Porsche 968 Club Sport

Restoration project showcased at Donington Historic Festival


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.

Visit the Donington Historic Festival website for further information about the event. You can also view our restoration page for the latest update on our Porsche 968 Club Sport.
