Porsche Classics at the Castle - Sunday 3rd September

Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 10.07.49.jpg

Classics at the Castle will take place on Sunday, 3rd September at Hedingham Castle. This year will again see the presentation of an appreciation of all the classic ‘KG’ Porsches that has been at the heart of the event over the last 10 years, but with a move away from the undeniably spectacular but ultimately more ‘corporate’ feel of recent years.

The 2017 edition will be aiming for a return to the ‘meeting of friends with a passion for Porsche’ scenario of the early iterations. Consequently for 2017 the moving parades will be replaced with a static chronological presentation on the long driveway to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the advent of the 911S in 1967. This will be one of the most complete line-ups of the 911S in this anniversary year, and will give visitors the opportunity to get close to the cars and their owners.

It will include all the models in the ‘S’ production spectrum, including those built in the Porsche AG period until the ‘S’ designation was deleted. There are some really special cars pencilled in, including two rare right-hand-drive S models from 1967– 2.2-litre ‘S’ and ‘S’ Sport and the ex Vic Elford 2.4-litre car.

Contact can be made with Fred Hampton by emailing 356@porscheclubgb.com and for all your Porsche servicing from classics to the latest models visit our Fixed Price Service Menu  on the Precision Porsche website.

79 year-old woman caught doing 147 mph in Porsche Boxster GTS

A 79 year-old lady was caught doing 147 mph in her Porsche Boxster GTS recently, when she went for a midnight drive when she couldn't sleep. Wanting to doze off and not being unable to sleep can drive you mad. In the case of one 79-year-old woman in Namur, Belgium, it drove her to go 147 mph in her Porsche Boxster GTS and get nicked in a speed trap. When she appeared in court this month her reasoning for going so fast was "I couldn't sleep."
The lady was forced to pay a 4,000 euro fine and now faces a three-month driving ban. Bad luck, good choice of car. Talk to us about servicing and looking after your Porsche Boxster GTS.

Spotted - Facelifted Porsche Macan due out next year

Porsche is gearing up for an SUV product offensive with an all-new Cayenne due by the end of the year, while spy shots also reveal that a coupe-styled Cayenne is currently under consideration. These brand new spy shots reveal that Porsche’s smaller offering – the Macan – won’t be left out. It’s three years old, and is due a facelift.

The Macan has become a core part of Porsche’s line-up since launching in 2014, rapidly rising to become the brand’s bestseller. In 2016 Porsche delivered 237,778 cars globally - 95,642 of that figure accounted for by the Macan.

At Precision Porsche we look after a number of these great cars so please contact us for all your servicing and maintenance requirements and check out our Fixed Price Servicing page for the Porsche Macan.

Timo Bernhard leads Porsche to third straight Le Mans 24 Hours triumph

So often the stage for dramatic changes in fortune, this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours was, even by the usual standards, a positively operatic theatrical. After act after act of calamity, when the final curtain fell, the form book had been dismissed and the winning No2 Porsche of Timo Bernhard, Earl Bamber and Brendon Hartley had performed a comeback of remarkable proportions that reminded everyone that this race, more than any other, is not over until the clock has counted off the final seconds of motor racing’s longest day.

The win is Porsche’s third in a row at Le Mans, a hugely impressive achievement, given that they only returned to the top LMP1 racing in 2014 and their 19th at the 24-hour race – the most successful manufacturer at the race. But it was also an achievement for the individuals behind the wheel of the 919 Hybrid.
