911UK Cars & Coffee At Precision Porsche

911UK Cars & Coffee on Saturday 29th April hosted by our expert team at Precision.

On the day, members experienced Precisions state of the art service facility whilst enjoying a coffee with fellow enthusiasts and the Precision team. Using the latest Porsche PIWIS testers, Precisions Porsche trained technicians were able to provide one-to-ones and diagnose any fault codes/errors detected and understand the car's recorded data including Rev Range activity. 

In support of forum member “deMort”, members were able to help his daughter raise money and enable her to visit Zambia and Botswana as a volunteer at a local school in Mkushi. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/zambiaexpedition 

911UK moderators were also present at Precision, with 911UK stickers, event passes and lanyards.

Precision Porsche Would Like To Welcome Our New Head Detailer - Martin Pennington

Martin Pennington has recently joined us after spending the past 20 years detailing a wide array of vehicles. His extensive background includes: Head Detailer for McLaren Automotive, Previous winner of Rolls-Royce and Mercedes Benz National Concours, working on Ayrton Senna’s JPS Lotus-Renault 97T and 6 magazine featured vehicles.

Martin’s vast knowledge has been put to work on this 1984 911 Turbo. Below is the multistage process carried out to bring the vehicle back to showroom condition.

  1. Deep cleanse to the exterior bodywork.

  2. Door shuts, rubbers and windows cleaned with all purpose cleaner (APC).

  3. Bodywork decontaminated using Clay Bar, Tar Remover and Iron Remover.

  4. Vehicle air dried.

  5. All exterior rubbers masked for protection prior to machine polishing.

  6. Paintwork visually assessed.

  7. Stage 1 - Heavy cut machine polish.

  8. Stage 2 - Paintwork refined.

  9. Ceramic Primer applied.

  10. 1st layer of Super Hydrophobic Ceramic Coating (Britemax) applied to bodywork and wheels.

  11. 2nd coating applied.

  12. Ceramic coating applied to all exterior plastics.

Porsche axes all diesel cars from its range

Porsche has confirmed it has axed all diesel engine options from its range with immediate effect. They said the decision was made due to a 'cultural shift' by the brand's customers which means that 'demand for diesel models is falling'. Porsche customers will no longer have the option of a new diesel-powered Macan, Panamera or Cayenne as Porsche switches full attention to petrol and hybrid models.

And fanning the flames of a complete move away from the 'devil' fuel, Porsche confirmed in a statement that the Macan S Diesel had been 'taken out of the production programme' too, meaning it will only sell petrol-powered 4x4s for the foreseeable future.

No matter. If you own a diesel variant, bring it to Precision Porsche for all its servicing and maintenance and take advantage of our Fixed price Servicing, available on all Porsche models.

Next Porsche GT3 to be turbocharged with 8-spd PDK

A new report claims the next-generation  GT3 will forego its naturally-aspirated flat-6 engine in favor of a new turbocharged flat-6 unit. They also said an 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission will handle shifting duties. Although forced induction may leave some loyalists feeling soured, power will supposedly climb to 550 horsepower, up from the current 911 GT3's 500 hp. The current car employs a 4.0-liter flat-6 engine.

Porsche will perform a balancing act with the addition of a turbocharger system, which means added weight to the car. The report said the next 911 GT3 will rely more on high-strength materials to offset any weight gains. Active aerodynamic systems will likely be present, too.

Ahead of the next 911, which should debut in late 2018, Porsche will reveal the 2018 911 GT3 RS at the Geneva motor show. Images of the new car already leaked and show more aggressive front fascia and other exterior tweaks. We'll also likely see a 20hp increase to 520 hp total. 

Whether you have a turbo-d GT3 or naturally aspirated version, here at Precision we offer fixed price servicing on all models, using only genuine OEM parts, ensuring your Porsche warranty remains intact. At more preferable rates than a main dealer.

See you soon.

Brake squeal is nothing to worry about, assures Porsche.

Screen Shot 2018-02-05 at 10.17.00.jpg

The high-pitched noise sometimes emitted from brake pads and rotors that causes stress, and sometimes embarrassment is a completely normal occurrence, say Porsche.

In an overly informative video explaining what brake squeal is, and why it happens, owners should rest easy knowing the noise occurs when energy and heat convert to vibrations. The brake rotor then acts as a "speaker" and amplifies the vibrations to create the squeal. In Porsche cars specifically, the large brake pads can create more squeal at low speeds due to pad pressure distribution. But, if an owner is concerned, a Precision Porsche technician can confirm the noise is nothing more than the parts operating in a normal fashion.

So don't worry too much about the brake squeal. Instead, just enjoy the car no matter what obscure sounds it may make. Besides, a Porsche powertrain and its associated soundtrack should more than make up for occasional brake squeal.

Fixed Price servicing on all Porsche GT models

At Precision Porsche we offer Fixed Price Servicing on all Porsche models including the GT's and because we only use genuine Porsche parts your warranty always remains intact. Using the very latest Porsche diagnostic equipment we offer more favourable rates than a main dealer.

GT 911s are rare. Only one of them was built in limited-series numbers, for example. They’re also not as fragile as you may think – the 996 and 997-era cars didn’t even suffer from the oil leak issues that famously let down other variants. The ‘Mezger’ engine is hugely strong – and although it was replaced in the 991-series car, and the first ones of these subsequently blew themselves up, they should all have been substituted by now with perfectly solid motors.

Porsche Panamera for 2018

Many of our customers drive Porsche Panameras and Precision Porsche are happy to offer them Fixed price Servicing , ensuring their Porsche Warranty remains intact by only using genuine Porsche parts.

The new 2018 Panamera is called the Sport Turismo. Four variants of the model will be available for 2018—4, 4 E-Hybrid, 4S, and Turbo. But if you’re in the Panamera game for ultimate speed, it’s the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid—only available in the original body style—you’ll want. Coupling the 550-hp twin-turbocharged V-8 with a 136-hp electric motor, Porsche’s magic math yields a combined output of 680 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque. Which is just about enough.

1964 Porsche (901) 911 - restored by Porsche

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 11.46.40.jpg

Porsche is ready to show off the oldest 911 in its possession after three years of meticulous restoration: a 1964 901. Porsche purchased the rare car in 2014 after a German television show focused on finding old treasures stumbled upon the car during an episode. Upon its discovery, the team immediately contacted the Porsche Museum, which verified it was an incredibly rare car. The company paid an undisclosed amount for the 1964 901 after a professional appraised the car.

In three years, Porsche worked to restore the car back to its original state, which was even more satisfying since the car was never modified in any way. The results are downright remarkable noting the car's original condition.

The company used genuine body parts from other 911 models and the engine, transmission, electrics, and interior were all repaired in the same manner. Restorers took great care to retain parts and fragments when able to keep the car as original as possible. 

The 1964 901 turned 911 will be on display at the Porsche Museum through April 8, 2018 at the special exhibition “911 (901 No. 57) – A legend takes off.”

Here at Precision we specialise in restoring and servicing all Porsches, although not all are as old as this one. Please call to discuss your Porsche project.
