Porsche GT2 RS sets new record at the 'ring

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 09.18.30.jpg

Porsche has set a new Nurburgring lap record for a ‘road-approved sports car’ in a 911 GT2 RS, setting a time of 6:47.3, almost a five full seconds faster than the 6:52 set by the Lamborghini Huracan earlier in 2017. 

Wacking out 690 horses from a six-cylinder biturbo engine, the GT2 RS was already known to be the most powerful 911 ever built, however, this result confirms that it is also the fastest 911 ever.

At Precision Porsche we look after many Porsche GT cars so please check out our Fixed Price Servicing Menu and we look forward to seeing you soon, here in East Sussex.

Screen Shot 2017-09-25 at 10.06.15.jpg

Porsche’s performance cars rule the streets, and now the brand is taking over the high seas.

Porsche is best known for its high-performance road cars, but it's more well-rounded than you may think. Studio F.A. Porsche (formerly known as Porsche Design Studio), crafts everything from business suits, to laptops, and even kitchen knives, but Studio F.A. Porsche has just debuted what may be its flagship — a big boat. Buyers can choose from a variety of color combinations to customize the interior look. The result is something Porsche’s designers call a “Grand Tourismo for the seas,”  The GTT 115 Superyacht will be displayed at the Monaco Boat Show next week. For all your Porsche Servicing - (excluding the GT 115) visit our Fixed Price Servicing Menu  and we hope to see you cruising down soon to Precision.

Neglected Martini-liveried Porsche Cayman gets a facelift

Our new Detailer Daniel had his work cut out for him today when one of our customers bought in his badly neglected Porsche Cayman. Tch-tch.

However, there’s nothing Dan likes better than a challenge (especially on a Friday) and with a bit of elbow grease and 20 years detailing experience the Cayman was soon returned to its former Guards Red glory and returned to its owner who has promised to look after it a bit more carefully in the future.

Steve McQueen Le Mans Porsche 917 sells for $14 million

Screen Shot 2017-09-03 at 11.46.52.jpg

The film Le Mans remains one of the greatest pieces of motorsport cinema and the star of that film for many of us is the Porsche 917K that takes home the checkered flag, rather than super cool Steve McQueen. As is the case with most films featuring cars, many identical ones were used to capture the footage and one of those cars used in the film just crossed the auction block at Monterey Car Week, USA for a cool $14 million.

The Le mans production crew was tasked with rounding up a fleet of vehicles to use for filming. Chassis 917-024 (above) was part of this group and it still sports its iconic Gulf livery. It was then sold off to a collector in France in 1978 and didn't resurface until 2001. Found in a warehouse, it made headlines in the car collector world and was snatched up by a buyer in Switzerland. The car was then duly restored. It would be great to see this beast out on a race track where it was designed to run. Perhaps the new owner will be back in Monterey soon, and this car will be rolling off a trailer to be topped up with racing fuel. 

At Precision Porsche we look after all Porsche models from the classic 356 and 917, to the Boxster, Cayman and Cayenne through to the latest 991 and offer full Main Dealer Services at more competitive rates.

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 13.34.32.jpg

The new 493bhp 4.0-litre engine, ranks alongside the likes of the Mercedes AMG GT R and the Nissan GT-R Nismo as one of the top ten fastest production cars to have set a time at the ‘Green Hell’. At Precision Porsche we look after all Porsche models from the Porsche 356 up to the Porsche 911 GT3 and only use genuine Porsche parts, ensuring your warranty remains intact.

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.
