick Region Concours, owners and spectators alike will enjoy viewing a wide variety of well-prepared Porsche cars. This is your not-to-be missed Maverick event!

There are two types of Concours: the highly competitive PCA national level where cars are judged for originality, restoration and/or cleanliness and the "top-only or street" Concours. At the national level of competition, owners have spent many hours preparing all aspects of their cars, and competition can be intense.

The top-only or street Concours is much more relaxed and is the type Maverick Region sponsors. Only the car’s exterior, interior and a storage compartment will be judged. Points are deducted from a maximum possible value based on condition and cleanliness and trophies are awarded to the top cars. Cars will compete against like models based on the Maverick Region Concours Guidelines.

The Maverick Region Concours Chair is Mike Mahoney. You can email him at concours@mavpca.org.
