Restoration Challenge crowns Champion Porsche

The Florida-based dealership has taken top honours in the Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge awards

The second annual Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge entered its final stages at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during Sports Car Together Fest, hosted by Porsche Cars North America. Launched in February, the Challenge saw more than 60 dealerships from around the United States take part. Teams of certified Porsche Technicians raided the official catalogue of 60,000 Porsche Classic Genuine Parts to return their chosen cars to their former glory.

Taking part into the 2022 competition were Porsche 356 and 914 models, five generations of 911, transaxle models such as the 944 and 928, as well as modern classics – the first-generation 986 Boxster, Cayenne and Carrera GT.

Following months of restoration work, three finalists were brought together at the three-day Indianapolis show: a 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo Type 930 restored by Champion Porsche; a 1996 911 Carrera 4S Type 993 from Porsche Exchange; and a 1982 Porsche 911 SC Type 930 from Porsche Palm Springs. The finalists were rolled into the famous Winner’s Circle at the Motor Speedway, with the Champion Porsche 930 restoration securing top honours.

“Not a single bolt was left unturned, and every single part was either replaced with new genuine parts from Porsche Classic or restored, “said a representatives from Champion Porsche. “Our mission was to restore our 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo 930 to exactly what the original factory build sheet called for, resulting in a true factory restoration.

“The competition this year was definitely stiff and there were some amazing builds out there. The cars that made it to Sports Car Together Fest was proof of that. It was great to talk Porsche with all the fellow competitors, and to even feel a camaraderie amongst everyone.”
