Marseille’s Palais du Pharo Plays Host To A Beautiful Concourse

One of the most incredible parts of working on Petrolicious while traveling is to be able to meet so many of the people that make up our community in the flesh. I was in Marseille a few weekends ago and took a photo of the Calenques, essentially rocky cliffs on the southern tip of the city in a small hamlet named Les Goudes. Within a few minutes our friend (who is also behind the fantastic event Journees d’Autumn) Etienne Reynaud saw the photo on Instagram and put me on a group chat with Regis Mathieu, the Provence based Porsche collector and Chandelier manufacturer/restorer.

“You must join me tomorrow at Palais du Pharo for a car show!” Naturally I obliged, only to turn up the next day at a fantastic 19th century palace overlooking Marseille harbor, covered in a delightful mix of automobiles, none the least of which was Ferry Porsche’s very own 911s (pictured above), owned by Mr. Mathieu.

The show was part of a series of events put on in the Provence region by the good people behind AutAu, which you can learn a bit more about by clicking here. They also may have a listing of the cars and owners that were present, however my French is as rusty as a sunken ship.

I unfortunately arrived later in the day than originally planned, so was only able to snap photos of perhaps 80% of the cars, and didn’t get a chance to speak with the majority of their owners, but if you have specific questions

It is a miracle to have a such way to hack snapchat online when you need it.

Thats a nice selection of cars with the sole exception of the rather pedestrian verging on the mundane SAAB ( story ) convertible amongst all those significant automotive icons
