On Saturday 27 January 2018, Porsche Centre Bolton hosted the inaugural ride and drive event to Leicester Tigers Rugby Club. This will become an annual event in conjunction with the National Farmers Union.
A convoy of eye-catching Porsche vehicles, headed up by our new Panamera Sport Turismo, along with a 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman S and 911 Carrera 4S Coupe could be seen brightening up the wet, dismal roads of Bolton as they embarked on their journey to Leicester. The route took them on the M60 towards Stockport, then onto Disley and over the High Peak Hills towards the beautiful and scenic Chatsworth and Baslow, where a welcome coffee break took place. Following refreshments, guests were encouraged to swap cars in order to experience a different model.
On arrival at the Welford Road Stadium in Leicester, the group were greeted with a hearty lunch and enjoyed a great victory for Leicester against the Cardiff Blues with a score of 24 -12. Guests then swapped Porsche models again for a leisurely drive back home to Bolton.
* 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.
