To mark the 20th anniversary of the Porsche Boxster, Porsche Centres across the United Kingdom have been restoring and preparing a Boxster 986 to compete in the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition, run by Porsche Cars Great Britain. This year, to make the race even more interesting, each Centre has nominated a novice driver from their team to drive the car in the race.
In the last few weeks our Porsche Boxster has had the paintwork completed and the engine rebuilt. The paint colour of our car replicates the iconic Porsche Salzburg design of the 917 Le Mans winning racing car in 1970. Our final testing will shortly be underway and we look forward to sharing more details of this project with you over the coming weeks.
The first race will be held at Brands Hatch on Saturday 05 May 2018 and the second race will take place at Silverstone on Saturday 02 June 2018
* 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.
