On Thursday 13 September members of thePorsche Centre Chester team travelled to Anglesey Circuit to take part in a track day, taking with them some very special cars.
The day was hosted by Equilibrium Asset Management; a wealth management company who invited us to take part so we could introduce their clients to the Porsche brand.
We took a selection of cars along for the day to demonstrate both on and off the track, including the 718 Boxster S, Carrera 4 GTS Coupé, Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet, Macan Turbo and a Panamera E-Hybrid. In addition, we also displayed a Porsche Approved Pre-Owned 911 GT3 RS, and our very own Porsche 986 Boxster S race car (registered in 2000) which recently came 8th in the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition.
Each guest had the opportunity to experience the extraordinary performance and handling of a number of our Porsche demonstrators on the track, alongside one of our qualified instructors to guide them with the technology and handling.
* 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.
