Porsche 917; Porsche 956; Porsche 919 Hybrid. Three icons, each with a common link, victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Each of these race cars also played a valuable role in helping hone technology on the race track that was then translated to Porsche cars for the street.
In celebration of this success, and in special honour of three British racing drivers, Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and Nick Tandy, who helped deliver these victories, a special series of the 911 Carrera 4 GTS has been developed by Porsche Cars Great Britain and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur – the ‘British Legends Edition’.
Each driver played an important role in the design and configuration of ‘their’ British Legends Edition, incorporating personal preferences and reminiscences of their own experiences racing with Porsche at Le Mans. For instance, Alcantara interior trim creates a link to the focussed ambience of a racing car cockpit. And to offer a manual gearbox or the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch transmission was important, to allow each car to be specified according to driving style.
Fuel consumption 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition in 1/100km (mpg): Urban 13.0 – 10.9 (21.7–25.9); Extra urban 7.4 – 7.1 (38.2–39.8); Combined 9.5 – 8.5 (29.7–33.2); CO2 emissions in g/km 216–192.

Porsche Centre Leeds, an official Porsche GB Classic Partner, is privileged to be able to offer this unique example of a Carrera 2.7 RS Touring, car number 410. This particular RS has had a full documented nut and bolt restoration by Porsche AG Germany, with photographic evidence at each stage. Never before has Porsche AG restored a 2.7 RS.
Porsche Centre Leeds has available this 911 964 Targa in Guards Red.
Presented in Guards Red, this particular Targa has covered just 61,797 miles since first registration on 9 September 1992.The five previous owners have all cared for the car and the condition is testament to the time spent on the vehicle. Originally supplied to a gentleman by AFN Porsche London, the service book confirms regular services being completed by various official Porsche Centres including Porsche Centre Nottingham, Porsche Centre Glasgow, Porsche Centre Newcastle and our own Service Team here at Porsche Centre Leeds. A file is supplied with the car that details work in the car's life including a number of MOT certificates dating back to the early 2000s. Also worth noting is the installation of an immobiliser and a sale receipt from when the car exchanged hands to its third owner.
The Targa roof is unblemished and all the seals sit as they should on a 911 of this age. The bodywork is very good and the black roll over hoop provides a great contrast to the Guards Red finish. The leather interior is in good condition with no marks on the steering wheel rim. A key feature of the interior is the installation of the Porsche Classic Radio Navigation system that brings modern features to the cars infotainment system but maintains a classic look when sat in the original radio mounting within the dashboard.
Porsche Centre Leeds has available this 911E in Burgandy.
In 1969 Porsche produced just 954 911E Coupés. The car was manufactured on 2 September 1968 and was first registered on 20 November 1968 making it one of the first B Series (Long wheelbase) cars produced.
This particular vehicle has undergone an extensive four year restoration to a very high standard. This excellent example has retained its originality by using every original part of the car wherever possible instead of simply replacing worn items with new parts. The engine, transmission and drive shafts were reconditioned by Mike Bainbridge of MB Porsche Engineering. The car was recorded with a catalogue of pictures that document its progress from start to finish.
Intended as the luxury model, the 911E came standard (in most markets) with the comfort package of features including: ventilated brake discs with aluminium callipers, velour carpeting, a leather covered steering wheel, heavy bumper guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, gold coloured script on the rear deck, increased wheelbase for improved handling performance. The car was imported to Los Angeles from the Zuffenhausen factory and lived its life in California, USA in the San Francisco area before being purchased and taken to the UK on 24 May 2010.
Porsche Centre Leeds has available this 2.7 RS.
Finished in Aubergine Purple, with white script writing and silver Fusch alloy rims, this car was fitted with the following options from new: Sports seats - driver and passenger, 3-point automatic rear seatbelts, additional main beam headlights, yellow halogen H3 above bumper, electric antenna, right front loudspeaker.
The car has had eight owners in total and has covered 72,716 miles. Originally a German car it was imported into the UK in 1990 and has spent its life in London and Surrey. The car is in stunning condition throughout.
Supplied with the car is full documentation of the restoration work that has been completed, including labour timesheets and receipts detailing exactly what work has been carried out. Evidence documenting the hours and detail into restoring the vehicle comes with the car as does a full library of photographs showing the RS at each point of its restoration.
Porsche Centre Leeds has available this 911 930 Turbo in Guards Red.
The iconic 911 Turbo made its debut at the 1974 Paris Motor Show. In 1975 the cars began to roll off the production line and it became the flagship 911, combining incredible performance, a head-turning design and modern comforts such as air conditioning and electric windows. The car's performance was thanks to the 3.3 Turbo charged flat-6 that produced 300 bhp and propelled the car to 60 mph in around 5.0 seconds. The body was wider than the standard 911 creating the name ‘Turbo look’. To help keep the car planted to the road, Porsche used the iconic ‘tea tray’ spoiler that reduced aerodynamic lift from 397 IB to just 38 IB which helped to ensure every bit of its blistering performance could be taken advantage of.
The example we have here today is in superb condition and has been meticulously maintained throughout its life. First registered on 10 April 1989 this 911 Turbo has a detailed history. The supplied file provides MOT certificates dating back to 1992 and a collection of tax discs dating back to 1999. At the back of the supplied file is a number of receipts that comprehensively detail the work completed on the car since 1993. The paperwork supports the car's service history and shows that it has been completed at the correct intervals for the model.
This Guards Red Turbo really stands out in the showroom and after 28 years on the road, it is still a head turner. The seals still sit as they should and the rear lenses have not shown any signs of fading which further complements the car's condition. The black and silver polished wheels have no pitting or corrosion and provide a classic contract to the vibrant red paint. The interior is very much to the same standard, the black/red leather seats have no cracks or tears and the cabin is very well presented.
Our Porsche-trained Technicians are currently restoring a Porsche 356 Pre A.
The car has not been started for over 10 years and, as a result, one of the barrels had ceased. We are now completely stripping and rebuilding the entire engine. This 550th 356 is also experiencing electrical problems with 66 years of natural oxidization causing resistance in the wiring loom.
Andrew Wexham, Classic Technician, said ‘’It’s a unique opportunity to work on such an early luxury sports car, one that was to set a standard for years to come. This beautiful piece of engineering was once owned by the legendary racing driving Betty Haig and I am looking forward to completing the restoration.’’
