Our Current Projects

Porsche Centre Swindon Restorations

Project 20

To mark 70 years of Porsche, Project 20 has seen 20 thorough restorations carried out on models from the classic Porsche range. The models ranged from a 914 1.7 manual coupé from 1970 to a 986 Boxster from 2000.

As an official Porsche Classic Partner, Porsche Centre Swindon was delighted to work on two of the vehicles, giving them the highest levels of care and attention. At the NEC Classic Car Show in November 2018 the team was delighted to showcase these restorations.

As part of Project 20, Porsche Centre Swindon fully restored a 911 SC from 1982 and a 968 Sport from 1996. The two cars needed various levels of renovation, but both were finished to the most exacting standards.

Porsche Classic Motoroil

Porsche Classic Motoroil

Regardless of mileage, you should change the engine oil of your classic Porsche once a year as short trips are particularly detrimental to the oil. Frequently starting the engine when it is cold causes more fuel, combustion products and moisture to get into the oil.

Porsche Classic Motoroil has been specially designed by Porsche to suit the specific characteristics and demands of an air-cooled flat engine to ensure optimal performance.
