On Saturday 3 September 2016 Porsche Centre Portsmouth held our inaugural Show & Shine Day in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
We welcomed all Porsche owners to participate in the event where prizes were presented in numerous categories. Each category was judged by experts and prizes were awarded at the end of the day. The Porsche cars were judged by Porsche Club GB members Tony Bull and Charlie McLaughlin. Trophies were presented by our Sales Manager, Jon Betts and Aftersales Manager, Leigh Rye.
The first prize was awarded to Mr Steve Thomson’s stunning Guards Red 911 GT3 for ‘Best New Porsche’. The timeless exterior paint colour and daring rear spoiler captured the attention of many Porsche enthusiasts on the day.
The ‘Mid-Age Porsche’ category featured Porsches built 1997-2006. Mr Paul Bryett’s 996 Carrera 2 took the title with its gleaming silver exterior and polished finish.
The final category was for Porsche Classic cars built before 1997. The winning Porsche Classic was Mr Darren Collins’ 914 for its rarity and incredible condition.
The day also featured a Scalextric tournament where young Porsche enthusiasts swarmed the race track, cheering one another as the cars edged to the finish line. Refreshments were available throughout the day as well as tours of the Centre and workshop.
The day was a success and guests expressed positive feedback of the event. We look forward to making our Show & Shine Day an annual event.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
