This September, the heart of our Porsche Restoracing Competition entry, a 986 Boxster S, will be getting an overhaul. After covering 137,000 miles during its 17 year life, this 986 has is about to get a new short engine.
The original engine is still in working order and would have been suitable for many more years and miles of normal motoring. However, ahead of racing the 986, we want to ensure we have the most amount of power available from an engine we can trust. Visit our Facebook page to view our progress stripping the old engine. Short engines for 986 vehicles are available from our Porsche Centre should you wish to overhaul your engine too.
Thank you for all of your feedback on this project so far, we hope that you’re enjoying it as much as the team here at Porsche Centre Wilmslow. For further information please call 01625 522222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
*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.
