How To Choose The Perfect Classic Porsche

Classic Porsche

Bring Your Dream Garage To Life with Porsche Classic

When imagining the garage of your dreams, it probably includes a Porsche of some description. Whether it would be a futuristic Hybrid, a powerful GT product or a beautifully prepared Porsche Classic, our four Porsche Centres at Dick Lovett can help bring your dream garage to life.

You might know that our Centres in Bristol, Cardiff, Swindon and Tewkesbury sell the latest sports cars Porsche have to offer, but did you know that they also stock a fine selection of Classic Porsches? The term ‘Classic Porsche’ includes Porsche models prior to a 911 996 and a Boxster 986.

Whilst we always encourage our customers to enjoy their cars as intended, we aim to stock cars with attractive mileages. Available from Porsche Centre Swindon is this Porsche 993 Targa. Registered in 1997, this Silver 993 has covered only 28,218 miles, is beautifully original and in supurb condition.

Our 285 BHP ’Varioram’ Targa comes with Porsche’s Tiptronic automatic gearbox and many other features, including a rear wiper, climate control and windscreen with graduated top tint. This 911 Targa is on sale for £77,850.

As an Official Classic Centre, Porsche Centre Swindon is experienced in all types of older car. However we are especially pleased to be able to offer this ultra-rare 993 Carrera S Vesuvio with only 66,000 miles covered. The Vesuvio differentiates itself with a unique colour scheme including contrasting mirrors, engine grille and door handles, complementing its wider ‘Turbo’ body.

With climate control, an electric sunroof, rear wiper and a graduated top tint on the windscreen, the features on this Porsche would make for a very pleasing ownership experience, not forgetting of course that majestic 3.6 litre flat-six air-cooled engine. Priced at £89,950 this is a fantastic opportunity to own a very desirable and rare Classic.

Our other Dick Lovett Porsche Centres also stock classic Porsches in their Pre-Approved selection.

Porsche Centre Bristol currently has this fully restored Porsche 924 Lux from 1982 in striking Bright Blue Metallic. Originally considered the ‘entry level Porsche’, these ‘trans-axle’ cars are now developing a cult following all of their own. Having had a full Porsche restoration this car would add to any collection as a time-warp piece of Porsche’s history. This manual version of the 924 has done 78,248 miles and is on sale for £24,990 which enables someone to become a classic Porsche owner at an attainable price – whilst also avoiding the costs and time of a full restoration.

Porsche Centre Cardiff also buy and sell classic Porsches and currently have this 1996 993 Carrera 4 in Polar silver metallic. Available for £69,990 with 84,540 miles on the clock, this car has had an extensive overhaul by Porsche Centre Cardiff; its timeless colour scheme having also had a recent refresh.

This car is for driving all year round, with its 4-wheel drive system offering increased performance and safety both in the dry and wet. This Porsche has a manual gearbox with 285 BHP and can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in just 5.3 seconds. Additional features include electric sunroof, green tinted windscreen, rear Wiper and third brake light.

If you're still not certain which classic Porsche is right for you, you can contact Porsche Centre Bristol, Cardiff, Swindon or Tewkesbury and our team will be happy to help. For an in depth discussion about either purchasing a classic Porsche, or work that you would like to have carried out on your own Porsche, our Classic Manager, Stephen Brown would be happy to assist you.
