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 East London has teamed up with Porsche Centre Cambridge 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 Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
