A customer has left his Porsche 968 Clubsport with us for a light restoration. It’s a car he’s been using regularly and it’s covered over 100,000 miles. The colour is Speed Yellow but it’s faded to more of a Slow Yellow which, together with a good dose of muck makes the car look, well, a bit of a mess.
However, appearances can be deceptive, as we found out when we performed a full inspection on the 968.
The car has been regularly serviced on the button and has been kept mechanically in very good order. Indeed, our fastidious inspection brought up nothing more than a couple of light engine oil leaks and a broken clock (but then they always are on 968s and, besides, there was a new one in the glovebox ready to be fitted).
The paintwork might be faded but is otherwise sound. However, we’re going to treat it to a full respray and fit new seals all round. What this space as the project progresses.
