WINTER FUN IN FINLAND
Finnish Porsche parts specialist 9xx opens service unit
With the ongoing cold snap here in the UK comes some timely inspiration from colder climes. Much colder climes. Over in Finland, summer only lasts a few months and they have the sort of proper corpsestiffening winters that make the odd flurry in the UK look like a balmy Caribbean shower. But that doesn’t stop the Fins from having fun with their Porsches.
Finnish Porsche parts specialist 9xx-parts has recently branched out into servicing and maintenance with its new 9xx-garage venture based in Hankasuontie 5, Helsinki. 9xx says the long winter months provide plenty of time for tinkering, tuning and maintenance. The aim is top level of care and prep aimed at both road and track use.
What’s more, with the sister parts outfit on the same site, there’s ample access to parts and indeed access to 9xx-parts’ in-house product designers should custom parts be required. The net result is a one-stop-shop for Finnish Porsche fans. The parts arm, meanwhile, can ship its extensive range of parts for almost every Porsche ever produced worldwide.
As it happens and lest you forget, the Porsche connection with Finland is rather robust. Porsche also had Boxsters and Caymans manufactured under licence in Finland by Valmet from 1997 through 2011, an arrangement that sired no fewer than 227,890 Porsches before production was brought back to Germany.
