2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the 986 Boxster, 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 are hosting the Porsche Classic 'Restoracing' Competition. The competition requires us not only to restore a classic 986 Boxster, but to get it race-ready (including race livery) and then hit the tracks for a series of races at iconic British circuits.
We are delighted to introduce our competition entry, a 986 Porsche Boxster S. The team members restoring this car to its former glory are Lee Wibberley, Dan Jackson, Josh Morris, Rob Latham, Jason Cavanaugh, Paula Yates, Dan Bennett, Liam Taffe, Danny Parker, Ian Alton, Mike Franklin-Smith, Adam Wallace and Adam Calvert.
We very much look forward to working on the car and sharing project updates along the way. Look out for our next article where you can help decide on the livery for our 986 Boxster S.
*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.
