Many of our customers have been following our progress in the 2018 Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition and we are pleased to share the latest news from the competition that celebrates 20 years of the Boxster (Type 986), a car that fundamentally shaped the Porsche business.
Our fully restored Brumos-inspired Boxster racecar has attracted attention with its striking and nostalgic livery. Inspiration was drawn from an original 1973 Brumos RSR owned by one of our customers and the similarities are evident through the iconic colours and details they both share. Swipe through the images above to see our comparison photos of the two cars side by side.
Following the first two rounds of racing in May and June, the racecar has been on display at our Centre as part of our Sportscar Together Day and will be showcased this summer at the Leicester Motorshow and Silverstone Classic, followed by the Festival of Porsche at Brands Hatch later in the year.
* 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.
