Porsche news update - edition 1 2018

Porsche Macan

In this edition of Porsche news update we take a fresh look at the Macan ‑ a compact SUV with all the practicalities a car of this class brings, but one that defies convention with its superb level of performance, technology and luxury.

We also unveil the revolutionary and performance filled Mission E – the first all-electric concept from Porsche. Now, ahead of a road-going Mission E release, Porsche have unveiled the Mission E Cross Turismo. Featuring a low-cut bonnet and heavily curved wings, the Mission E Cross Turismo is unmistakably Porsche; sharing distinctive design DNA with the iconic Porsche 911.

In 1969 Porsche produced just 954 911E Coupes. The car was manufactured on the 2nd September 1968 making it one of the first B Series (Long wheelbase) cars produced. This particular vehicle has undergone an extensive 4 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. The car was imported to Los Angeles from the Zuffenhausen factory and lived its life in California, USA around the San Francisco area before being purchased and taken to the UK on the 24th May 2010.

Latest Porsche Classic project

1

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.’’

As a Porsche Classic Partner Centre, we carry out repairs and restorations of all classic Porsche models up to and including the 996 generation 911 and the 986 generation Boxster.
