Porsche Classic will showcase its comprehensive service offering from March 21 to 25, 2012, at the world's largest Classic trade fair in Essen. One of the highlights of the exhibit is the renowned 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which is on its 40th year in 2012.

To conclude the "40 years of the 911 Carrera RS" anniversary, a 911 Carrera RS 2.7 will be presented. This model has been restored by the specialists at Porsche Classic workshop.

Also to be exhibited is an early Porsche 911 unit. It is being currently restored for a client at Porsche Classic. Experts at Porsche Classic will be available during the exhibit in order to provide advice and offer practical assistance to guests with regard to the maintenance and preservation of the historic automobiles.

They will also provide information about the Porsche Classic original spare parts' availability such as the most sought-after "orange" Porsche bonnet badge for the 911 units with model years from 1965 to 1973.
