1986 911 Carrera LHD Restoration Project


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.
