Porsche Centre Swindon attended the Bicester Heritage Flywheel Festival on the weekend of 23 June to promote their new partnership with Porsche Classic Life. Our team welcomed visitors to explore the first standalone official Porsche Classic facility and learn about the rich history of Porsche.
The Flywheel Festival was well attended, with crowds enjoying a vast display of classic cars and motorcycles both with and without racing histories, as well as an exhibition of vehicles which have appeared in films.
The line-up for the air displays included Spitfires, a Lancaster bomber and a Tiger Moth and also saw two World War II veterans return to the skies. On the ground, Derek Bell MBE treated the crowds to a demonstration of a 2-litre 1965 Porsche 911 powering around the race track.
Porsche Classic Life, located in the old fire station, displayed a number of restored classics including a 930 Turbo, the 924 GTP Le Mans race car, Peter Lovett’s 911 2-litre race car, a 993 Carrera 4 with bodykit and a 924 Turbo. Porsche Centre Swindon’s restored 986 Boxster, currently taking part in the Classic Restoracing Competition, was also on show.
Porsche Classic Life buys and sells classic models, supplies parts and offers a complete maintenance, repair and restoration service. To find out more, call 01793 398 533 and a member of our team would be delighted to help you.
*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.
