Any area of the bodywork that could not reproduce the desired new effect was replaced. The final paint and finishing process is, of course, to an industry standard second to none. The engine alone was subject to sixty hours of detailing and any components that didn't resemble production line finishes were replaced resulting in an engine bay that would look at home leaving the factory in 1986. The interior was also prepared to the same standard as production levels and this restoration was trusted to 'Beyond Leather' in London who were given access to the original fabrics and leather resulting in a period correct interior. The finished article was exhibited by Porsche at both the Silverstone Classic and the Nurburgring in 2016 to much acclaim. It comes complete with a new crash helmet in matching body colour signed by Porsche legend Derek Bell and Porsche Letter of Authenticity. These high-performance Grand Tourers are an engineering masterpiece and, restored to this level by experts, could make a fine investment at this realistic guide.
