I first worked on these cars 12 years ago in a Porsche approved bodyshop and always wanted one.

Bought a massive spec Cayenne a year ago but it’s wasnt the same so picked this up last week. The previous owner hasn’t skimped one bit on its mechanical upkeep, some of the bills are eye watering. Unfortunately the outside needs a good fettling but that’s what I do.

Wheels are away being stripped and powder coated while I get on with sorting the other bits out.

Lovely looking motor. I’m sure it’ll be up to your exacting standards in no time!

I’m most jealous of your garage floor. I wish mine would stay that clean and shiny!

The front end is just a bit chippy. The back bumper has a small scuff on it and a few marks on the door.

I used to work for a Porsche Approved bodyshop so I’m slightly ***** about these things.

Seat backs are coming off for a bit of TLC too. Thumb
