You're too old for a car, Porsche tell Peter Bowles: Exorcist star, 81, is denied a courtesy motor while his was being repaired as the garage 'couldn't insure him'

As lead actor in a West End show, it was only fitting that Peter Bowles arrived at the theatre in a suitably glamourous vehicle.

So the 81-year-old was a little fed up when he had to take his Porsche in for repairs only to be told he couldn’t have a courtesy car while the work was carried out – because he was ‘too old’.

The To The Manor Born star – who exercises regularly and has perfect eyesight – said the decision left him ‘very irritated’.

Porsche has since denied it has any upper limit on its insurance and has provided him with a replacement car. It said there had been a ‘genuine, human clerical error’.
