On Friday 9 to Sunday 11 November, the Classic Motor Show returned to Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre. Joining together classic car enthusiasts from all over the UK, with more than 3,000 iconic classic vintage cars and motorbikes.
Porsche Cars Great Britain was once again in attendance with the largest stand to date. Celebrating 70 years of Porsche history, Porsche has restored a number of classic Porsche models with a total of 27 cars on the stand. This included a showstopping display of all 16 Restoracing 986 Boxsters, set out on a starting grid in overall race finish order. Our Martini Boxster sat proudly in sixth place amongst the other restored models.

* 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.
