Recently, we displayed our new 911 Carrera at The Valley Community School in Astley Bridge as part of and inspirational afternoon for pupils aged 4 to 11. Porsche Centre Bolton was there to encourage pupils to dream big, and to give them first-hand experience of a brand new luxury car as part of a writing task, based on a boy who dreams of owning his own car.
Headteacher Kevan Naughton said, “Most children in the school have been tasked with writing a realistic, descriptive narrative based on an advert in which a youngster falls in love with a Porsche that he catches sight of through a classroom window. We were fortunate to have the same style of car visit the school, to enable children to see it up nice and close for themselves. Some were lucky enough to sit in it, which quite frankly made their day! “Importantly, it also inspired them in their subsequent writing activity, as they could write from personal experience.”
Kieran Anderson, our New Car Sales Leader said: “I began my journey peering through the windows of car showrooms dreaming of the cars inside and I am privileged to work with them every day. Hopefully the children will grow up to have successful careers and will remember the day they saw the red 911 when they are buying their own.”
* 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.
