Last month, the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018 was brought to a close by an award ceremony and dinner held at the stunning Pennyhill Park in Bagshot Surrey.
Every Porche Centre from across the network that competeted in the Restoracing Competition were in attendance together with their approved repairers to mark the end of the racing season celebrating 20 years of the Porsche Boxster. We are absolutely delighted to announce that we were awarded the 'Fans Choice Award' for the paint effect.
The Porsche Centre Wolverhampton race race team were joined by Steve Shore of Shorade Bodycentre whose Senior Paint Technician Greg Webb was responsible for recreating the 'Pink Pig'. The design was taken from the 917/20 Coupé 1971 Le Mans entry designed by Porsche designer Anatole Lapine displaying butchers cuts of meat hence the famous nickname.
Simon Priest Centre Principal commented, 'It has been an absolute honour to be involved in such a prestigous event over the last few months. All of the team have been totally dedicated and commited to the Restoracing Competition and I would like to offer a very big thank you to all involved including the customers that also joined us to offer their support. We are very much looking forward to the 2019 season.'
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
