A fountain of youth

Around two-thirds of all sports cars ever built by Porsche still exist today. Porsche Classic ensures that around 150,000 vehicles of the 911 model range alone are still being driven today.

Around two-thirds of all sports cars that were ever built with the Porsche crest on the hood still exist today. Naturally, this applies in particular to the classic cars of the 911 model range. Around 150,000 911 cars from the model years 1964 to 1989 are still on the road today. For all air-cooled Porsche 911 cars, Porsche Classic offers technical support at the plant, ranging from the sale of spare parts to complete restoration. The focus is on maintaining the uniqueness and authenticity of each and every Porsche vehicle.

For this reason, Porsche Classic has dedicated itself to the brand value of tradition. The stock of premium original parts, which were no longer around before, is therefore being expanded continuously. 35,000 parts are currently in stock, ready for delivery on demand. Originality and quality constitute the basis of this range of parts. Hence the original parts are procured from former production suppliers or from new special suppliers. Factory documents such as original drawings, detailed descriptions as well as an extensive sample parts warehouse are available for the reproduction of the parts. The high Porsche standard in terms of technology and safety is guaranteed throughout. The range of original parts of Porsche Classic is available through the international trade organisations, with 700 Porsche Centres worldwide.

800 instruction manuals available

For better information, Porsche AG offers a catalogue of Porsche original parts. It includes all vehicle models as well as the Tequipment and literature catalogue. The parts catalogue for Porsche original parts comes out twice a year as a CD-ROM. PDF files for viewing the parts as well as search tools, stock and technical archive are included. Furthermore, Porsche Classic attends to the technical literature. Around 800 instruction manuals, guarantee certificates and maintenance booklets are available.

Alongside the worldwide parts supply and the provision of technical literature, Porsche Classic naturally also attends to the repair, maintenance and restoration of the classic cars. As a Porsche Classic customer, you can be certain that only qualified and established specialists take care of your car. The soon to-be classic cars of the 964 and 993 series are also welcome.

Specialists with experience and passion

The Porsche Classic workshop in Freiberg am Neckar is the place to go if you have any Porsche vehicle from bygone days, whether your need is a simple oil change, repair after an accident or a complete restoration. The customer turns in his vehicle directly to the Porsche Classic service consultant. 30 specialists work with experience and passion on the automotive treasures in the Porsche Classic workshop. Around 300 vehicles are taken care of every year, including up to 30 major projects.

The 1,500 square metre plant also houses the body shop plus paint shop as well as the engine and gearbox manufacturing for the classic Porsche cars. And an in-house saddlery. As part of a complete restoration, the body goes through a cathodic dip coating bath, which guarantees the best corrosion protection possible. In addition, Porsche Classic can avail itself of the original straightener kits, frame gauges and data sheets. A visit of the customer to the Classic workshop while his Porsche is being worked on is welcomed emphatically; on this occasion, the progress and how to proceed further is jointly coordinated.

If the car is completely overhauled, the vehicle will come out technically as good as new yet retains its original character. Upon the completion of the work, the customer is handed a detailed documentation with extensive pictorial material and an engraved badge, confirming with chassis number and signature the original plant restoration by Porsche Classic.
