Technical Certificate

Pit stop. For your classic car.

Fascination and enthusiasm for Porsche vehicles have always been closely linked to the history of Porsche. This applies all the more to classic vehicles, of course: Porsche Classic is passionately dedicated to supplying spare parts so as to preserve these vehicles.

With the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate, Porsche Classic Partners offer their customers the opportunity to have classic Porsche vehicles (from the 356 to the Carrera GT) undergo a technical check as well as providing historical information.

Porsche Classic Technical Certificate (1,18 MB / deutsch)

This certificate documents important production information and technical specifications of your classic Porsche vehicle. The 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 as well as providing verification of a match with the original records. It also evaluates your vehicle’s technical state with an extensive technical check. The evaluation includes an inspection of various areas such as wheels and tyres, drive system, engine compartment, fluids, exterior and interior. In addition to the technical inspection, the certificate contains photos of your classic car’s exterior and interior. A detailed summary of your Porsche vehicle’s inspection by a Porsche Classic-trained technician is also included in this document.

What advantages does the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate offer?

Every classic Porsche 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? Do the current engine and transmission numbers match 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, which in turn makes those data all the more precious.

By registering and storing the historical Porsche documents, Porsche Classic is able to provide many pieces of original vehicle information about your classic Porsche vehicle. This is why Porsche Classic is proud to offer the Porsche Classic Technical Certificate. If required after inspection, your classic vehicle can be reconditioned to an excellent state by certified technicians at a Porsche Classic Partner.

As you can see, there are many reasons to have a Porsche Classic Technical Certificate issued:

  • Check the engine and transmission number
