2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Boxster 986, a car that fundamentally shaped the Porsche brand and brought a whole new generation of customers to the Porsche family. To celebrate this, Porsche Cars Great Britain has initiated the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition. Taking place in 2018, the competition requires us not only to restore a classic Boxster 986, but to get it race-ready (including race livery) and hit the track for a series of races at iconic British circuits.
For this project, Porsche Centre Cambridge has teamed up with Porsche Centre East London and Porsche Centre Colchester in addition to our Porsche Recommended Body Repairer, Lancaster Body Centre.
We very much look forward to sharing progress updates along the restoration journey.
The preparation and spraying of the bodyshell is now complete and it is currently displayed in the showroom at Porsche Centre Colchester.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
