Porsche Centre Leicester will be attending the Donington Historic Festival on Saturday 30 April and showcasing this year's Restoration Competition entry, a Porsche 968 Club Sport.
The front engine 'transaxle' cars were a departure from the traditional Porsche recipe and designed as a means to tempt new customers to the Porsche brand and even at one point to be a successor to the 911. Whilst this ambition was never realised, the models are still a hugely important yet under-appreciated part of the Porsche history.
The restoration of our 1993 Porsche Club Sport, which has covered only 87,000 miles, is well underway. The body has been fully stripped and all previous repairs made good. The engine and transmission have been removed and painstakingly stripped, cleaned and rebuilt.
The festival promises to be a great day out; in between watching iconic motor cars fighting it out on the track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks and enjoy the off-track attractions.
*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.
