On Thursday 15 February Porsche Centre Bournemouth was delighted to host our first ever Porsche Classic event.
Over 170 guests enjoyed fifteen spectacular classic models on display including a 356A Speedster, a 911 Carrera RS, a 924 GTS owned by Derek Bell and, of course, our Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition entry Boxster 986.
Undoubtedly the highlight of the evening was our very special guest, British racing legend, Richard Attwood. Guests had the opportunity to ask Richard a number of questions during a highly entertaining Q&A session conducted by Lee Sibley, editor of Total 911 magazine.
Mike Gillespie, Aftersales Manager said “We at Porsche Centre Bournemouth are passionate about Porsche Classic and, as 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the first ever Porsche production car, we wanted to celebrate this significant milestone with our very own Porsche Classic evening. It goes without saying that we are excited about the future and where technology such as E-Performance will take us, but we will always have a special fondness for the heritage and history of classic Porsche cars.”

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. 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. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
