Classic 911 Turbos and Targas battle for NEC glory

Published 14 November 2014

Porsche has made its manufacturer debut at the NEC Classic, with a hotly contested restoration competition.

Around 15 freshly restored Turbos and Targas took part in the event, with the winner's cup going to Leicester Porsche and its superb red 1986 Turbo-bodied Targa 3.2 SSE (pictured above).

The stunning 911 was subject to a six month restoration, with a full mechanical overhaul and new interior. The exterior bodywork was also refreshed, although the 911 still carries its original Guards Red paintwork.

Glenn Monaghan, parts manager at Leicester Porsche, said: "We pulled out all of the stops and when the overall winner was announced were completely shocked and very surprised to win given the standard of all the entries."

Other Porsche GB stand highlights included a fine 1979 911 (type 930) Turbo Martini Edition from Porsche centre Reading and Byfleet’s 1988 911 Targa Sport 3.2. Porsche centre Guildford also exhibited its as-new 1990 type 964 Targa 3.6.
