From the outside, the Porsche Classic house appears to be a minimal warehouse. But step inside, and Six 959s, a Carrera GT, a 550 Spyder, an Abarth 356, a Super 90, to name a few, can be found on the floor. Interestingly enough, every one of the cars in the facility were sold to consumers, driven around the world, and eventually found their way to the Stuttgart sanctuary.
Porsche Classic itself is a division of Porsche AG that manages and caters to, well, owners of classic Porsche models. It offers components to customers looking to restore their old Porsches street cars of ten years old or more, along with in-house restoration services.
And in terms of longevity statistics, just over 70 percent of all Porsche models ever built are still registered on the road — which speaks volumes in terms of value and owner care. Porsche owners from all over the world will even send their classics to the Porsche Classic house for routine maintenance, or even to be fully restored.
But if sending a Porsche to Stuggart for fixing up seems a tad steep, all Porsche dealers possess allocation to order whatever part a classic Porsche owner needs— a selection of roughly 35,000 parts. Though if sending the classic model over is an absolute must, owners can rest assured that their car will be carefully, thoroughly, and passionately touched up by workers who share the kind of devotion and affection for the brand that exceed expectations — some with over forty years of experience in the company — with specialists for just about everything imaginable when it comes to the Porsche family.
Just how thorough and intricate is the restoration process? It’s so detailed, that Porsche even revisits the old manufacturing processes and tooling used relevant to whatever model being maintained or restored. And in doing so, the model in question actually retains its value greater than a typical, random shop job. And that alone makes Porsche Classic amazingly special.
