The Brumos Collection of Air-Cooled Racing Porsches Opens
Brumos, the biggest name in air-cooled Porsche racing history has just opened a 35,000 square foot interactive museum focused on the famous Brumos Racing Porsches. It will house more than three-dozen race and collector cars.
The Brumos Collection is separate from the original dealership that is now owned by the Fields Automotive Chain and that changed the name of the former Brumos dealership to Porsche Jacksonville. The Brumos name originally came from the Telex name of the first business: BRUndage MOtorS owned by Hubert Brundage.
The collection focuses on many of the famous number 59 red and blue liveried Porsche 911’s and the racing derivatives but also features notable one-off racing Porsches.

The car sold at the Pebble Beach Gooding and Company auction in 2017 for $14,080,000.
