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.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. 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.
