The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic, high-performance sports cars in the world. A favourite of famous personalities from Steve McQueen to Ralph Lauren, the German manufactured, two-door stylish motor has been in production and development for over 50 years now. It has undergone many changes, though the base concept has remained largely the same throughout the past half century.
Such a classy vehicle requires only the best treatment and preparation before it goes out on the roads. That’s why here at SGS we were more than happy to team up with Drive Detailing and allow their expert detailer to use some of our garage tools to help clean and prepare a Porsche 911 Turbo S model for business. Check out the video and discover more about the tools used below.
Drive Detailing is based in Loughborough and offers a range of professional services to reinvigorate many vehicles. From paintwork restoration to deep-cleaning and more, their expert team and offerings can get any car ready for a show presentation or just so it gives off that professional vibe on the streets.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S that receives such excellent treatment is one of the series’ most powerful models, possessing 580 hp. A top speed of 205 mph (330km/h) is supported by the rapid acceleration that allows it to do 0 to 62mph in just 2.9 seconds with Launch Control. From a starting price of just under £150,000, such quality doesn’t come cheap and it rightly demands the professional cleaning and detailing it receives. Plus, it looks crisp and clear in a pure white finish.
SGS Tools in Action
It’s no surprise that a broad selection of reliable garage tools from those available at SGS are used by the expert detailer at Drive Detailing when cleaning and preparing this Porsche 911. SGS tool chests and cabinets can be seen in the background holding many of the tools required to begin preparing the vehicle, with those on wheels making it incredibly easy to move them all around.
A trolley jack is used to raise the Porsche 911 before the tyres are taken off and cleaned inside and out. From the SGS air tools selection, a reversible air drill is used to help with the removal of the tyre and hubcap for each wheel. Everything is then given a nice, thorough clean, with the spoiler and bodywork all buffered to provide that extra shine that makes the car stand out.
As the video shows, the pairing of SGS garage tools with the expertise of Drive Detailing was a successful one. The end result is fantastic, with the white Porsche 911 Turbo S gleaming, and looking sharp enough to fit in any petrol head’s garage.
