Last weekend saw Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre hosting the annual NEC Classic Car Show.
Celebrating 70 years of Porsche history, visitors were treated to the sight of lots of restored classic Porsche models. As a focal point of the Porsche stand, the starting grid for the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018 was recreated. The line up of 16 Boxster 986 models was a stunning sight and included our Le Mans replica the ‘Pink Pig’.
As the 2018 competition was such a huge success, Porsche Cars Great Britain, in conjunction with the Porsche Club Great Britain, have agreed to a second series of races in 2019. As soon as the dates and venues have been confirmed, we will update our website.
* 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.
