Porsche 986 Restoracing Competition

Marking 20 years of the 986 Boxster

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Boxster 986, a car that fundamentally shaped the Porsche brand and brought a whole new generation of customers to the Porsche family. To celebrate this, Porsche Cars Great Britain has initiated the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition. Taking place in 2018, the competition requires us not only to restore a classic Boxster 986, but to get it race-ready (including race livery) and hit the track for a series of races at iconic British circuits.

For this project, Porsche Centre Cambridge has teamed up with Porsche Centre East London and Porsche Centre Colchester in addition to our Porsche Recommended Body Repairer, Lancaster Body Centre.

We very much look forward to sharing progress updates along the restoration journey.
