Porsche Centre Swindon are delighted to showcase their contributions to Project 20 at the Classic Car Show at the NEC on the 9th, 10th and 11th November.

Project 20 has seen 20 detailed and comprehensive restorations from the Classic Porsche range and marks 70 years of Porsche sports cars, spanning a 914 1.7 Manual Coupé from 1970 to a 986 Boxster from 2000. Each car in this spectacular line-up has received the highest attention-to-detail at every stage from an Official Classic Porsche Centre.

Porsche Centre Swindon has fully restored a 911 SC from 1982 and a 968 Sport from 1996. As an official Classic Porsche Centre, Porsche Centre Swindon had the expertise to restore the two Porsches which needed various levels of renovation. The 968 was a larger scale project than the 911 and required more extensive work, but both have been beautifully finished to the same exacting standard.

Mechanically each vehicle has been fastidiously restored with every single moving part inspected, refreshed and/or replaced with brand new Genuine Porsche Classic parts. All mechanical work has been undertaken by our renowned team of Classic Certified technicians ensuring the best possible results.

A unified colour scheme has been selected for the 20 cars in the project. The exterior uses the iconic ‘Liquid Metal’ paint scheme first seen on the 918 Spyder Hypercar and is complemented by new glass, lights, trims and wheels. With contrasting matte black details and black wheels, each exterior is flawless and factory fresh. Once inside the car, the highlights continue with bespoke satin ‘Porsche’ seat centres and fully refreshed dashboards, carpeting and a commemorative plaque to finish off the aesthetic makeover.
