Currently on display at Porsche Centre Glasgow is the shell of a 1986 911 Carrera (LHD) which was kindly loaned to us by Porsche Cars Great Britain. The original car was written off due to flood damage, and after a salvage company dismantled the car and sold all of the useable parts, the body shell was left in a field and slowly started to rot.
Porsche Cars Great Britain bought the shell as a project and have restored half of the car, whilst preserving the other half as it was, corrosion and all, to demonstrate the skills within the Porsche recommended network on classic Porsche cars.
This project is a testament to the level of skill used in the restoration and it has also been displayed at various events across the country including Silverstone Classic and NEC Classic.
As we are a Porsche Classic Partner, the car will be on display here at the Centre for the next few weeks so feel free to pop along and have a look for yourself.
Please contact a member of the team on 0141 885 6911 for more information on our restoration and classic work.
* 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.
