Our 986 Boxster S is going through the first stages of its transformation from an everyday sports car into a race car. This stage requires us to strip the car down so we have taken off the convertible roof and removed the seats, carpets and door cards. We have also taken out the engine and gearbox for them to be stripped and rebuilt. The car is now ready for the next stage which is fitting the roll cage - very important for racing.
We are restoring a 986 Boxster S because 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Boxster range, a car that fundamentally shaped the Porsche business and brought a whole new generation of customers to the brand. To celebrate this anniversary, Porsche are hosting the Classic 'Restoracing' Competition, where Centres restore and race a classic 986 Boxster S.
Now we need your help! Each entry has to have a full race livery inspired by a classic Porsche racing design. We would like you to help us decide which livery we choose. Please visit our Facebook page to see our three options: 917 Salzburg, 919 and the 935 Apple Car. Please leave a comment saying which livery you think we should have on our Restoracing car. You can also see more details about our car, plus photos of the restoration in progress.
For more information on our Restoracing entry, or for any other Porsche enquiries, please call 01625 445545 to speak to a member of our team.
*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.
