We are delighted to announce that Porsche Centre Swindon has placed third for a film submitted to an international Porsche Classic competition.
Porsche Centre Swindon entered the Porsche Classic Partner Movie Competition with a short film which explores the work that takes place at Porsche Classic Life at Bicester Heritage.
The moving film, Passion Restored, tells the story of a man and his Porsche growing old together and how, by taking his beloved car to Porsche Classic Life, he was able to relive his youth by restoring the car to its former glory. The narrator reads an emotive poem written by Matthew Arnold which accompanies images of the restoration of the classic 911 T, concluding with the car bursting back to life on a race track.
Stephen Brown, manager of Porsche Classic Life, and Lucy Hawkins, Dick Lovett Group Digital Marketing Manager, were at Nürburgring, Germany to collect the prize from motor racing legend Derek Bell. The competition was won by Porsche Classic Centre Gelderland, with Porsche Centre Niederrhein second.
Lucy said “To secure third place is incredible. It was great to get positive feedback from the judges but, more importantly to us, it’s fantastic to have a creative film to showcase our exceptional services at Porsche Classic Life at Bicester Heritage.”
Porsche Classic Life is the only official standalone facility in the UK to focus solely on Porsche Classic, providing a range of services from buying and selling classic models to parts, servicing and repairs.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
