Fascination and enthusiasm for Porsche vehicles have always been closely connected with the history of Porsche. This applies particularly to classic Porsche cars, and Porsche Centre Melbourne works passionately to supply spare parts for these cars, and in doing so, helps to ensure that they are preserved.
With the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate, Porsche Centre Melbourne offer the option to test historical Porsche vehicles (from the 356 to the Carrera GT) extensively, inspect them and provide the customers with historical information.
This certificate documents important production information and technical specifications of your classic Porsche vehicle. Your Porsche Classic Technical Certificate includes original vehicle data at the time it was delivered, such as date of production, the exterior and interior colour and material, and optional equipment. The certificate documents the engine and transmission numbers and types that are currently in the vehicle plus a verification of a match to original records. Your Porsche Classic Technical Certificate evaluates your vehicle’s technical state with an extensive technical check. The evaluation includes inspection results for the exterior, interior, drive system, underbody and suspension. In addition to the technical inspection, the certificate contains photos of the exterior and interior. A detailed summary of your Porsche vehicle’s inspection from the Porsche Classic-trained technician is also included in this document.
Why order the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate?
Your classic Porsche vehicle is a historic and original machine. Every classic vehicle has a unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), engine number, transmission number, and much more individualised information from the time of production. These pieces of information can say a lot about your vehicle and its history: When was it built? Where was it delivered to? Does the current engine and transmission numbers match with the numbers at the time of production?
It is possible over time that aggregates of a classic Porsche vehicle could have been replaced or the original information could have been lost. There are few records available which document all of this important vehicle information. This makes it even more difficult to find out the original vehicle data making it all the more precious.
With the collection and storage of the historic Porsche documents, Porsche Centre Melbourne is able to provide many pieces of original vehicle information about your classic Porsche vehicle. Therefore Porsche Centre Melbourne proudly offers the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate. This certificate is the only opportunity to get the original data of your classic vehicle and assures their accuracy. If required, your classic vehicle can be reconditioned to an excellent state by certified technicians at Porsche Centre Melbourne.
Last but not least, the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate includes an expert opinion from the Porsche Centre Melbourne, signed by the General Manager and Service Advisor. Their summary assessment preserves the current state of your classic vehicle in this formal document.
