Porsche gives us a treat with 20 perfect classics
As it is the 70th birthday of Porsche this year, they really know how to celebrate, by showing off some of their beautiful classic cars. They only a have a few months to get in as much Porsche party power as possible.
Twenty stunning classic models have been restored by the cream of the Porsche crop and will be displayed at the NEC classic motor show from the 9th -11th of November. You can find out more about the show and buy tickets by following the link here.
These special edition cars - that will be sold at the end of the year - were restored by hand by Porsche Recommended Repairers to bring these cars back to a perfect and new condition. Now that's a challenge.
Ten of the cars are first generation Porsche Boxsters, some hovering around the 20-year-old mark, whereas the rest of the cars are a combination of air-cooled, water-cooled and transaxle Porsches of old. All have been lovingly painted with a 'liquid metal' shade only found on the 918 Spyder - the dark silver suits them down to a tee.
All the cars have restored using classic, original Porsche parts. This makes them as pure as possible, like the day they left the factory, all those years ago. The models include a bespoke interior, keeping to the original style yet refreshing them to a modern standard. Vehicle tracking and navigation will also be included in the cars.
And to finish them off - All 20 cars will have a commemorative plaque with great honour, for their so-to-be owners.
There is also more at the classic motor show than just those 20 cars. A secondary display of track Porsches, from the 'Restoracing' competition, will be showing their colours at the show. The competition (in short) was set for dealerships to find and race prepare a 986 Boxster S, showing off a livery from Porsche's past racing cars. The project and the race were so well received and clearly, a lot of fun, that it will be run again next year.
One last surprise will be the 'Project 70' racing car based on the 1965 short-wheelbase 911. This car has been driven by an esteemed collection of names - such as Richard Attwood, Derek Bell, and Anthony Reid.
So, what are you waiting for? You still have time to grab yourself a ticket for the NEC Classic motor show to get a glimpse of these fantastic Porsches of old. You never know, you might be one of the lucky buyers.
