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 Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . 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.
