Porsche Centre Wilmslow was delighted to host the Porsche Club GB annual meeting on Wednesday 14 November. The event attracted a record attendance of 235 members and guests for a great evening at the Centre which was put together by Porsche Club Northern Regional Director Philip Graham and Centre Principal Jason Shenton.
Guests had the opportunity to explore the workshop and watch our Porsche-trained Technicians carrying out the fitment of a Sports Exhaust System to a Porsche 991 Coupé. The Service and Sales Teams were also on hand to help assist with any questions about Porsche. The Centre provided fantastic canapés and a light wine tasting experience for those not driving.
Mike Wilds also gave an inspirational presentation on his motor racing career. He has participated in eight F1 World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 20 July 1974. This year, at 72 years of age, Mike competed in the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain at Brands Hatch. It was clear from Mike’s presentation that he clearly still loves competing in motorsport with no signs of hanging up his signature yellow and black diamond crash helmet just yet.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
