Here in the Madonie moun- Utains was the start of the legendary Targa Florio— the very first and very last of the great road races. From 1906 to 1973, interrupted only by wars, it was one of the THE most important events in the auto racing calendar. In its final form it was a 72km circuit on narrow, mountain- ous Sicilian public roads with 567 turns and a ten-lap race. It attracted the greatest drivers and cars in the world, and has a long and intense history of Porsche involvement. As cars got faster and safety became more of an issue after the 1955 Le Mans disaster, road racing fell out of favour, and first the curtain came down on Mille Miglia and finally TARGA on the Targa. In 1919, a young Enzo Ferrari drove his first race here, and in 1924 the designer of the winning Mercedes drove one of the cars himself. His name was Ferdinand Porsche, and his co-driver was one Alfred Neubahr who later went on to manage the legendary Silver Arrows.

It’s quiet now, not a car in sight, the stands and pits locked and abandoned. Behind the chain link fence sits a bust of FLORIO Vincenzo Florio who founded the race in 1906. A large sign denotes the historic race. Yet, this was once a centre of frantic preparation, cheering fans and fierce competition.

38 DEPARTMENTS The Journal of Upper Canada Region 39 FEATURE A NEW LINE OF BUSINESS SERVING OLDER CARS > By Robert Eberschlag, UCR Member; photographs of the Revive The Passion 911 restoration project, courtesy of Porsche AG 40 PORSCHE The Journal of Upper Canada Region 41 S. See, that’s where we are. When we were at the Porsche Parade in Savannah last year, we found out that most of the US customers—I don’t know about the Canadian cus- tomers, but I think it is similar—have no idea that they can get all the Porsche Classic parts at the local Porsche dealer. There are more than 35,000 parts available and we dis- tribute them to Porsche dealers worldwide. So the Porsche Classic roadside assistance is one possibility, to first get to know the customers from our point of view and then the other side that the customers get to know the Porsche deal- ers again or the first time. Many customers don’t have a new car like a 997 or whatever, so we try to get them into the Porsche dealer.

Before that we did the restoration mainly for Europeans.

R. I notice that the classic program gets cut off at a certain year, I think it is basically the end of the air-cooled era; the 986s, 996s and 997s are not eligible for the program. Is the plan that with every passing year you will bring in one more year of car? Are you looking back 20 years, or are you looking back by model type?

S. The cars we’re taking care of are all the models that ran out of production ten years ago, so the total model line, for example, the 993 ran out in 98, so in 2009 we took over at Porsche Classic because the parts suppliers of the cars told us they could not deliver parts 10 years after the end of produc- tion. This is where the classic specialist in the parts purchase department tries to keep up with the classic parts and that actually is a difficult thing to do because the original suppliers don’t have to supply us any more.

R. I guess one of your considerations is that a lot of old Porsches are still on the road and that’s why this program makes sense. If you are a manufacturer that had a very low survival rate for the cars, it wouldn’t be economic.

S. More than 70 percent of the old Porsches are still running. And of course it is getting more because we are producing higher numbers now, but these numbers are confirmed to the 993. The more customers that are coming into the dealerships and buying our original parts, the more parts we do, the better prices we can do.
