On Saturday 17th June, Porsche Bolton held a beach-themed Open House event in the showroom.
The beach theme incorporated an 'Under The Sea' bouncy castle, a surfing simulator, a paddling pool filled with child-friendly sand and an ice luge. Guests took part in various sports including beach volley ball, badminton and table tennis. There were beach toys aplenty plus a gazebo and Porsche Bolton Deckchairs for some much needed shade and relaxation. Our very own “Chef Adam” tended the BBQ and an old fashioned ice cream cart helped to cool everyone down.
Guests enjoyed the first few hours of the Le Mans 24 Hours Endurance Race streamed live on the big screen in the showroom. To our delight Porsche won for the third consecutive time, taking the total number of wins to 19.
We were lucky enough to have borrowed a vintage Porsche tractor, a 1956 Allgaier A111 single-cylinder air-cooled diesel in a very striking orange. On display in the workshop were our two previous Porsche Classic Restoration Competition projects, the 924 Ocean Green Turbo and the Black 924 Carrera GT, winner of the Mechanical Category.
In its partially stripped state and on view for customers to vote for their favourite Porsche racing livery, was our 2018 Porsche Classic 'Restoracing' Competition entry, a 2001 Boxster S. Choices for the racing livery were Apple Computers, Hippy Car and Wally’s Jeans. Wally’s Jeans was the people's choice.
Customers were able to take demonstration drives accompanied by members of our Service and Technical teams to give an in depth understanding of the more technical aspects of the vehicles.
With over 280 customers and children in attendance, it proved to be a fabulous day all round.
