Norfolk Premier Coachworks is one of the UK's leading Porsche restoration bodywork centres. Our track record and pedigree in bringing historic vehicles back to life is second to none and has seen hundreds of stunning and very desirable cars win many trophies.
With a 20 year career history restoring classic Italian and German cars, Wayne Parker launched Norfolk Premier Coachworks back in 2004. The first two projects were a Porsche 3.0RS and a 2.7RS, both of which now reside in well known celebrity car collections! These naturally helped a leaning towards early Porsche, soon giving way to the first of many genuine 356 Speedster restorations as well as two original STs.
Many years restoring cars of the 'superleggera' method of construction, coupled with an excellent knowledge of aluminium, gave Wayne an incredible insight into how to build a car from the ground up - even if there was not much to start with. The use of Spanesi jigs for all structural restoration work ensures factory dimensions are always maintained. As well as the use of these essential technical tools, the team at Norfolk Premier Coachworks skills include modern spot welding (TIG, gas and aluminium) as well as traditional skills for hand crafted panel fabrication - essential when hard to find restoration parts are virtually none existing for some rare cars. The premised includes a state of the art, low-bake oven, used alongside a Glassuit 55 line solvent refinishing system and De Beers water based facilities.
The team of 5 craftsmen provide a combined experience of over 50 years of car restoration knowledge between them. Two of the younger employees have evolved as apprentices with the firm, ensuring longevity in the business, as well a genuine handover of traditional skills and mindsets.
Our incredible attention to detail is the key reason why so many of the UK's and Europe's leading classic car specialists use Norfolk Premier Coachworks. Clearly a testament to our ability at providing the vest highest standards of classic car and Porsche restoration services.
