Brumos’ Automotive Collection Illuminates The Golden Age Of Porsche Racing

Automotive culture is filled with awe-inspiring stories. Everywhere you turn, there’s a tale to be told regarding the medium’s most prolific cars, and with it, a recollection of the prestigious individuals who drove them. The recently-publicized Brumos Automotive Collection is one such legend, calling upon a handful of history’s most viable vehicles to paint a staggering picture of mid-century race culture.

Jacksonville, Florida might sound like an abnormal location for one of the world’s premier Porsche dealerships, but in the early 1950s, business was booming for the local aficionado and importer Hubert Brundage. After acquiring the rights to Volkswagen distribution in much of the southeast, he opened Brumos — a race-focused outfit that would become a mainstay in on-track culture for the next five decades, and win various events alongside Hurley Haywood, an iconic driver during the era. After becoming a domineering name within the sport, Brumos was acquired by Field Automotive Group in 2015 and would close its doors indefinitely. But now, a 35,000 square-foot museum has been announced to remember the team’s winningest vehicles, including (but not limited to) the Brumos 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, 1967 910, 1958 Watson sprint car, 1979 Porsche 935, and Steve McQueen’s Gulf-liveried 917K from his film, “Le Mans.” With over 17 vehicles on the showroom floor, Brumos’ Automotive Collection is now open for public perusal.
