Marking the 75th Birthday of The Master of the Mont, Walter Röhrl, Porsche Centre Wilmslow would like to congratulate one of the greatest rally drivers of all time on his recent 75th Birthday.
Not only was he crowned World Rally champion twice, but he is also one of the only drivers ever to have won world championship rounds in both rallying and racing.
He was victorious in every class or series – whether TransAm, IMSA, hill climbs (Pikes Peak) or in the German Touring Car Championship. Röhrl is regarded as the world’s greatest rally driver of all time and, at the same time, he is known for his honesty, being someone who always says what he thinks. Röhrl has been a Porsche brand ambassador since 1993 and until recently was also a Porsche test driver, putting the final touches on all new production cars on the Nordschleife. Originally from Regensburg, Röhrl was particularly involved in developing the 959, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder supercars.
For Röhrl, work also means looking after his own fleet of vehicles, which includes several classic 911 derivatives. Incidentally, his first vehicle was a Porsche 356 B Coupe with 75 PS.
Happy Birthday Walter from the entire Porsche Centre Wilmslow team.

For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
