Back in October, Porsche Centre Wolverhampton announced our entry to the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition. We are pleased to let you know that the shell of our Boxster 986 is back, freshly painted, ready for its engine and electrics refit. The wings and panels will then be put back in place before the racing decals are applied, transforming the Boxster into our restoracing car.
The racing livery was inspired by the Porsche designer Anatole Lapine and the 1971 Le Mans 917/20 entry, nicknamed the ‘Pink Pig’ and ‘Trufflehunter’. The car caused a sensation at the circuit and secured its place in Porsche history. In addition to its iconic pink colour, our car will include the labelled body parts of the butcher-style cuts, similar to its older relation.
The racing element of the competition will take place on three famous race circuits: Silverstone, Donington Park and Brands Hatch. Race dates will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
