On the morning of 3 July, ten ladies arrived at Porsche Centre Chester ready for a day of fast cars, indulgence and pampering.
The ladies were welcomed into the Centre for refreshments before being introduced in pairs to the stunning 718 models they would be driving for the day.
Low, wide and sleek, the exterior design of the 718 models is distinguished by sporty edges and clearly defined formal contours. The turbocharged flat-four engines, with Porsche horizontally opposed piston arrangement, demonstrate greater environmental responsibility whilst giving the driver an experience to remember.
A mixture of 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models awaited the ladies and, after a brief introduction to the cars, they were able to drive off in convoy to The Cholmondeley Arms for some lunch.
The C holmondeley Arms is a charming pub based in Malpas, serving traditional food using seasonal produce. The pub has an interesting history and prides itself on having an impressive gin collection (366 bottles), which lends itself well to the regular gin nights hosted there.
After a delightful lunch, the guests once again left in convoy in the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman demonstrators and headed for The Chester Grosvenor in Chester city centre.
Upon arrival at the five star hotel, the cars all parked outside, which created quite a stir. We treated each lady to a complimentary luxury spa treatment and some downtime with refreshments before heading back to the Centre.
For more information about the 718 Boxster or 718 Cayman, please email the team or visit Porsche Centre Chester.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
