911 Porsche World - - News And Views -

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.
