We have now finished the restoration of our 911 Targa here at Porsche Centre Leicester, this, a project embarked on to commemorate the relaunch of the iconic Targa model earlier this year.
On Sunday 21 September, we were one of many Porsche Centres that took a fully restored Porsche Classic to Brands Hatch for the National 911 Restoration Competition Finale. With work completed ahead of the event we were able to take our restored 1986 911 3.2 Targa SSE for the final judging. The competition was split into five categories from Best Marketing/PR to Best Best Mechanical. However, we are all very proud to announce that Porsche Centre Leicester picked up the top prize for the Best Overall restoration.
It has been a gruelling process but we are very pleased to have brought this car back to its former glory for all to see.
For more information on the Porsche Classic services available at our Porsche Centre, please contact a member of our Service Team on 01162 764 488 or via email us.
Finally, we would like to thank our Porsche Approved Body Repairer, Chartwell Derby, for their efforts with this project too. We hope you have enjoyed hearing about this exciting project, please do come into our Centre to see the car on display, if you have not yet done so.
*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.
